Bulls appoint Davey as new boss

Hereford United have named the former Barnsley and Darlington boss Simon Davey as their new manager. Davey made his name at Oakwell, leading the Tykes to the FA Cup semi-finals, before taking over at Darlington just over two months ago. He was unable to stop the Quakers sliding out of the Football League, but did improve the club's fortunes in the last few weeks of the campaign. Davey said after his appointment had been confirmed: "Hereford is a club that's always enjoyed a fine reputation and now it's been given a tremendous boost by the arrival of a new chairman and vice-chairman. "I'm hugely impressed by their enthusiasm and passion for the club and I think the next few seasons are going to be very exciting at Edgar Street. "It's a fresh start - a chance for a new beginning and, from what I know, the fans are amongst the most loyal around and hopefully they'll come out in their thousands to cheer us on. "My football philosophy is to play attacking football. We all want to win but I want to win in style and the Hereford board have told me their biggest wish is to see exciting football at Edgar Street - they want to entertain the fans." Davey has agreed a two-year contract with the Bulls.
