Gulacsi Tracked By Newcastle


Press reports are suggesting that former Hereford United loanee goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi is being tracked by Newcastle United.

Currently with RB Leipzig, Gulacsi is well known to Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez.

When just 17, Benitez signed Gulacsi from MTK Budapest. However the youngster never played for the Liverpool first team despite being sent out to Hereford United, Tranmere and Hull to gain experience.
 

Hereford United v Cardiff City - From the archives

The Bulls and the Bluebirds have always had a healthy rivalry. On the 14th April 1976 a crowd of 35,459 at Ninian Park witnessed Cardiff defeat Hereford 2-0 in the old Division Three. Unfortunately I don't have footage of that game, but I do have a selection of matches from the early to mid 1990's . Cardiff always bought a good following to Edgar Street.

Hereford Were Excellent Said Telford Manager


Rob Edwards, the AFC Telford manager, felt that yesterday's friendly opponents Hereford had given his side a decent game.

"Today was real to what we are going to face in a few weeks time." said Edwards as reported by the Non-League Paper.

"Hereford were excellent and they are going to have a fantastic year.

"We are looking at bringing reinforcements in to make the group stronger.

"We lacked that killer edge." 


It's Cardiff City At Edgar Street On Wednesday


Cardiff City are Hereford's opponents on Wednesday evening in the first friendly of this pre-season to be played at Edgar Street.

How strong a team the Bluebirds will bring remains to be seen but Hereford manager Peter Beadle thought that some senior players could be included in what had been originally described as an under 23 side. 

"With Neil Warnock in charge and the people they've got there, they will look to do it right.

"I think they will look to do it as a proper football match.

"Jenks has spoken to Ron Jepson, he knows Ronnie quite well, he played with Ronnie a few years back.

"I think they play Shrewsbury on Tuesday. They've got quite a big squad.

"So, hopefully, they'll have a few players who don't get enough minutes on Tuesday who will come along and play on Wednesday.

"It will be another tough test for the players.

"(Yesterday) we got through the game with flying colours, we've put in a really good solid performance. On another day could have nicked it but it's not about the result."

Tickets for Wednesday's game are available online at https://herefordfc.cloudvenue.co.uk/cardiffu23 and also from the club on Wednesday from 10am. As it's a friendly it's all pay.

Cardiff supporters will have the Len Weston away area.

Prices are: Adults £9, Concessions £8, Under 18's £1.

Battling Bulls Keep Bucks At Bay


Rob Purdie Captained Hereford
Hereford FC travelled to AFC Telford this afternoon for what was probably their toughest pre-season friendly to date. 

Manager Peter Beadle was without Mike Symons, Craig Dinsley and Ryan Green who are away on holiday. And yesterday he was told by keeper Ollie Davies that he was leaving the club after just a couple of weeks.

Just as the friendly was about to kick-off, the rain started but soon stopped. The Telford pitch was in good condition and both teams started the game looking to move the ball around.

Hereford had a couple of early chances and probably settled better than the home side. One fell to Mike McGarth.



And another to John Mills.

John Mills
Keeper Martin Horsell had to be alert to ensure this strike went wide.

Martin Horsell Diving To His Right
On 22 minutes John Mills was brought down by Telford Keeper Jasbir Singh but the Hereford striker's well struck penalty was kept out as Singh dived the right way and got a hand to it.




Telford came into the game after the penalty and chances for Hereford were few and far between.

Jimmy Oates was yellow carded for a challenge on Newby.

Keyon Reffell, who looked lively on the right wing, might have done better with this cross


which went straight to the keeper.

Half-time Telford 0 Hereford 0

The second half was pretty even with both sides having limited chances. On 60 minutes Beadle took off John Mills and gave a start to Lance Smith.


Lance Smith
And a few minutes later Garyn Preen replaced Rob Purdie.

Telford's Mathew Barnes-Homer headed wide and John Marsden hit the bar before on 78 minutes Pablo Haysham tried his luck but his shot went inches wide.


Haysham had another effort close to the end of the game which flashed past the keeper but again was just wide.


