TRIPLE title-winning manager Peter Beadle has been sacked by Hereford with “unanimous agreement” from the club’s board.

Beadle took charge of the reformed Bulls in the Midland Football League, winning the Premier Division, Southern League South & West and Southern League Premier Division crowns during his three years in charge.

That dominance has been stifled since climbing to National North, though, with Hereford sat 12th with three wins and two draws from eight matches so far this season.

Chairman Ken Kinnersley said: “This is not a decision the board has taken lightly and it is one made with a heavy heart. However, the directors are in unanimous agreement that now is the right time to make a change.

“While recent results have been disappointing, this is a decision taken more with the long-term goal of progressing to the Football League in mind.

“We feel it will give the club the best possible chance of continuing the positive progress it has made so far.

‘We’d like to sincerely thank Pete for all his hard work over the past three seasons and no-one here will ever underplay his achievement in securing three championship wins in three seasons and a Wembley appearance having had to build a squad from scratch.

“We will always be grateful for all the happy memories he has given everyone who cares about this club.”

Beadle’s assistant Steve Jenkins has also left. No announcement has been made about who is in temporary charge.
