Edgar Street: Set for redevelopment

The Bulls, who are battling for their Football League survival, have been in talks with a number of developers over proposals to build a hotel at the Blackfriars End and housing at the Meadow End of the ground, and the latest developments have accelerated the process.

Hereford chairman David Keyte told the club's official website: "After many months of detailed talks the council have now signed the Heads of Terms, which is what we need to start the next round in which we can offer developers and investors the real chance to come onboard and invest.

"For us the race is now on to raise the money or the investment needed to keep the club going to the next stage and hopefully even the fans will want to get involved as investors or partners."

The redevelopment opportunity comes after the club's board bought back Edgar Street's leases from Richardsons Capital LLP in December 2010.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
