The Hereford United Supporters Trust (HUST) is deeply concerned that, with just a week until Hereford United return to Court for the 11th time this year, there has been little sign of the investment promised to the Court five weeks ago.
The Club Chairman, Andy Lonsdale, told supporters in a statement on November 7th to the club’s official site that “We as owners have secured investment”. On November 11th, a piece in the matchday programme stated “we have investment almost secured”, but there have been no further public statements since with the clock again ticking down.
HUST have repeatedly called on the club’s Directors and Owners to issue a clear public statement regarding the future of the club, a call reiterated when Andy Lonsdale rang HUST’s Vice Chairman on Thursday, and a call we again make today.
The whole fanbase of the club would dearly love the side they have supported through generations of their families to continue. This can only happen through substantial investment like the one continually promised by Andy Lonsdale.
We call on Andy Lonsdale, and the owners of the club, to urgently make a clear and concise statement on the ownership of the club and the pathway to clear debts in time for next Monday and move the club towards future prosperity.
