HEREFORD FC have appointed Josh Gowling and Steve Burr as the management team for next season.

Bulls defender Gowling made the step up to caretaker manager after Russell Slade left the club in January 2020, with Burr brought in as his assistant.

They guided the club away from the relegation zone before football was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Following the National League discussing a roadmap for a return of football was at a meeting yesterday (Thursday), Hereford FC's board moved to confirm Gowling and Burr's commitment to the Bulls.

Chairman Andrew Graham said: “We are delighted to be able to take the first steps towards the resumption of football with the commitment of Josh and Steve for the coming season.

"It has been a long wait for everyone and we share the frustration of the fans over the uncertainty of the past three months.

"Now we have a target of a potential return to action in September we can start building towards that.”


Josh Gowling added: “I am honoured to have the opportunity to manage at a club that means a lot to me, and I want to thank the board for giving me the chance to carry on the task we started back in January.

"The chairman has been very supportive over the lockdown period and both myself and Steve cannot wait to get started again.”
