MARK Ellis, a football agent and scout, has been leading this week’s pre-season training at Hereford United.

Ellis told the Hereford Times he ‘knows the best players’ and had helped AFC Bournemouth, Sheffield Wednesday and QPR to promotion in the last four years.

"Anyone you speak to in the right circles in football, will only say positive things about me," he claimed.

Middlesbrough today confirmed that Ellis worked on a ‘part-time basis covering some games for the club in France and Belgium for a few months’.

Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed that Ellis ‘worked on a part-time scouting basis on an expenses-only deal under then-manager Gary Megson’..

AFC Bournemouth told the Hereford Times: "Mark Ellis has worked for AFC Bournemouth at different points over the last few years. He has mainly been utilised in scouting roles."

Ellis works for Crystalsportsmanagement in Hornchurch.

He is recruiting players for Hereford United, who are under the new ownership of Tommy Agombar, and were expelled from the Conference on Tuesday.

I have been saying for days that this guys claimed Cv won't stand scrutiny. If you search his name alongside the name of ALL of the major clubs he claims to have worked for you get eithe nothing or links to his own publicity.

I have personally put out feelers at Arsenal as well as general appeals to fans of many clubs on Social media and ABSOLUTELY NOBODY has been able to say to me "yes he worked for us"

I was planning on confronting Mr Ellis with my findings at Mondays fans forum but as this is cancelled that opportunity has gone so well done for bringing this out.

The whole thing is just one big 'Con' to get there hands on the leases
The council is the key, do not under any means give theses 'con men' those leases!!!!
It's all about 'land' and being next to the new shopping complex it's probably worth thousands them
They've already forced and bullied employees into quiting there jobs by not paying them and yet at the same time employing there own people to do the same job??.?
The relegation was 'planned' breaking conference rules was planned
I am convinced by this

FAO Herefordshire Council: You should not be giving these conmen the time of day. You should treat them with the contempt they deserve. They come up from London taking us all for complete mugs and think we are going to roll over and give them our sacred Edgar Street to build their grubby flats on. Please send them packing when they ask for lease reassignment.
