Caddis Bullish But Needs New Players To Tick All The Boxes

Hereford manager Paul Caddis has given fans an insight into the measures the club are going to take to get their summer signings spot on.

The Bulls missed out on the National League North play-offs by six points, finishing the season in 11th place.

That was a big improvement on the year before when they came 16th, and the manager has been rewarded for progress with a new contract.

He undertook a complete rebuild of the squad at year ago when he arrived and knows more changes will be needed in the months ahead.

Now he’s told supporters why he is playing it patient when it comes to recruitment - and it’s not just a potential players’ skill set that is being taken into consideration.

“I have conducted an awful lot of meetings in the Birmingham area with players we have identified as potential players we’d like to bring to the club,” he told the club’s website.

“Some of those talks have been positive. Some we have made offers. Some have been rejected due to financial gain at other clubs and some I have walked away from as I felt it wasn’t the character or personality I want to bring to our club.

“I will continue to watch hours of footage and reference check every player before signing them and of course meeting them in person also gives me a gauge of the personality.”

After signing his new contract and with over 700 season tickets already sold, he said the focus now falls on taking the next steps and is excited by the future.

He went on: “It’s important we continue to build and improve year on year and with your help I believe we can achieve good things at the club.”
