The Hereford United Supporters Trust (HUST) is saddened and bitterly disappointed at the winding up of Hereford United (1939) Ltd at the Court today.
The decision has been made by the Judge after a lengthy list of false promises from a series of majority shareholders regarding substantial investment into the club.
While a few individuals have overseen the rapid downfall of a 90 year old club, it will be the thousands of supporters that will again be a victim of the mismanagement that is so often rife in football. However Hereford United is the supporters that have had the club at their hearts, in many cases for generations of their families, and the spirit of the club will live on through each and every one of us.
The best course of action now is to channel the spirit of the fans and the community into a new club playing at Edgar Street.
As has already been documented, a plan is in place to make this happen and we are putting this plan into motion with immediate effect. Our principle objective at the moment is to secure the use of Edgar Street, while we are also preparing to speak with the FA with regards registering a new club and securing a place in the pyramid for next season.
One thing is for sure – to be certain that the new club can begin at the highest level possible, we will need to demonstrate that all supporters are behind our plan. The best way supporters can do this is to join HUST and add their voice to ours.
