Darlington chairman in scathing attack on former boss Davey

Darlington chairman Raj Singh launched a bitter attack on former manager Simon Davey and Hereford chairman David Keyte. Davey was appointed as the new Bulls boss on Tuesday, just six days after his shock resignation at Darlington due to what Singh was told were "personal reasons".

But after having listened to Davey's and Keyte's version of events at his official unveiling on Friday, the Quakers chief has hit out at the way the pair conducted their business.

"I'm absolutely infuriated," he said. "I've said nothing since we discovered he would end up at Hereford on Tuesday but I've listened to what they've all had to say and they're just insulting my intelligence. The rumours about Davey going to Hereford surfaced just under a fortnight ago, on Monday June 14, and as the saying goes, there's no smoke without fire."

Singh's continued: "Davey was not big enough to speak to me direct and that's the most disappointing thing in all of this. It's difficult to sit on the fence in these situations when someone is blatantly taking you for a ride, but I'm absolutely livid.

"It just goes to show that Hereford United and Simon Davey cannot be trusted. They are not honourable people and don't do their business in the right way. I've been asked about taking the legal route but in my view it isn't worth it.

"Having just taken over at Hereford after a turbulent time for their fans, I'd suggest Keyte rethinks the way he goes about his business, despite his comments insisting he's done nothing wrong."
