Hereford FC have provided a managerial update for supporters following the departure of Josh Gowling last weekend.

A statement released by Hereford FC earlier today said:

“We wanted to update supporters with plans for appointing a new manager.

“Whilst it is our aim to appoint someone within the next few weeks, we realise that the importance of making the right decision cannot be understated, and therefore, we will not rush into any quick decisions.

“Full due diligence will be completed before hiring any manager, and this process can sometimes take longer than anticipated.

“Contingency plans in the case of a manager leaving have been drawn up for some time, and these have now been put into place, we have a list of what attributes we would like from our next manager, however, we are keen to enter this recruitment process with an open mind.

“We are delighted that Graham Turner has accepted our invite to assist in the recruitment process and we are sure that his knowledge, contacts and enthusiasm will be a fantastic help to us.

“We have already received a number of applications from a wide range of applicants, and we expect to continue to receive more over the coming week.

“In the near future, we will draw up a shortlist of applicants and interviews will be arranged.

“As we have said before, this is a key decision for the football club, and we will not rush into making an appointment if we do not feel it is the right one for the club.

“In the meantime, we are confident that Yan Klukowski, assisted by Jared Hodgkiss have the skills required to oversee the first team during this period, and we’d urge supporters to rally around our interim management team, and the players.”
