HEREFORD United Supporters' Trust (HUST) have had their deadline extended to reach their 50 per cent share target in Hereford FC.

HUST currently own 210,000 (42 per cent) shares in Hereford FC, and have the option to purchase up to 289,000 (50 per cent).

Hereford FC state that the original deadline for them to meet 289,000 was set to expire on March 27.

The club's website said: "With HUST needing a further eight per cent (£79,000) to reach their target of 50 per cent, the current board of directors have made the decision to extend the timeframe for an additional 12-month period."

Hereford FC Chairman, Andrew Graham added: “We’re very sympathetic to HUST's situation, they’ve done extremely well to purchase the amount that they have so far, but with attendances having dropped this season and taking into account other factors, we are more than happy to extend the deadline.”
