Mon 5th Jul 2010 | Clubs Ownership

David Keyte and Tim Russon have been named as the new Chairman and Vice Chairman of Hereford United.

Speaking at a press conference at Edgar Street, Keyte said that the budget for next season will be "similar, if not slightly more than last season’s budget."

Chairman Keyte, outlined his vision stating he wants the club to become more involved with the local community.

On the manager front, a new boss should be selected within a fortnight. There is currently a shortlist of three.

He added "It's a dream come true."

Russon is hopeful that Kenny Lunt and other players offered contracts will sign shortly.

"We want fans to come and enjoy football. We want fans to be proud of their club."

Russon: "Managers on the shortlist have all had success."

The pair will take over from outgoing Chairman Graham Turner and Company Secretary Joan Fennessy with immediate effect.

The names of those in recent talks with Turner and Fennessy have been a closely guarded secret since the pair put their shares up for sale towards the end of the season, bringing to an end a period of 15 seasons at the club for Turner.
