HEREFORD manager Paul Caddis has praised the ‘unbelievable’ support his side received as 4,516 fans packed into Edgar Street to watch their 1-1 draw with Gloucester City on New Year’s Day.

Caddis who was appointed Hereford boss in the summer has taken the Bulls up to fourth in the National League North with 43 points from 26 league games.

“It’s unbelievable, to see those numbers, word don’t give it justice, it’s remarkable,” said Caddis after the draw.

"It's remarkable what that group of players in the dressing room have done, I'm so proud of each and every one of them and everyone at the football club because that speaks volumes.

“They (the fans) see a group of players who are willing to fight until the death. Hopefully we can continue those number, they are a massive plus for us.”

Caddis had a clean slate in the summer and a reduced budget than his predecessor amid lower-than-expected attendances last season.

The Bulls boss took issue with comments from Gloucester manager Mike Cook, who claimed Hereford had an ‘unbelievable budget’.

Caddis added: “Some of the comments before the game (from the Gloucester manager), the ‘unbelievable budget’ that was branded about.

“It is unbelievable, but not in the way in which he said it. I don’t mind managers talking about decisions and football, but if he doesn’t know what goes on at this football club then I don’t think it’s right for him to comment.

“I’ve got four members of staff who are voluntary so that’s so disrespectful to them. It was a bit of a immature comment, he was obviously trying to deflect that they were in a tough moment.”
