Geoff Bricknell says Hereford United needs show of support, not criticism.

NOW that the dust has settled on another season, perhaps it is time to take a more balanced view on what has happened over the past four years.

As a regular supporter for over 50 years, I, along with all true fans, have experienced so many ups and downs that recent happenings are nothing new. The high points are rare but all the more enjoyable when they occur.

What we must not do is personalise our recent lack of success into unbalanced criticism of the current chairman of directors. David Keyte and initially Tim Russon were prepared to put time and money into the club. Now we can perhaps wonder whether their initial investment was wise (I am sure they have), but what we cannot do is criticise their commitment and love of the club. Which one of us could have done a better job? Who else would have been prepared to put the level of investment necessary into the club?

I would like to thank David Keyte and his very hardworking board of directors for all they have done and are continuing to do for the club that I love. We should all continue to support them (as the various supporters' groups are doing at present), and do what we can to ensure football continues at Edgar Street.
