90 years of football history wiped out. After all the euphoria of last month gutted for #HerefordUnited feel for all the true fans

Comedian Omid Djalili has said he is 'gutted' after Hereford United's expulsion from the Football Conference.

The Bulls' membership from the competition has been revoked because they did not pay their football debts.

The decision means the club will drop down at least two divisions.

In April, Djalili played two sell-out gigs to help cash-strapped Hereford, raising £21,000.

The money helped the club pay a looming tax-bill.

Later that month The Bulls narrowly avoided relegation on the final day of the season, at the expense of Chester.

Following yesterday's decision, Chester have now been reprieved from relegation.
