Former manager dies

Former Hereford United manager Frank Lord has died. He was 68.

Lord reportedly died of a heart attack. He had been working in South Africa as a scout for Manchester United.

Frank Lord started out in professional football as a striker for Rochdale and went on to play for Crewe, Plymouth - where he had two spells - Stockport, Blackburn and Chesterfield before going into management at Edgar Street.

Lord managed Hereford United from 1980 to 1982, but wasn't very successful. His record showed 26 wins, 35 draws and 39 defeats from 124 matches in charge.
