Hereford United sports therapist Jonny Evans tonight bids emotional farewell to club he loves
SPORTS therapist Jonny Evans has tonight bid an emotional farewell to Hereford United.
The life-long Bulls’ fan revealed he had not been paid for four months.
He is the second departure today – and follows kit-man Roger Lloyd out of the Edgar Street door.
Former Banbury assistant-manager Jon Taylor, football agent Mark Ellis and video analyst Neil Phelps are the only backroom staff remaining at United.
Taylor has been told he is to be the next United manager.
“Roger and I had two meetings booked with Tommy Agombar this week about contracts but he cancelled on us twice,” Evans told the Hereford Times tonight.
He had arranged to meet Agombar at the club today to discuss a new contract and to find out when he would be paid outstanding wages.
But he said: “Roger Lloyd and I decided that was the final straw and we have left the club.
“Jon Taylor then rang us and told us that Tommy Agombar was not going to offer us a contract.”
Evans has been a popular figure in the United dressing room.
“It’s a real shame because Roger and I would have stayed on had we been paid,” said Evans.
“I have not been paid by Hereford United for four months.
“I hope I will get the money I am owed because it’s desperate times.”
