CHIPPENHAM Town and Frome Town will face non-league heavyweights Hereford United next season after the Bulls position in the Southern League Premier Division was ratified.

Hereford were given permission to join the Southern League last week, subject to conditions, following their ejection from the Football Conference after the club missed their latest deadline to pay football creditors.

That move was confirmed today, a Southern League statement saying: "Following discussions with Hereford United Football Club regarding their participation in the Southern Football League for the 2014/15 season, the league will accept their inclusion into the competition to play in its Premier Division, subject to the club meeting certain criteria within a time frame imposed by the league.''

The Bulls' Conference expulsion means Chester, relegated from the Conference on the final day of last season, will be reinstated and Hayes & Yeading United will not be relegated from the Conference South into the top flight of the Southern League.
