Hereford United let suspended defender Byron Anthony go

Byron Anthony

Hereford United have released defender Byron Anthony following his red card in Saturday's 4-2 home win over Cambridge.

After signing the 27-year-old former Cardiff City and Bristol Rovers stopper was playing only his second game.

But, after being handed an automatic three-match suspension following his sending-off at Edgar Street, the Bulls have opted to cancel his contract.

Anthony's departure will free up their options to bring in a loan replacement.

The former Wales Under-21 international first joined Hereford on loan last February.

The relegated Bulls were unbeaten in their first four games in the Blue Square Bet Premier, picking up 10 points.

But Tuesday night's 2-1 home derby defeat by Forest Green means that Martin Foyle's men have now won just twice in their last seven games to slip to 11th in the table.
