HEREFORD marksman Andy Williams has agreed an extension to stay with the club for next season.

The 37-year-old home-town Bulls player returned to his boyhood club last season following a success career in the Football League.

His season was rocked by an injury during pre-season which saw him miss the first half of the campaign.

However, he returned with 10 goals in 22 appearances and two assists.

“I admire ‘Willo’ for the transition he’s made from being a professional footballer for over 20 years to now coming to terms with full time employment and part-time football,” Hereford manager Paul Caddis told the club’s website.

“He is the ultimate pro and lives his life in a way that gives him the best opportunity to be the best version of himself on match days.

“Since his return, Willo has shown exactly why I brought him to the club. He simply scores goals.”

Midfielder Lawson D’Ath has also signed for next season after impressing boss Caddis during the last four matches.

The 31-year-old joined from Banbury United for the last four matches and he has now penned a long-term deal.

“Lawson is a player we identified several months back when at Banbury and one we knew could bring experience and quality to us,” added Caddis.

“A top character with a calming influence both on and off the pitch. He’s slotted into the group with ease and has showed real quality on the pitch.

“Lawson will bring important qualities for us next season and we are delighted to welcome him into the group for the long term and we look forward to working with him on a regular basis.”
