Hereford have said that the club are in ‘hibernation’, as all staff have now been furloughed.

With the COVID-19 pandemic leaving the season on hold, the Bulls are 15th in the National League North under interim boss Josh Gowling, following a campaign which has seen the departures of head coach Marc Richards and his successor Russell Slade.

Chairman Andrew Graham has explained: “Some members of staff have already been placed on the government ‘job retention scheme’ and at the end of this past week, all players and management staff also agreed to a 20 percent wage-cut, and will now also be placed on the government ‘furlough’ scheme.

“In a bid to help ensure that the club manages to get through this period of uncertainty, as of Monday (today), the remaining staff will also be placed on the government scheme. Therefore the club will move into a ‘hibernation’ period.”
