More from the Press Conference

One of the topics covered in yesterday's press conference at Edgar Street was the hope of chairman David Keyte to get the local community behind Hereford United. He said he had met chief club sponsors Cargill with that aim.

"I've had a very positive first meeting with Cargill, our main sponsors," said Keyte. "A community feel to the discussion. A lot of synergy there.

"We want to take Hereford United back to the people of Herefordshire and the surrounding counties.

"If I'm honest over the last three weeks has proved that to be more right than I realised as there does seem to be a little bit of a gap over the past two or three years for whatever reason.

"We're past that now. We're on the right track.

"Even to the extent that, don't pin me to this, perhaps that new grandstand should be a family stand. Mums and Dads come along with their little ones.

"We've covered a hell of a lot of ground during our first three weeks."

Vice-chairman Tim Russon added that he hoped supporters could get closer to the club and the manager, Simon Davey, who is a real personality

"It's important that the manager can go out and talk to the people, talk to the fans with the aim of identifying with them.

"We'll be having a fans forum before the start of the season.

"We want to open the doors and talk to people."
