HEREFORD MP Jesse Norman has this morning said that it is now time for action to try and resolve the crisis engulfing Hereford United - adding that majority shareholder Tommy Agombar even cut him off when he tried to call him.

United's advisor Andy Lonsdale yesterday told the Hereford Times that Mr Norman should "buy into the ethos" of the club's new regime and emailed him three weeks ago, but is still awaiting a reply.

"In fact I gave Mr Agombar a courtesy call soon after his investment was announced and was cut off - that spoke for itself," said Mr Norman.

"I am a member of Hereford United Supporters Trust (HUST) and I support the HUST boycott 100%.

"It appears that Messrs Lonsdale and Agombar have made endless promises which they have failed to discharge.

"They failed to pay all local creditors, as they promised.

"They failed to post the bond required to keep Hereford United in the Conference, as they promised.

"They appear to have moved Mr Agombar on and off the directors' register in order to bypass the rules.

"They have not published the result of Mr Agombar's "fit and proper" test, or authorised the FA to reveal the outcome.

"Mr Lonsdale wants to have a conversation.

"But this isn't a time for talk, it's a time for action.

"We must do everything we can to safeguard the future of football in Herefordshire.

"Mr Lonsdale and Mr Agombar need to engage with HUST, hold an open meeting and address the fans' concerns in full. Then perhaps we can‎ talk."
