PEGASUS JUNIORS vs HEREFORD UNITED SUPPORTERS TEAM
A team made up of supporters and former players representing the Hereford United Supporters Trust is continuing it’s alternative fixture list whilst an official boycott of Hereford United continues.
Members of the Hereford United Supporters Trust voted in favour of a boycott of the club following the take over by London based businessman Tommy Agombar.
Broken promises, secrecy and failure to meet numerous deadlines that resulted in The Bulls being thrown out of the Football Conference led to the boycott.
With less than five days to go until the Southern Premier season is set to start, the boycott is still in place.
However, the Supporters Trust Fan Team has continued to draw in supporters who are still seeking to show their support to Hereford United, but not the current owners.
Over 650 fans watched a supporters team play Ledbury Town over a week ago, and on Sunday over 800 fans flocked to Malvern Town to watch a Hereford United Supporters Trust team take on Worcester City Supporters Trust.
Tonight the Hereford United Fans Team will take on Hereford based side Pegasus Juniors at Old School Lane in a 7:30pm KO.
Pegasus themselves turned down a friendly against Hereford United 1939 Ltd due to concerns regarding the current owners at Edgar Street.
