HEREFORD FC's chairman has issued a stern warning to fans after disorder in the city's streets after Good Friday's match.

Jon Hale, who is in his second stint at the Edgar Street club, spoke out after the disorder in Widemarsh Street was caught on camera.

The video showed fans clashing outside Garrick car park after the final whistle on Friday.

Hereford beat AFC Telford United 1-0, keeping their hopes of securing a play-off position alive.

But the video shows Telford fans in the middle of the road while they shouted abuse at Hereford fans.

Police were at the scene, with a widespread presence throughout the afternoon.

The road was blocked for a time, with a police dog also filmed as the ugly scenes unfolded.

There were also reports of arrests, but West Mercia Police has currently made no comment.

But Bulls chairman Jon Hale said any Hereford fan found to be involved in football violence would get a lengthy ban.

He said: "On a day that saw us welcome two junior football sides and see a great turnout of families for the game, it was disappointing to hear of trouble after the game.

"Whilst early reports suggest that there was minimal involvement from Hereford fans, it is worth repeating that we will not tolerate any antisocial behaviour and certainly no violence here at Edgar Street.

"Anyone found to be involved in football violence will receive lengthy bans."

In a message on the club's official website, Hale also praised fans for their support.

"I want to thank our supporters for turning out in great numbers on Good Friday at a sun-drenched Edgar Street to give their vociferous backing as the players deservedly got the win over Telford," he added.

"The Meadow End was in fine voice, and the support around the ground was as loud as it has been for some time; there is no doubt it gave the players – and management – a great lift."
