Good afternoon. sunshine in again.

:00:16.:00:16.

Protestors have held a demonstration outside the grounds

:00:17.:00:18.

of Hereford United football club, asking fans to boycott

:00:19.:00:20.

Tommy Agombar has failed to deal with the club's debts as promised.

:00:21.:00:25.

The shortfall was part of the reason its now playing

:00:26.:00:28.

There was anger and distrust as many fans boycotted the first game. They

:00:29.:00:42.

claimed the new owners want to asset strip the club.

:00:43.:00:50.

We need honesty, accuracy and sense coming out.

:00:51.:00:54.

The truth is not much to ask for. Until we get a proper club, run

:00:55.:00:58.

properly again, we will be here. It is very frustrating

:00:59.:00:59.

not being inside. For those people to be

:01:00.:01:02.

outside, it is heartbreaking. Fans still came to watch.

:01:03.:01:06.

I don't want to protest outside, it's not earning any money.

:01:07.:01:08.

I've been a supporter since the 1960s.

This was the first match of the season.

:01:22.:01:24.

The club should have been playing in the conference league but their

:01:25.:01:28.

debts knocked them out of the game. Those debts were bought with

the assets. The new owner has insisted that he

:01:32.:01:34.

is paying the debts and saving the club.

:01:35.:01:43.

I love my football. I have come down here. I didn't know anything about

:01:44.:01:50.

leases, I came down to save this club.

:01:51.:01:52.

and saving the club. They should embrace Tommy

:01:53.:01:55.

and give them a chance. He has put a lot of money

:01:56.:01:57.

into the club. He could los that money.

:01:58.:02:00.

We want to preserve the history of the club and turn

:02:01.:02:02.

into a legacy for the future. But the money still is to be found

:02:03.:02:05.

and there is a creditors meeting this week.

:02:06.:02:07.

The owner says the land around the pitch may have to be developed.

:02:08.:02:10.

They say they will be trying to save the club.

:02:37.:02:39.
