New Bulls boss Simon Davey will spend the next three days meeting players to assemble his new squad.
With Friday's press conference still going ahead, Davey will spend the three days before then travelling the motorway network to secure his opening signings.
He inherits a squad of just seven, with one contract offer to Richard Rose still outstanding. His targets will include at least two central defenders, a pair of wingers, and a couple of strikers as well as a second goalkeeper and backup in other areas.
Chairman David Keyte told the official site they had interviewed nine people in less than three weeks, and that Davey was their main candidate: "We had several good people come for the job but Simon stood out. He is a man on a mission - he tasted the best of times with Barnsley by taking them to Wembley and he wants more, he wants the chance to prove himself as one of the top managers and coaches in the game and lucky for us he sees Hereford as the next big challenge."
Davey expressed to the site his football philosophy: "My football philosophy is to play attacking football. We all want to win but I want to win in style and the Hereford board have told me their biggest wish is to see exciting football at Edgar Street - they want to entertain the fans.
"I've already got several targets in mind and now it's a question of doing deals and shaping a team for the future."
