Last updated on .From the section Football
Ex-Hereford United defender Tony James, one of the mainstays of the disbanded old club, has returned to Edgar Street to join the reformed Hereford FC.
The 36-year-old played the majority of his career for the Bulls before joining Weymouth, then moving to Burton Albion.
"Tony James will be a great signing," boss Peter Beadle said. "His experience and character will be hugely influential in the upcoming seasons."
Beadle has brought back three other players with past Bulls connections.

|Hereford FC, the club created following Hereford United's collapse in December 2014, will start life next season in the Midland League - the ninth tier of English football.|
Goalkeeper Harvey Rivers, who started out with Hereford United before doing his scholarship at Cheltenham Town, has returned to Edgar Street after spending last season as second-choice at Gloucester City.
Dylan Bonella, captain of the club's successful youth team under Beadle in 2013-14, also returns after playing last season for Frome in the Southern League Premier.
Max Kontic-Coveney, who was part of that same youth team, has also been signed up, having finished last season a division lower down with Southern League Division One South & West side Evesham United.
