Vale legends link up at Hereford United

Port Vale playing legends Andy Porter and Martin Foyle have linked up for a second time to form Hereford United’s new management team.

The pair were previously in charge at York City and following Foyle’s appointment as Hereford’s new manager, the former striker has decided to renew the partnership with his former Vale teammate.

The second-highest scorer in the history of the club with 107 goals, Foyle was signed for a then club record fee of £375,000 from Oxford United and was leading scorer in 1991-1992, 1993-1994 and 1998-1999.

He was also voted Player of the Year on two occasions and was a member of the Autoglass Trophy winning side and the 1993-1994 promotion team.

After retiring he became a coach and then had a three year spell as Port Vale manager.

Porter is in fourth place in the club’s all-time appearances list. He progressed through the junior ranks to make 447 appearances. Hugely popular with fans, he was a member of the 1988-1989 promotion side, the Autoglass Trophy winning side and captain for the Anglo-Italian Cup Final with Genoa. He also spent several years as a coach at Vale Park.

The pair will face another former Valiant player next season – as former midfielder Ian Bogie is currently the manager of Gateshead, who are also in the Conference National.

We wish both Martin and Andy the best of luck in their new roles.
