Edge On Trial With Gloucester City


Former Hereford FC mid-fielder Jamie Edge played for Gloucester City in their game against Cheltenham Town last night. It was a county cup tie.

Also making an appearance was winger Sirdic Grant who played for Hereford the season before last.

Edge played the whole game whilst Grant came on mid-way through the second half.

Grant can not feature for Gloucester in their league as he is not allowed to play above step five.

Beadle Expected To Make Changes For Westfields Tonight


Hereford FC manager Peter Beadle is expected to make wholesale changes to the side that defeated Kempston last Saturday for tonight's HFA Challenge Cup tie at Westfields.

He will aim to give those players who haven't had much game time recently the chance to gain match fitness.

"The game has come at a great time for us in that it gives us an opportunity to give players minutes," said Beadle.

Adam Page, Lance Smith and Rob Purdie came off the bench last Saturday.

"We wanted to get Adam on the pitch as soon as we could to get him involved quickly and Lance (Smith) as well to get some minutes under his belt. And Purds has been chomping at the bit to get in and do well.

"Simmo could do with another run out as well, maybe one or two others as well." 

New signing Jamie Bird is likely to start.

"He's chomping at the bit to get a game so we can play him on Wednesday."

Jack Deaman, who has missed several games with injury recently, is another player who might get a start. Bradley Williams may also feature.

However several younger players in Beadle's squad may not take part as they involved in the FA Youth Cup tie last Monday which went to extra-time.

Kick off is at 7.45pm.

Admission: Adults £7, Concessions £5, Under 16's £1

Extra parking will be available close to the ground on Widemarsh Common for £1 with the proceeds going to Lads Club.

Radio Hereford FC are set to have full commentary from the game.

Hereford Out Of FA Youth Cup


Despite probably having slightly more of the possession overall and slightly more chances Hereford's Under 18's were knocked out of the FA Youth Cup by a strong Stourbridge side at Edgar Street last night.

Hereford scored first just two minutes into the second half. 





 
 Luke Firkin scored the goal with the Stourbridge keeper stranded.

Twenty five minutes later the visitors equalised.



The Stourbridge No 2 was given far too much space.

With the scores level after 90 minutes extra time was played.

However within a minute Stourbridge went ahead.


Credit to Hereford as they tried hard to find an equaliser. And with just a few minutes left they thought they had done so.




 
Despite appeals the assistant ruled that the ball hadn't gone over the line.

Right at the end another chance for Hereford.


A
But the brave Stourbridge keeper had other plans.

So Hereford bowed out of this years FA Youth Cup.

Hereford starting XI: 1.Harris 2.Franklin 3.Pugh 4.A.Thomas 5.W.Thomas 6.Peeters-Vanstone 7.Hayes 8.McLeod 9.Firkin 10.Lancett 11.Smith

Subs: 12.Hurst 14.L.Marston 15.Preece 16.Hancocks 17.Davies
