Hereford Utd wound up in High Court

Jan 2nd, 2015

19th December 2014: Hereford Utd Football Club were wound up in the High Court after the current owner turned up late for a the hearing and failed to convince the judge he had sufficient funds in the bank to cover the club’s debts.

The club, who were formed in 1924 and elected to the League in 1972, had their ups and downs before they played their last match against in the Southern League Premier against Dunstable (a 1-1 draw). Their most memorable highlight is perhaps that Ronnie Radford 35yd stunner against Newcastle Utd in the FA Cup which they went on to win 2-1 courtesy of Ricky George’s winner.

Herefordshire Council said: “As Hereford United Football Club (1939) Limited is in the process of being wound up and a liquidator will be appointed, this action triggers the council’s right as landlord to forfeit the leases. Once the ground has been secured, the council will consider the appropriate process for procuring a new tenant to ensure the continuation of football.”
