Hereford United Supporters Trust members will consider boycotting the troubled Edgar Street club
HEREFORD United Supporters Trust (HUST) members could be boycotting all activities at Edgar Street.
HUST are lobbying members because they claim the new Hereford United owner, Tommy Agombar, has ‘repeatedly failed to meet promises’.
Members will be asked to vote by e-mail before 11pm next Tuesday.
A statement from HUST says: “Tommy Agombar has repeatedly failed to meet promises to pay former players and staff from last season, debts to the council, and the settlement of outstanding winding-up proceedings.
"The failure to pay football creditors has adversely affected the club significantly, seeing the club drop two divisions and face the potential of further sanctions in the Southern League Premier Division.
"It has also had substantial impact on the lives and families of those former staff members left without payment."
The HUST statement adds: "The flow of information from Edgar Street officials has all but ceased, with the news of Monday’s High Court hearing coming from officials of Grays Athletic rather than official club channels.
“This underlines how badly supporters have been treated over the past month.
“The current situation cannot continue and, having repeatedly called on Mr Agombar to pay these debts and restore some dignity to the club, we now have little choice but to poll our members on a boycott of Hereford United (1939) Ltd.
“The boycott would be on all activities of the club including home matches, merchandise, and sponsorship."
The question that HUST will be putting before their members:
“Do you agree that HUST should recommend to its membership to boycott Hereford United (1939) Ltd until all footballing debts, council debts, and outstanding winding up petitions are settled in full?”
