Bulls 'advisor' Joel Nathan claims today a major sponsorship deal will see Hereford United avoid a CVA deal.
He told the Hereford Times: “We are negotiating at the moment with a major blue-chip company to sponsor this club which, if it comes off, means we would not go into a CVA.”
Fellow 'advisor' Andy Lonsdale also told the Hereford Times that football creditors would be paid today: "Football creditors will be paid today and everything will be in place for the game against St Neots Town on August 9. We were always going to pay the football creditors.
“We have sat down and had an overlook of everything. We had two very big sponsors who were going to come in and invest in the club for a great deal of money.
“But because of the bad publicity through the Hereford Times, Bulls Banter and Bulls News they decided to pull out. There’s no point in coming out and talking until you are 100 per cent ready to do so.
“I am not a great believer in giving lip service just for the sake of it. You have to get all your facts straight and your ducks in a row before you come out and talk because you get shot down."
Lonsdale, who told fans on June 21st that football creditors had already been paid, had previously assured Bedfont & Feltham supporters that he was not leaving the club prior to his departure, and has been accused of lying by several former staff members at Edgar Street.
