Transfer Deadline Has Gone

Hereford FC will be unable to bring any more players into the club this season as the transfer deadline was last Thursday.

The exception to this rule would be 'emergency cover' for example if all goalkeepers were injuried. And even that would have to be 'sanctioned' by the League.

A couple of other points from the League. Firstly they have confirmed that there was absolutely no chance that the game between Alvechurch and Hereford could have been played on May 4th.

"The rules from the FA are quite clear," said Midland League press officer Gary Hazelhurst.

"We can extend as long as the games do not have a bearing on promotion or relegation.  On that basis 4th May was never going to happen."

Secondly the FA told the Midland League late yesterday (Wednesday) that 'over 14000' tickets have been sold to Hereford supporters for the FA Vase final. 

Thirdly the top Midland Premier League goalscorers:

John Mills   Hereford 44
Craig Bannister   Sporting Khalsa 39
Lei Brown   Highgate United 28
Jamie Cuss  Westfields 27

Finally the date for the Midland League Cup Final is still unknown.

"Talks are ongoing regarding both the date and venue.  At the moment it looks likely to be week commencing 9th May."

Which should Hereford reach the final could fit in well between the HFA County Cup final on May 2nd and the FA Vase final on May 22nd.
