HUST Board vacancies

It is essential that if we are to have a strong HFC then we need to have a strong and organised Supporters Trust. Recent appeals for help have brought forward some willing volunteers and these will be co-opted onto the Board at the August monthly meeting. This will still leave some important posts to fill and your help and enthusiasm in putting yourself forward would be appreciated.

The HUST Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday, 17th September 2015 and nomination forms need to be in by the 3rd September 2015, together with a brief c.v. and a photograph if possible.

For further information please contact HUST Chairman Chris Williams on chairman@hufctrust.co.uk

Membership Renewals

These are due from September 2015 but you can either join or renew now and your membership will run through to the AGM in September 2016. Membership is £10 for adults and £1 for juniors and can be made online via Paypal or by cheque to HUST.

Full details are on the HUST website so please take the time to show your ongoing support.

HUST has already purchased £25,000 of shares in Hereford FC thanks to your generous help and we intend to increase this to £50,000 by the end of 2015.

HUST commemorative share certificates

The frames and the certificates have now been received and we will start issuing them once the dust has settled after the Dunkirk, Stourport Swifts and Highgate games. Treasurer, Mike Langford has a long list of names but if you have donated a minimum of £50 either in one sum or in instalments, could you make contact with him on treasurer@hufctrust.co.uk so that Mike can ensure you are on his list. Please could you also confirm the exact name you want on the certificate. The response has been tremendous and shows the excitement and enthusiasm for our new club.

It is not too late to help by donating and details are on the HUST website. Every pound donated will go towards HUST’s share purchase in your Football Club.

50/50 Draw Tickets

On match days please do invest a £1 and buy a 50/50 Ticket where the winning number is drawn at half time. Half the monies collected go to HUST towards share purchase, the rest into the prize fund. We have a willing and enthusiastic band of sellers encouraging you to part with your money but a few more helpers would be welcomed so that we can maximize the important income this produces. Ideally we would like to have a long list of volunteers so that sellers can be put on a rota, the more the merrier!

If you would like to help on home match days between 1.30pm and 2.50pm, as we don’t want anyone missing the action on the pitch, then please contact Mike Langford at treasurer@hufctrust.co.uk

Prize Bull Lottery

The jackpot continues to rollover and is now £3,600 for anyone who can pick the 4 numbers drawn each Monday evening. We have “bookie tickets” on order which will shortly allow you to purchase tickets from nominated agents but a sure way to ensure that you support HUST is to set up a standing order either from your bank or via Paypal. The cost is £4.33 per calendar month or you can increase your chances of winning with an “any 4 from 5” option at £21.65 per month. Supporting the fund raising activities of HUST in turn supports Hereford FC so please do join with the chance of winning a large lump sum!

Fans Forum

It is our intention to try and organize a Fans Forum with guests before the AGM. Details will be posted on Bulls News, the HUST website and within the match day programme once a suitable date has been agreed.
