HEREFORD United have been given until Thursday to save their Conference status.

On Friday fans were living on a knife edge waiting to hear the decison of the Conference board following a crunch meeting at Celtic Manor Hotel, Newport.

Now Hereford have been told that they must pay all their football creditors by Thursday.

The Football Conference are due to hold their Annual General Meeting.

The cash-strapped clubhave been told that they can retain membership of the Conference for the 2014-15 season, assuming that they meet all their financial responsibilities to former manager Martin Foyle, their players and clubs to whom outstanding loan payments are due.

A statement said:"The board unanimously agreed that the club can retain membership of the limited company and their place in the Football Conference Premier Division providing financial payments are secured as directed by the board," it read.

"Failure to meet the financial conditions imposed, the club's membership would be revoked."

Hereford chairman Keyte and Green, the club's accountant, appeared before the Conference board at the meeting.

Keyte later commented on the club's website:"I'd like to thank the Conference Board members for their time and for an extremely fair and professional hearing. We accept their ruling and conditions fully."
