The third Hereford United Fans Forum of the season took place this evening near Ledbury.
Below are some of the main points:
Ainsworth - Hereford United offered him everything he wanted but he has decided to join Shrewsbury. Manager Simon Davey said that he had a text from Lee Clark, Huddersfield manager, confirming this.
On trial Samba Kanoute - Davey said he has potential, sees him as back up but could flourish. He will sign a contract.
Leases - Still in talks with the Richardsons. They no longer want to be attached to the club so Tim Russon said hopefully a deal will be done in the next 2-3 weeks. Just in talks over the exact figure to buy out the leases.
"The Chairman, David Keyte, and I have been working on a deal for the last month and the aim is to give Hereford a big future at Edgar Street. It’s vital we do things right and make sure the plans we put in place now will benefit the club and the community for many, many years to come," explained Russon.
New winger - Medical Thursday, the player is at a club but no fee will be paid. He was signed for a fee though. Davey said this player would make an impact on the starting 11.
Centre of excellence - Meeting next Tuesday to apply for the licence.
Goalkeeping coach - Job has been offered to an un-named person.
Chief scout - Club has employed a chief scout who worked with Davey at Barnsley.
Groundsman - Looking into the option of a full time groundsman being employed.
Around 30 people are believed to have been present at the Eastnor venue.