Final Score: AFC Telford 0 Hereford FC 0

Hereford: Horsell, Oates, Bowen, Edge, Deaman, Preece, Reffell, McGrath, Mills, Haysham, Purdie

Subs: Preen (for Purdie), Smith (for Mills), Pugh, Hayes, Richards, Harris

As Beadle said in his post match interview this was a useful friendly to test out his defence. Telford are in National North and on the day were the more physical of the two teams but credit to Hereford who defended well whilst not creating many chances.

The attendance wasn't announced but maybe 450 with around 150 supporting Hereford.

Just What We Needed Said Beadle



This afternoon's friendly at Telford was 'just what we needed' said Hereford FC manager Peter Beadle in his post match interview.

The game ended goal-less and Hereford's defence had to work hard to stop Telford from scoring.

"A fantastic friendly," said Beadle.

"I spoke to Rob (Telford manager) just coming off there and he said it was exactly what they needed as well.

"We really felt the benefit of that. A lot of the lads had ninety minutes.

"In spells I thought we played really well so it's been win win again today.

"I thought for the first twenty minutes we were good, we started really well, a couple of half chances, got the penalty. I thought we were in the asendancy.

"And then they had their spell, fifteen, twenty minutes towards the end of the half when we were pegged back a little bit.

"They never caused us what I would call a real major problem but it was tough because we had to defend a lot.

"It's not normal for us to be without possession for that amount of time so it was brilliant for us to ensure we had our shape right and the position of one or two people so a really good workout.

"Second half I thought it was a bit more even throughout the game. We had a decent spell, then they had a decent one.

"So I was really pleased with what we've done.

"We said before the game what would be nice was to have a clean sheet and I thought we deserved a clean sheet. It was a real team performance today."

Keeper Martin Horsell had plenty to do but was up to everything sent his way. However he took a knock in the first half when he was clattered by a Telford player.

"I suppose this is the difficulty in pre-season friendlies referees knowing how hard to come down.

"I thought the tackle on Pablo was a yellow card, I thought the tackle on Preece to push him over Horsell was a yellow card and then he books Jimmy for a yellow which looked not too much different to the one on Pablo.

"But it's their pre-season too but I think sometimes you need to stamp it out because players think that being a pre-season game they are not going to be sent off so they'll just do a reckless one and get away with it.

"It's a nasty knock on his knee but he is now going away on holiday so he will get a chance to rest it in the sun!

"Oliver Davies has had an offer to do a week at Yeovil. I spoke to him on Thursday and they wanted him there to the end of the week. I presumed they were speaking to him on Friday.

"I spoke to him yesterday to ask him if he was with us but Yeovil wanted him to play in their game at Frome this afternoon, I think they were going to make a decision then.

"But he also said that Newport had made him an offer so either way he was going to take one or the other. So Ollie has moved on which is a shame and I'm disappointed as we worked hard to get him here, spent a lot of time doing the deal to get him here and we were looking forward to seeing him work.

"I understand why he's done it as he wants full-time football and that's what he's done.

"But it leaves us a bit short on Wednesday. We'll have Max but Max is going to Aston Villa on Monday for a week which is fantastic for us, Rory has gone to Shrewsbury, Ollie has now gone to Newport or Yeovil.

"Villa rang us about having a look at him for a week's training but he is going to be available on Wednesday but being a friendly as well I wouldn't take the risk of playing him if I can get cover.

"So we are going to work hard this weekend to try and get cover, If not I might put myself in there. No I won't I wouldn't do that to anybody given the sight of me in a goalie kit.

"It's just one of those things but part and parcle of pre-season.

"We've played well again today without Green, Dinsley and Symons. All in all a decent day."

Keeper Davies Leaves Bulls

Goalkeeper Oliver Davies has left Hereford. BN understands he's received a better offer from elsewhere.

More on this later.

Goalless Draw at Telford

The Bulls drew 0-0 with the Bucks in a preseason friendly.

Hereford had a penalty saved during the first half, and right at the death Haysham couldn't break the deadlock with a powerful drive.

Report to follow.  

Randolph Linked With Move To Middlesborough


Former Hereford United loanee keeper Darren Randolph could be moving to Middlesborough from West Ham.

