Hereford United have been expelled from the Conference Premier after missing their latest deadline to pay football creditors.

They have debts of around £150,000 and also have a tax demand hanging over them as well as a winding-up order brought by former boss Martin Foyle.

Hereford failed to meet a 5pm deadline on June 5 to pay football creditors, and were threatened with expulsion, subject to a Conference board vote.

The following day they met with the Conference board and were given a new deadline of June 7 at 10am before the deadline was moved to June 9 and then June 12.

The Bulls only survived last season on goal difference after finishing level on points with Chester, who now look likely to be reinstated into the division.
