Well that seems to be it then, the fans rally round, even children giving up pocket money to help save the club financially. Its a shame that the players couldn't put the same effort in on the pitch, but then they didn't get paid and are obviously talentless. Well Mr Keyte your dream of being famously linked to HUFC is about to come true but not in the way you thought eh!. The bloke that killed the club.

Even a win against Alfreton on Monday and a win against Aldershot may now not be enough to keep us up. We are totally reliant on other teams losing points. Sadly, I can't see where our goals can come from. We have failed to score in our last six home games.
This is a very sad state of affairs.
