Hereford Playing Record Wiped
The playing record for Hereford United this season has been expunged with immediate effect by the Southern League’s board of directors. The news comes after the bulls were wound up in the High Court on December 19.
A statement from the Southern League said: “Following the winding up of Hereford United (1939) Ltd in the High Court on 19th December and confirmation received by the Southern League that no legal processes to appeal the order will be forthcoming, the Board of Directors has unanimously agreed that the club’s playing record for the current season is expunged with immediate effect,”
“The Premier Division table has been adjusted accordingly. Any further matters relating to Hereford United (1939) Ltd will be dealt with by the office of the Official Receiver.”
Having been expelled from the Conference in June over their unpaid debts, Hereford United were suspended from all football last month, and just 9 days later the club were wound up by a High Court judge. The winding-up petition was brought by HM Revenue and Customs, which is thought to be owed £116,000.
