Hereford United has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

The club is accused of not submitting a completed and signed declaration for the Owners and Directors Test for its majority shareholder, Alan McCarthy.

Mr McCarthy has been charged with acting as an officer of Hereford United without written confirmation from the FA to do so.

Both the club and Mr McCarthy have until the 3 November to respond to the charges.

Mr McCarthy is the the owner of Alpha Choice Finance, which bought Tommy Agombar's shareholding when Mr Agombar himself failed the Officers and Directors Test.

Hereford United was thrown out of the football conference in June over unpaid debts and now plays in the Southern Premier League.

Earlier this month, Hereford United paid off outstanding rent and legal fees to Herefordshire Council, which has begun repossession proceedings for the Edgar Street ground it owns.

A high court petition calling for the club to be wound up was adjourned for six weeks on 20 October.
