HEREFORD United players will be waiting anxiously for news on their back-wages after the club were given a Conference ultimatum on Saturday.

The league's annual meeting confirmed that they would accept United's continuing membership of the competition provided that certain conditions were met.

These were that there had to be proof today (Monday) that sufficient funds had to be cleared into United's bank account to settle football creditor debts - these include the players, former manager Martin Foyle, office staff and clubs from whom United loaned players during the past season.

And then all of these outstanding debts have to be settled in full by Thursday.

Similar conditions have been imposed on Salisbury City, who are also in the throes of a takeover.

United were represented at the Conference meeting by chairman David Keyte, club secretary Lee Symonds and Andrew Green, the accountant to new majority shareholder Tommy Agombar.

Agombar was at Edgar Street on Saturday when he spoke with fans and gave a TV interview to Central News.

Events at the club are expected to move forward quickly this week with pre-season training rumoured to be starting on Thursday.
