The following has been published on the Council website:
Herefordshire Council is very sorry to hear the news about Hereford United Football Club; it is a significant blow to the city and to the county as a whole.
We are committed to ensuring that Edgar Street continues to be available as a home for football. We have recently renegotiated all of the leases, which continue to be held by the club, to ensure that money generated from redevelopment opportunities at the ground will be invested back into the facilities.
We remain open to discussions with any potential investors who, like us, wish to see football remain at Edgar Street.
Councillor Tony Johnson
Leader of Herefordshire Council
