COMPANIES House has confirmed that Ms Elke Thuerlings and John Harold Edwards have been appointed as Hereford United's new directors.

Press Officer Jo Johnstone told the Hereford Times that the duo were appointed at the club today (Thursday).

Ms Johnson also confirmed that David Keyte's appointment as a director was terminated yesterday (Wednesday), while Tommy Agombar is still not listed as a director.

Hereford United face a winding-up order at the High Court next Monday.

The petition has been brough against the club by former manager Martin Foyle.

The new Southport boss claims he had previously negotiated an agreed settlement with United, but it was later withdrawn by Edgar Street chiefs.
