FORMER Hereford United manager Martin Foyle has issued a winding-up petition against the club.

The petition, which can be viewed here on the London Gazette website, will be heard at the Royal Courts of Justics in London at 10.30am on Monday, June 2.

Foyle, who left United in March, claims that he was a creditor of the company.

He issued the notice on April 15.

Anyone who wishes to appear at the hearing must give notice of their intention by May 30.

Foyle was named as Southport's new manager earlier this month.

Nice.
He was a rubbish manager, tactically inept and failed to get the players to play for him, now he wants to give the club a final kick in the teeth with this action.
Good Luck Southport, you're welcome to this idiot.

This is very sad....do HUFC still owe him any money? if not then for what reason would he want to see the club go to the wall???
This sounds like a very selfish act to me!

Quite agree with Mizza. Some strange tactical moves at times by Foyle. It was only after Peter Beadle took charge that we saw a more positive stance, particularly the introduction of the youth team players on a regular basis. Now Peter Beadle has also left - a big loss, in my opinion. Having seen the youth team play, it is easy to see why he is highly regarded as a coach. There were super young players in that team. What a loss!
Martin Foyle was in charge at a time of great financial uncertainty and pleaded with fans to support the players and club - especially difficult for players you were not being paid at times.
It seems rather sad that less than four weeks after leaving the club he asked a London solicitor to issue a 'winding-up order'.
The order states that he is a creditor of the club, but I wonder if he would have asked his former players who were not being paid to copy his actions?
Bitterness? Acrimony? or just using due legal process to acquire what he is owed? Others must make up their own minds.

I must admit I was a bit cross when I posted the comment above.
My old chum Littlewhitebull has said it in more measured tones.

While Foyle was in charge there were players not paid for months, indeed he wasn't paid for months himself and I don't know whether he is just following legal advice here.
The facts remain though that his tactics were inept and he failed to adapt during games. He stuck with players who were not performing week in week out and there seemed to be no plan. The playing style and setup was rather defensive and dull.

It is a big shame we are to lose the man in the red cap. He introduced players who made a difference and changed the setup and we looked like a different team.
Most importantly though he occasionally waved to the Meadow end.
I would have loved to have seen him work with a budget and have more time to implement his own vision for the team.
