Today is a crucial day in the future of Hereford United.
The Bulls face a battle both on and off the pitch. A crucial three points against Grimsby and a substantial attendance can help preserve the Bulls’ current status.
Over 6,000 fans turned out six years ago to see the Bulls beat the Mariners in a celebration of promotion to League One. We’ve had some rough times since, the whole country has, but we now need the support of all Bulls fans and the wider community to see us through the current crisis.
Fans of Worcester, Luton, Crystal Palace, Brighton, West Brom, Ipswich, QPR, Shrewsbury, Wolves, Sheff Weds, and Wycombe have contributed over the last 24 hours to our fundraising page: http://www.gofundme.com/SaveHUFC and the legendary Jeff Stelling also contributed to the cause yesterday afternoon as a fan of a lower league club. The ‘football family’ has turned out in force over the last few days with national press attention now centered on our beloved club.
The game will be a celebration of the club, it’s 90 year history, and the ties that bring us all to the Edgar Street shrine every other week. The players have expressed their commitment to the cause, and we as fans will do the same.
HUST will have their usual membership table in the foyer of the VP Club from 1.30pm to 2.45pm for new memberships, merchandise sales, and any general queries. The Starlite Cafe is open from 9am for breakfasts, while there is a Fans March from the Victory pub at Noon and a bucket collection at Tesco’s Belmont during the morning. The March will arrive at the club at around 1pm in good time for the game, with the club offering £1 entry for Under 15’s for the match.
Enjoy the game!
