Simon Davey has been appointed Hereford's new manager, just six days after his shock resignation at Darlington. The former Barnsley boss has penned a two-year deal to take over at Edgar Street, succeeding caretaker manager and chairman Graham Turner after he ended his 15-year association with the club by selling his shareholding.
New chief David Keyte made the long-awaited appointment along with fellow new vice-chairman Tim Russon after extending their deadline due to a surge in applications.
And Davey told the club's official website: "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."
