Hereford FC chairman Ken Kinnersley has said that he thinks recruiting directors could become more difficult given the ‘the level of commitment’ required and also warned that potential directors might be put off by ‘repeated criticism and abuse’ that directors sometimes have to face after taking ‘difficult’ decisions.

In his annual report to shareholders in advance of the club’s AGM, Kinnersley said he wanted to draw their attention to the ‘potential for future difficulties in the recruitment of HFC Directors’.

His comments come after the decision to sack former manager Peter Beadle which hasn’t gone down well with some supporters. However some of the abuse Kinnersley and other directors have received since that decision have been over the top to say the least.

Kinnersley may also have noticed how difficult HUST have found recruiting their directors. Currently there are five HUST directors and four empty seats.

Whilst HFC directors are ‘unpaid volunteers’, Kinnersley admits that it wasn’t realised just how much time the job would take up.

“Directors are now experiencing repeated disruption of their paid employment,” he said.

“Futhermore, with turnover now approaching £1M annually the time commitment has increased dramatically and will only continue to increase with additional but important projects due ‘on stream’ in the coming year.”
