ALL of Hereford United’s football creditors will be paid before Monday, confirmed advisor Andy Lonsdale.
“We started paying them yesterday - about 10 or 12 - and the rest should be paid today as long as we have all the bank details and references,” said Lonsdale.
“We will pay today, tomorrow or Monday.
“The Southern League have been very good to us.
“We had to put up a bond to the Southern League and if we can’t pay the football creditors, why should we be allowed to play in the league?
“There are people coming out of the woodwork.
“David Keyte agreed to give all the first team a £500 bonus for when he couldn’t afford to pay the wages.
“We have to pick up the tab for that and we are looking into that.
“A lot of people did not have contracts.
"They showed David Keyte a lot of loyalty and they didn’t show us any – yet they still expect us to pay.
“They didn’t have a contract –a lot of people here only had verbal contracts.”
“We are doing everything by the book – as far as that is concerned.”
Lonsdale confirmed he’s resigned from his role at Bedfont and Feltham Football Club.
“I have had to resign from the club due to the Hereford fans which I was not really happy about,” he said.
“They got hold of the FA and said that I was involved with two clubs.
“Because I want to see Tommy Agombar see this through, I made my decision to resign.
“I had been there 17 years but, because of the fans’ hatred here, I have had to resign.
“ I am not very happy about that but I am not going to walk away from this club because I gave Tommy my word that I would help him.”
