Hereford United manager Jamie Pitman has appointed Richard Sneekes as his new first-team coach.

Sneekes, 42, replaces Dave Kevan who has left Edgar Street to take up a post at Stoke City.

After his playing career ended in 2002, the former Dutch Under-21 international stayed in the Midlands and has recently been working at Tamworth's academy.

Sneekes started his career with Ajax before playing for both Bolton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion.