England keeper Joe Hart is joining West Ham on a season long loan deal from Manchester City so Randolph is looking for another club.

He is set to travel to Middlesborough today for a medical.

The Irish born keeper came to Edgar Street on loan from Charlton at the start of the 2008/09 season but fell out with manager Graham Turner.

Preview: AFC Telford United vs Hereford


Hereford travel to fellow phoenix club AFC Telford United this afternoon for a preseason friendly.

The Bulls are yet to face the National League North side since reforming, but Hereford United did play their Shropshire neighbours frequently over the years.

The most recent meeting was on the final day of the 2012/13 season, which was the Bulls' first season back in the Conference. Hereford had already secured a 6th-placed finish, and comfortably beat the Bucks 4-0.

Sam Clucas, who had just been named as player of the year, scored twice, with Marlon Jackson and Josh O'Keefe also finding the back of the net.

A Very Happy Brain Smikle With Scorer Josh O'Keefe In The Middle Of The Group
Meanwhile, Telford's new manager Rob Edwards will be keen for his side to put in an improved performance compared to Thursday night - a young Bucks side were thrashed 14-1 by Welsh Premier side The New Saints.

His arrival is part of a wider shake-up at the club, apparently as a result of new investment. BBC Shropshire's Nick Southall was told it was too good to turn down (link).

For Bulls fans making the journey, one option is to take the train.
For fans wanting to make their way straight to the ground, catch the 12:28 Holyhead service from Hereford, changing at Shrewbury to catch the train towards Wellington. The New Bucks Head stadium is a 15/20 minute walk from Wellington station.

But for those driving, the postcode is TF1 2TU. Allow one and half hours, and there's ample parking at the stadium (charged at £3).

Hereford manager Peter Beadle will be without Mike Symons, Ryan Green and Calvin Dinsley who are away, but it's hoped Garyn Preen will have recovered from the knock he picked up last weekend.

New signing Lance Smith should also play a part in the game, he trained on Thursday night after returning from holiday.

Clucas double spurs Bulls to victory


Two goals from player of the year Sam Clucas together with strikes by Marlon Jackson and Josh “goal machine” O’Keefe saw The Bulls comprehensively defeat already relegate Telford at The New Bucks Head this afternoon.

Martin Foyle made one change from the side that was robbed of a result against, now, champions Mansfield with Rod McDonald replacing Stefan Stam who dropped to the bench.  Former Bulls Ryan Valentine, Dan Preston and Stephen Leslie started for The Bucks.

Sam Clucas made a darting run down the left to deliver a cross that was intercepted just before it reached Ryan Bowman who was well positioned at the back post.  Chris Bush’s forward ball forced a corner from which Marley Watkins’ flag kick produced a fine Luke Graham header that was cleared upfield. 
Watkins was fouled 40 yards from goal but Bush’s free kick failed to create a threat.  Indecision between O’Keefe and Joe Connor almost created a chance for the hosts but the shot went wide for a goal kick.  A Bush long throw from the left sailed straight into the arms of keeper Ryan Young.

Aaron Williams sliced a shot wide of the target and Marco Adaggio lifted one well over as the hosts showed commendable intent in the early stages.
Bowman released Chris Sharp and he made good ground on the right before delaying his cross and when a second opportunity presented itself the cross was cleared.  Telford were having their share of the play with James O’Neil up top and Phil Trainer as the spare man in midfield.  Valentine, playing on the right of defence, played a ball into the heart of the Bulls’ penalty area which was blocked out by McDonald and when the midfield were slow to react, Adaggio nipped in to fire just over Bittner’s crossbar. 
Former Telford Striker Chris Sharp Getting Verbal Grief From Salmon And Young
Sharp was unfairly impeded on the right and Young tipped Clucas’ free kick round the post.  From the impending corner, Chris Sharp was harshly carded for reacting to some playful shirt pulling by the home keeper.  Then The Bulls took the lead on 40 minutes.
Marley Watkins switched wings with Clucas to deliver a far post cross which Sam met with a header that could only be partially stopped by Young and Clucas was alert to the possibility enabling him to follow up with a close range tap in.

