Hereford FC Chief Executive, Ken Kinnersley, has today praised the Hereford United Supporters Trust (HUST) Board for conducting a Fans Survey covering a variety of subjects relating to the club.
Initial examination of the raw data released in the ‘Results Infographic’ on the HUST website this week have already offered an interesting insight into supporters’ thoughts on a variety of club related topics.
Speaking about the Fans Survey, Kinnersley said:
‘I’d like to thank the HUST Board for taking the time to organise this survey – a huge amount of thought has obviously gone into the composition and the results make it a very interesting piece of work.
‘Although it has been conducted independently without input from the club, the survey clearly includes a lot of information that will prove hugely useful to everyone here at Edgar Street.
‘We will study the findings in detail over the coming days and I would like to reassure supporters that we will look to address any areas in which results of the survey suggest we can improve.
‘From a first look at the findings, my most significant initial thoughts are that it is particularly pleasing to see that so many contributors to the survey believe the main areas that HUST should invest its resources in are on building links between the club, fans and the community, and on raising funds to purchase shares in Hereford FC.
‘The latter point is particularly significant not only to ensure HUST takes up its option of owning exactly 50% of the shares in the club, but also to enable the club to continue to invest in its infrastructure and improve the supporter experience at Edgar Street.
‘Of equal importance such further investment in Hereford FC by HUST will help the club to build from a solid financial footing and ensure we continue to operate sustainably – a goal that simply must be achieved if Hereford FC is to have the bright future we all want so badly.’
