Turner signs two
HEREFORD United are poised to unveil two more new signings, according to today's Evening News

John Grant, a striker formerly with Crewe Alexandra, has agreed terms to come to Edgar Street on a free transfer.

Director of Football Graham Turner has also recruited a left-back from a League club, although he will not name him until his contract with his previous club expires next week.

Turner said of 20-year-old Grant: "He is quick, mobile and strong, and has played about 10 times for Crewe."

Regionalisation set to return?
A report on the Nationwide website says that Division Two and Three clubs are being urged to consider regionalisation by the latest financial report into the state of English football.

Financial consultants Deloitte and Touche have produced the report which concludes that 70 per cent of turnover is the 'comfort' level for expenditure on wages and their head of sport Gerry Boon believes regionalisation could help save clubs £100,000 a year.

"We raised this issue in 1997 but there was a lot of emotion of anger against it," said Boon.

"However, most of the other recommendations we made at the time have been implemented and people are now bringing it back on to the agenda.

"The issue is not about saving on travelling costs, it is about looking at ways to generate significantly more money.

"The games would generate more interest because there are more local derbies and more travelling fans.

"In 1997 we estimated that each club could gain an additional £50,000 a year if they regionalised the league. Now we are probably looking at £100,000."

Devlin linked with Bulls
Northwich Victoria midfielder Mark Devlin is attracting interest from other Nationwide Conference clubs, but Vics boss and former Hereford attacker Jimmy Quinn is hopeful the midfielder will stay.

Hereford United have been linked with the former Exeter and Stoke City schemer, but Quinn told the Northwich Guardian: "I think he wants to stay and hopefully we can sort something out."

No news...
Every summer I have to post one of these - a no news article!

It's been a fairly quiet weekend at Edgar Street but hopefully, the squad will be bolstered from its current role of eight and we'll see some progress on the field too within the next few weeks.

Crozier backs move
The Football Association's chief executive Adam Crozier has backed the two-up, two-down movement between Division Three and the Conference.

Crozier said from England's Awaji Island World Cup base in Japan through "We are happy that the great effort that the FA has put into this process has paid off. This is good news for English football at all levels and it's a real bonus for fair play too.

"A lot of hard work from a lot of different people has gone into making this happen and we're delighted to have been able to help bring about this change."

Conference chief executive John Moules said: "For the supporters of Conference clubs and clubs across the country, this landmark decision brings their dreams to fruition."

Meanwhile, Steve Piearce, the former Hereford United attacker, has confirmed his move to Hednesford Town.

The ex-Halesowen striker signed a one-year deal with the Keys Park based side yesterday.
