Mawson close to new deal

Craig Mawson is understood to be very close to signing a new deal with Hereford United.

Graham Turner is said by the Hereford Times to be still waiting to hear from those players who he has offered deals to, however it looks as though there will be good news within a few days.

Less certain is the position of current captain Tony James. Rumours of a move to Yeovil appears to no more than speculation. It is known that Gary Johnson was tracking him some months ago but there has been no sign of any deal.

Johnson, who is beleived to be looking for several players to boost his squad, has made a couple of signings already including Luke Oliver from Woking. Oliver, a 6ft 7 in center-half, is only 20 and Johnson was quoted as saying that "he has terrific potential."

Also in the Hereford Times, Turner mentions the pre-season programme which already includes two home games against the Bristol teams.

"Ideally, I would like to have seven or eight games, four of which would be at home."

He also revealed the thinking behind the slight increase in season ticket prices.

"There was support for match-day admission prices remaining the same at our recent supporters liasion committee but there was a big differential with the season ticket prices so the gap has closed slightly."

Meanwhile former Bull Gavin Williams could be playing in the Premiership next season. West Ham have reached the Championship play-off final.
