A HEREFORD FC director has stepped down from the board with immediate effect.

Mick Merrick, one of the three Hereford United Supporters Trust (HUST) nominated directors, has resigned. He's the ninth director to do so since the club was formed.

The board, in a short statement on the official website, said they would like to thank Merrick for his commitment and involvement over the last 15 months and wished him well for the future.

Left on the board are chairman Andrew Graham, Helen Byard, Paul Quarrell, George Webb and HUST nominated directors Tony Taylor and Peter Churchus.