A shot from Williams brought Bittner into the action before Sharp was penalised for a challenge on Adaggio from which Leslie fired wide of the target.
HT Telford 0 Bulls 1
Hereford were swiftly out of the blocks in the second period adding to their goal tally just a few minutes after the restart.  Marley Watkins fed Bowman who, in turn, slipped the ball to Sam Clucas.  Sam dropped a shoulder before dragging the ball to the side and firing low past the keeper from 12 yards.
Former Bull Ryan Valentine Looks On As Clucas Scores His Second Goal Of The Game
Chris Sharp rolled off a defender to make space for a shot, which was cleared at the expense of a corner before Ryan Bowman made way for Marlon Jackson on 50 minutes.
Watkins picked up a bang on the ankle and was replaced by Smikle then Bush’s free kick found O’Keefe in an advanced position but his lay-off was stabbed wide by Sharp.  The Bulls added to their tally on 62 minutes.
Marlon Jackson showed good persistence working his way across the edge of he box before turning between two defenders and firing home from 15 yards.
Marlon Jackson Gets Past Two Defenders To Score Hereford's Third
A diagonal ball from Jackson almost put Smikle in but the Bulls’ substitute produced a telling contribution in the build up to the fourth goal twenty minutes before the end.
Smikle’s good work on the right preceded a cross to the marauding Sam Clucas and the keeper only parried his shot with Josh O’Keefe on hand to force home from close range.
A Very Happy Brain Smikle With Scorer Josh O'Keefe In The Middle Of The Group
Joe Connor and substitute Joe Heath (on for Chris Sharp) both put in dangerous crosses before Bittner went full length to deny Spray.  Marlon Jackson had a reasonable chance to add to the lead but his effort from Joe Heath’s flick sailed high over the bar to the disappointment of the impressive 464 Bulls fans in a crowd of 2102.
FT Telford 0 Bulls 4
Hereford: Bittner; Connor, Graham, McDonald, Bush, Watkins (Smikle 55), O’Keefe, James, Clucas, Bowman (Jackson 50), Sharp (Heath 66). Subs not used: Gallinagh, Stam.
Telford:Young, Adaggio, Preston (Spray 74), Salmon, Valentine, Bennett (Jones 70), Rooney (Bradley 70), Trainer, Leslie, O’Neill, Williams. 
After a slightly frustrating first half The Bulls took control in the second period and may well have added to their score before the final whistle.  Newcomers Bush and McDonald both played with a maturity that was beyond their years.  Kingsley James cemented his place on fans’ wish-lists while the whole squad should receive a collective pat on the back for a fine team performance.
BN MOM Samual “another season will be just fine” Clucas.

Edwards Is 'A Real Capture' For Cardiff Met


Joel Edwards
Christian Edwards, manager of Cardiff Met FC, has been speaking to the Hereford Times about the signing of former Hereford FC captain Joel Edwards.

"I know he has his own coaching business, so we spoke to him potentially coming to the university and studying a sports coaching degree," said Edwards.

"He will join us next season with regards to studying at the university and it allows him to play for us.

"I have done my digging around regarding Joel.

"I spoke to Steve Jenkins at Hereford, who said he was unlucky to be released and was a very good player.

"I know the history behind Joel and his captaincy of Hereford and I also spoke to Gareth Davies, who also gave Joel some huge praise.

"So he is a real capture for ourselves and one that will very much add to the squad."
 

Moreira on the Move



Former Hereford youngster Carlos Moreira has signed for Westfields.

After leaving Edgar Street he signed for Cinderford, before finishing last season with Pegasus Juniors.

He then started for Lads Club in the preseason friendly against Hereford last week, but was soon invited to train with Midland League side Westfields.

This afternoon, 'Fields confirmed that they had signed Moreira and Hay St. Mary's skipper Stuart Davies.

Davies didn't have the best of starts as he suffered a broken fibula in their game against Pegasus last night.

Apprentice Vacancy at Edgar Street


The club are looking for an office apprentice to help with general admin.

Other tasks will include answering supporters' queries, as well as selling tickets/merchandise face-to-face, online and over the phone.

The length of the apprenticeship is one year, with the weekly wage £140.
