Beadle Says He's Disappointed With Budget For Next Season


Hereford FC manager Peter Beadle has told the Hereford Times that he is disappointed with the budget he's been given for next season.

He says that it's proving difficult to do agree new deals with several players including Ryan Green, John Mills and Pablo Haysham.

"What they're asking for isn't massively unreasonable for what they have achieved but we just can't meet it with our budget," said Beadle.

"I'm disappointed with the budget as there is very little to reward the players who have won promotion with us. It's what we have to work with and we can't sacrifice the team for one or two players. If we give them extra then we have got to take money from other places.

"Ryan (Green) is the same and he has been here a long time and is a stalwart. We are also in a position where we can't get close to what he is asking for. I think the three are asking for the going rate for this level of football and we can't match that demand.

"It's now a waiting game to see what they decide to do. It's not ideal for me as I want the three of them here but my hands of tied with them three. "We are also still waiting for Will (Puddy) and Elliot (Richards). It has been a tough couple of weeks as for what the players have achieved unfortunately I've not be able to reward them with what they deserve but it's what I've got to keep working with." 


Beadle is hopeful season tickets sales will go well which will help with the budget but he has warned that he can't currently compete with some of the wages being paid.

"It looks like we will have to find one or two rough diamonds to bolster what we've already got. For me that's not ideal as I want to continue the momentum but I think it's going to be the toughest year yet in a division where teams are paying players between £600 and £900 a week and we can't compete with that."
