Former Wales international Steve Jenkins has left Merthyr Town to join Hereford as their assistant manager.

He will be reunited with his former Newport County boss Peter Beadle, currently in charge of the Bulls in the Southern League South and West.

Jenkins spent two seasons with Evo-Stick Southern League Premier Division side Merthyr.

His assistant there, Gavin Williams, will take over at Penydarren Park after the club finished tenth last term.

Former Swansea defender Jenkins led Merthyr to the Southern League, Division One promotion in 2014-15 and the Martyrs won the Red Insure Cup last season.

Jenkins previously managed Monmouth.
