The Last Days of Hereford United

This is grassroots football in the Year of Our Lord 2014.

Hopefully something emerges from this (quite literal) wreckage (AFC Hereford United or whatever), but this depressing tale deserves as much attention as possible. What has happened to Hereford United is particularly grotesque, but it is not really unusual. If the highest tiers of the sport attract Arab sheikhs, Russian oligarchs and American financiers, lower down their place is increasingly filled by scum of a different and more directly malign sort. Hereford’s last chairman was literally a convicted fly tipper for God’s sake.
