Martin Watson has provided an update from Edgar Street. This update follows the news earlier in the week that the club would enter a period of ‘hibernation’ due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

From the official website:

With the FA requiring the position of Club Secretary to be maintained, Martin Watson has continued to operate in the backround at minimal cost to the Club to liaise with the National League, other Clubs, the FA, and Herefordshire FA over various matters to conclude the current season.

The Board have asked Martin to provide limited updates to the Club’s social media, to fulfill online Club Shop orders, and to act as caretaker of our Edgar Street stadium.

The online Club Shop remains open and orders are being fulfilled on a twice-weekly basis. There are a number of items on special offer with details on the website home page.

On the football side of things we can confirm that a vote is taking place of Clubs to immediately end the 2019/20 season in the National League. If the vote is successful no further matches will be played in the regular season.

Clubs will then have a further vote to decide on exactly how the season ends, with the options for that still being decided by the League and FA.

As a Club we are voting for the season to end immediately. With the current season potentially running to September, and no guarantees on being able to play in front of spectators during that time, there are far too many financial uncertainties to consider carrying on the season.

Once the result of the vote is known the Board will provide an update as to the next steps.
