Hereford United director of football Gary Peters leaves Edgar Street
10:42am Monday 29th October 2012 in Sport
HEREFORD United have today confirmed that director of football Gary Peters has left the Edgar Street club.
Bulls chairman David Keyte announced it has been decided that the position of director of football is redundant.
Keyte said: “Our current financial difficulties have been well documented and we continue the task of cost-cutting within the club.
“I have had a very constructive meeting with Gary about the current position and we have mutually agreed that the position is no longer required within the club.
"I would like to stress that this decision is in no way a reflection on Gary’s performance while at the club. His experience of the game is enormous and he has contributed fully to discussions on every subject.”
Keyte added: “Gary joined us at a difficult time last year and got an immediate response from the players. In recent months he has also helped with the selection of and settling in of Martin Foyle and Andy Porter.
"Gary has done a lot of good work towards reducing the excessive running costs of the football department with particular reference to contracts and accommodation of players.
“It was clear that a lack of experience within the football club was evident on his arrival and we have benefited from Gary’s experience and guidance. He leaves the club in a better state than when he arrived.
"The members of the board of directors would like to place on record our thanks for the unstinting effort that Gary put into his work over the past year and we wish him and his wife Jill every success in the future.”
