Clarification Of Aims From Supporters Team
The following has been released by the Hereford United Supporters Team this evening.
We’ve read a few comments recently that are suggesting that the Supporters Team is the start of a phoenix Hereford United.
This is not true.
The Supporters Team has been running for a number of years, with games against the likes of Farnborough, Stevenage, Morecambe, Barnet and Shrewsbury Town amongst others, played from the early to mid 2000s onwards, right up until as recently as last season.
This team is the continuation of that, and contains many of the original supporters within the squad.
In December last year the Supporters Team was taken under the wing of the Hereford United Supporters Trust, and played a double-header against Kidderminster during the Christmas fixtures last season.
Standing under the Hereford United Supporters Trust umbrella, the Supporters Team backs the current boycott towards the club, and with the current feeling amongst a wide cross section of Hereford fans it was felt that the Supporters Team could try and come up with an ‘alternative fixture list’ so that Hereford fans could continue to support a team that they felt a connection to.
Supporters Team secretary Chris Oleksy has done a lot of work in managing to sign up former players and management who have shown their support to the fans during this difficult time. We have also been lucky to receive the time and support of former staff who have been forced to depart Edgar Street recently through no fault of their own.
That support, and the support shown from other clubs not only locally, but also from further afield is much appreciated.
We look forward to celebrating the fantastic support that Hereford United boasts, starting with the game against Ledbury Town tomorrow.
