Beadle Aims For Similar Squad Size Next Season

Hereford FC Peter Beadle doesn't think he'll to need to increase the size of his squad for next season's campaign in the Southern Premier League.

"We'll try and manage it as best we can," said Beadle.

"Most of this season we've gone with 21. We've finished it with 22 which includes youngsters Max and Rory and now Harry has come in towards the end.

"I'm not sure about a bigger squad. Even though this year we've been strong as a group we're always looking for every player to be a starter as hard as it is to keep everybody happy. We don't want anybody coming in just to make the numbers up.

"So we'll see how far we can stretch the budget and if we can get to 20/21 again for next season that will be a decent number to start on."

Meanwhile Beadle confirmed that Hereford had offered Kidderminster a pre-season friendly but it had been turned down.

"We've offered them a game here. They've now received an offer from someone else, a bigger game for them, so they have accepted that."
