Quality of applicants for Hereford vacancy causing problems

Hereford have been forced to extend their selection process for a new manager due to "the sheer quality of applications". New chairman David Keyte, who took the reins last Friday, has revealed he had narrowed down 30 applications to a three-man shortlist.

At the time, he said: "We've spoken to two of them, the third we'll speak to on Tuesday. One of them is in a higher league, one of them is lower in the Conference, the third one is an interesting one but he's not got a great deal of experience. We hope to be able to settle something next week."

But the League Two outfit have been inundated with fresh applications over the past couple of days and are now aiming to appoint a new boss within the next 10 to 14 days.

Keyte told the club's official website: "We are both delighted and flattered the Hereford job has attracted so much attention and it's vital we take our time to find the best we can for the club. Originally we drew up a shortlist of three but now the sheer quality of applications has forced us to extend it."
