With the future of the National League season still in the balance as clubs vote on whether to continue the season or to declare it null and void, Tuesday evening’s trip to Hereford is scheduled to go ahead with both clubs confirming their intention to fulfil the fixture ahead of any announcement by the National League board.
Saints are on an unbeaten run of nine National League North games and are currently fourth in the league table. Hereford are 15th having played 12 games. Only Darlington have played fewer league matches.
The Bulls are in good form taking 8 points from their last 4 fixtures with just one defeat in 7 league games. Josh Gowling’s side beat AFC Fylde and Kidderminster Harriers in their latest home games.
They are also going well in the FA Trophy reaching the quarter-final stage with a home win over Leamington. They are due to face Aldershot in the next round, The Shots having gained a bye due to Covid in the Chesterfield camp. Saints went out of the competition of course in a penalty shoot-out at Chesterfield.
Supporters can follow Tuesday night’s action via a live streaming match pass available via the Hereford FC website.
The season is currently very much a case of day-by-day and one match at a time ahead of the outcome of the vote. Even then, what happens next is likely to take some time to unravel unless it is a clear-cut decision to declare the season null and void.
The situation is further complicated by the rules governing a Special Resolution that only allocate 8 votes to the 44 National League North and National League South clubs.
We will continue to keep everyone updated via the website and social media as events continue to unfold over the coming days with the outcome of the 66 club vote expected any day even though clubs have until the end of the month to cast their votes.
If the season is to be completed, then over the coming weeks and months the club will face a serious financial situation and your support will be crucial in helping the club get through the challenges ahead.
