HEREFORD United chairman David Keyte says there will soon be family deals to attract fans to Edgar Street.

The cash-strapped club want to increase their home gates by between 300 and 400 fans per match.

“That sort of increased figure would help us increase our gate money by £3,000 and £4,000 a game,” said chairman Keyte.

“We will be using part of the Blackfriars End for a parents and children deal at matches when the away following is not expected to be large,” he said.

The details have not been finalised but Keyte was confident the scheme would soon be implemented by the club.

Keyte also said there has been 'renewed interest' in the development of the Blackfriars End of the ground.

"We can see some progress next to the football club, particularly as the cattle market seems to be moving forward," he said.

"We have had some interest very recently and there seems to be renewed interest in our plans for the Blackfriars End.

"It seems that, by perhaps having an established name next door, it's a more attractive location."
