Former Port Vale and York boss Martin Foyle has been appointed as Hereford's new manager.

Foyle was chosen from a field of more than 40 candidates to fill the vacancy created by Richard O'Kelly's departure from Edgar Street in the wake of the Bulls' relegation from the npower Football League.

The 49-year-old's last job was with Northwich Victoria, who finished second in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier this season before being relegated for breaking financial rules, and Hereford chairman David Keyte insists Foyle's non-league pedigree was a key factor in his selection.
