HEREFORD United are NOT advertising for players on the internet.

An urgent appeal for players, claiming to be from Hereford United, was placed on a website called UK Football Finder.

But this morning, a club official said the advert had not come from Jon Taylor and had not been produced with the knowledge of anyone at Hereford United.

The online posting, which claimed to be from Hereford United, read: "Southern Premier League side Hereford United is urgently looking for young pro and semi-pro players with desires to make it big in football.

"Please email your CV's to marked FAO Jon Taylor (1st Team Manager) Remember, you will HAVE to be able to play at Southern Premier League level.

"Open trials, training matches and pre-season games are currently underway - so don't delay get in touch!"
