Chris Barker Leaves Edgar Street

Hereford have this evening announced that player/coach Chris Barker has left the club to take up the assistant head coach role at Weston-Super-Mare.

"Barks has been given an opportunity to further his coaching career with a step back up to a managerial role," Beadle told the Hereford OS.

"He’s been an important player for us so far this season with his experience but he’s not getting any younger. 

"He knows where his future lies and we thank him for his efforts while at Edgar Street.”

Meanwhile Weston boss Scott Bartlett has told their official site: "This is a fantastic appointment and a real coup for the club. 

"I have got to know ‘Barks’ over the last few years in our roles at FGR and Aldershot and am looking forward to working with him and taking our Club forward. 

"He is vastly experienced as a player and a coach so brings a lot to the table. I think his experience will help our talented young players and thank the Board for backing me."

The 36-year old made 12 appearances for the Bulls since joining from Aldershot preseason.
