HEREFORD United chairman Andy Lonsdale insists ‘everything will continue as normal’ – despite a change of majority ownership for the club.

Tommy Agombar has sold his shares and debts in Hereford United to a ‘purchaser of distressed debts’, revealed insolvency practitioner Marc Landsman.

Lonsdale said the club would buy Agombar a season ticket so he could continue to watch the club.

Agombar revealed on Tuesday he wasn’t allowed to be involved in United because he did not pass the FA owners and directors test for club ownership.

Lonsdale told the Hereford Times this morning: “Everything will continue as normal – nothing has changed.

“We have got a large sponsor lined up if the CVA proposal goes through.

“It carries on in the same guise.

“Tommy is still going to support the club and we will be getting him a season ticket.”

Troubled Hereford United are around £1.4 in debt.

Hereford United’s creditors will be at the Starlite Rooms at 3.30pm today to vote on the CVA proposal to creditors.
