HOME Office figures proved Hereford United had a good season on and off the pitch last year.

Data published this week states that not a single supporter was made the subject of a banning order in the year that the Bulls returned to the Football League.

But the club still has 19 "followers" who remain on the list of shame, having been before the courts in previous seasons.

The figure is the joint eighth highest in League Two and puts Hereford United ahead of local rivals Bristol Rovers and Shrewsbury Town.

And the number of arrests at United games last year also proves there is still work to be done.

Seven supporters were arrested, all at away games, for public disorder, breach of the peace and alcohol offences.

The number, which rose from three arrests in the 2004-5 season, was the third highest among clubs in the Conference last year.
