Peter Beadle was sacked just under a year ago after winning three consecutive league titles

Peter Beadle has applied for the vacant Hereford manager’s job, The NLP understands.
Beadle, who led the phoenix club to three straight titles, wants an emotional return to Edgar Street and has submitted his CV.
The 47-year-old was a surprise departure just under a year ago having secured a hat-trick of league wins in their first three seasons.
He was replaced at the helm by Marc Richards but the club’s board chose to relieve the ex-Gloucester City boss of his duties just three games into this season.
Former Newport County manager Beadle has been out of management since leaving Hereford last September but it’s an appointment that will likely go down well with the Bulls’ faithful.
Beadle and his management team – which includes former Merthyr Town boss Steve Jenkins – took charge of the club when it formed from the ashes of Hereford United in 2014.
Starting at Step 5 in the Midland League, the new Hereford were crowned champions in their first season and also reached the FA Vase final at Wembley.
That was immediately followed with title success in the Southern League Division One South & West and then the Southern League Premier.
