Hereford United Focus
New Boss Martin Foyle has signed two strikers in Marlon Jackson (Bristol City) and Ryan Bowman (Darlington FC): Midfielder Marley Watkins from Bath City; plus a double raid on Forest Green Rovers for defender Luke Graham and keeper James Bittner. Following relegation the Bulls are struggling with even a public appeal for donations as they fight to cut costs following relegation. The Bulls run of luck seems unlikely to change with the new keeper out and set to see a specialist and Purkiss and Featherstone have also signed for Walsall today. Purdie (Shrewsbury Town), Colbeck (Grimsby Town) and Arquinn (Notts County) will also be missed.
