The HUST board continue to monitor the statements from Hereford United regarding payment of the debt in reference to the boycott that our members voted to implement.
In the past week a variety of statements have assured supporters that football creditors, the Council debts, and the Winding-Up petition will be settled. With those debts still currently outstanding, and the club saying it has the funds to meet the debts, it is entirely at the club’s discretion to pay those sums and meet the terms to end the official boycott. At that point, the HUST board would be happy to enter into discussions with the club over the future of football at Edgar Street.
While the HUST Fans Team matches and protests organised by the Save1939 group have been praised by the Police for the exemplary behaviour of the fans in attendance, we note with sadness an incident at last night’s match at Edgar Street. We have been assured by a number of people who were protesting at last night’s game that they were not involved in the incident. We are aware that the club spent a substantial amount over the summer on a new CCTV system around Edgar Street and urge Hereford United to publish the images of the offenders so they can be identified by the fanbase.
