HEREFORD United Supporters Trust (HUST) has written the club's chairman to requesting a board statement to 'alleviate supporter concerns'.

The trust which is currently fundraising to buy 50 per cent of the club's shares and has three nominated directors on the Hereford FC Board (HNDs)

“These are worrying times,” said HUST Chairman Richard Tomkins.

“A number of members have been in touch to express their thoughts and, of course, the Trust board shares and understands members concerns.”

HUST has spoken with its nominated directors to try to understand recent events more fully.

Trust Vice Chair Joanie Roberts said: “We fully appreciate our HNDs are constrained by the rules that govern the club and as a result HUST is taking advice as to how dialogue and communication between the club and the Trust can be improved.

"Members need more information and we are looking at how we can improve and make this happen.”

Tomkins has written to Hereford FC Chairman, Ken Kinnersley, requesting a board statement.

Tomkins added: “I understand there’s an Hereford FC board next week and it has become prudent for the club to alleviate supporter concerns.

I don’t think it’s a premature reaction any more. Additionally HUST will be presenting a number of resolutions to the club's AGM in December, including a motion for a fourth director.

“The supporters deserve equal representation on the club's board.

"It will be interesting to see how the resolution is received at the AGM. Following on, we will hold a Special Meeting of members to review and will advise on that in due course."

The HUST board would like to reiterate they retain full confidence in their HNDs and encourage all supporters to get behind the team and all volunteers at all levels of the club.
