HEREFORD boss Paul Caddis has signed a one-year contract extension which will see him remain in charge at Edgar Street until the end of the 2025/26 campaign.

In his first year in management Caddis has built a new side at Edgar Street and guided them to an 11th place finish and just six points outside the play-offs.

Hereford chairman Chris Ammonds says that having the manager contracted until 2026 will being stability.

He told the club’s website: “As a board, we know it is vitally important to ensure the club continues to move towards stability and extending Paul’s stay at Edgar Street is a key part of that.

“The success of any football club stems from the product on the field and this season we have watched some very entertaining matches and have been able to enjoy a team with a never say die attitude that has never given up.

“That attitude stems from the Paul and his staff and the way the players have embraced our club – and conducted themselves with supporters – is also a clear indication of the respect that is demanded by their manager.

Meanwhile Caddis had this message to fans: “I have always been open and honest with you and I will continue to do that for as long as I have the honour to represent this great football club as manager.

“I will make mistakes and I will get things wrong, but rest assured I will protect your football club with the integrity and respect it deserves.

“I could never have imagined my name being sung by supporters so loudly and consistently after just one season. It really is a special feeling for me because not many people, if any, knew what I would bring to your club.”
