News Round Up



Former Hereford United defender John McCombe is Boston United's fifth signing of the summer. The 33-year old joins the club from Harrogate Town where he helped them secure promotion last season from the National League North. McCombe spent one season at Edgar Street where he made 27 league appearances for the Whites and scored in the 2-0 FA Cup win against Hartlepool United, but wasn't offered a new deal in the summer of 2008.

Matt Gardiner, who had a spell at Hereford United in 2001, has been appointed assistant coach at QPR. Gardiner rejoins John Eustace with the pair at the helm of Kidderminster Harriers for the past two seasons. The 44-year old told QPR's website the Championship club have a lot of gifted youngsters who are breaking into the first team so it’s a very exciting time to be joining.

Oxford-based Pablo Haysham has told the Hereford Times it's been an honour to play for the Bulls, but the travelling from next season would be too much with the other commitments in his life. Haysham said the last two weeks have been difficult and emotional, but he's had the best three years that he could ever have hoped for. 
It was announced earlier this week that Haysham has signed for Southern Premier League new-comers Salisbury, while John Mills also announced he was leaving the club yesterday.

Chester's new joint bosses Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley have been 'stunned and humbled' by the response of the club's supporters since their appointment. The pair met with some supporters at a City Fans United meeting and according the Chester Chronicle Johnson believes it's time to draw a line under last season and time for a 'clean slate' for the club.

AFC Telford United are keen to keep hold of two of their star players from last season, but manager Gavin Cowan says it need to be something that suits the players as well as the club. The Shropshire Star say the Bucks are in talks to keep Elliot Newby at the club while waiting to hear back on a contract offer to Dom Smith. The 22-year old winger scored seven goals in 38 appearances last season, while defender Smith, who's previously been on the books at Shrewsbury, ended the season strongly.
