A statement released by The FA read: "Hereford United FC has been charged with misconduct under FA Rule E.1(b) and Regulation 4.2 of The Regulations for the Owners’ and Directors’ Test for Clubs (the “ODT Regulations”).  

It is alleged that Hereford United has breached Regulation 3.1.1 of the ODT Regulations in not submitting to The Association a duly completed and signed ODT Declaration in respect of Mr Alan McCarthy, the majority shareholder in the Club.

Mr McCarthy has been charged with misconduct under FA Rule E.1(b) and Regulation 4.3 of the ODT Regulations.
