Ex-Hereford Boss Issues Bulls Winding Up Petition

May 23 2014

Martin Foyle, the former Hereford United manager Martin Foyle has issued a winding-up petition against his old club.  He filed the petition on Thursday, and the court date for the hearing has been set for Monday, 2 June.


It is reported that Hereford are currently ion around £225,000 worth of debt. A club statement read:

“The current winding up petition served by ex-manager Martin Foyle has not come unexpectedly, the debt owed to Martin is included, and will be fully covered”

The indebtedness reportedly includes an £80,000 tax bill to HMRC, about £30,000 owed to other clubs for loan players and outstanding wages to a number of Bulls players.

Hereford’s Previous Winding Up Petition

This isn’t the first time Hereford have received a winding up petition. HMRC issued a petition against the club in late March over an unpaid  tax demand of £78,000.

The petition was heard at the High Court of Justice on 7 April. However, Hereford United were granted a seven-day adjournment by the High Court to settle their outstanding tax bill and they managed to pay the full sum of, £78,000 to HMRC.
