THE future of Hereford United Football Club is hanging by a thread.

The Southern League had given United until today to pay all outstanding football creditors, the Hereford Times understands.

But it is rumoured the deadline for payments has been extended until tomorrow.

The payment of football creditors to allow competitive football to be played at Edgar Street next season is vital to the planned Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) proposal to creditors.

The Football Association are understood to be monitoring events at Edgar Street.

And the Southern League are set to issue a statement on Hereford United’s situation.

United are due to be in the Royal Courts of Justice in London on Monday to defend a winding-up petition and present a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) proposal.

United advisor Joel Nathan has not responded to today's calls from the Hereford Times.
