HFA Cup Final Is Last Home Game Before Wembley

Hereford FC will play their last home game of the season on Bank Monday afternoon, May 2nd, before the FA Vase final at Wembley on May 22.

The game is the final of the HFA County Challenge Cup and their opponents are Westfields who are based just a few hundred yards away from Edgar Street.

Westfields, winners for the last five years, take on Hereford FC who in their first season will look to build on winning the League to pick up their second trophy of a possible four. 

The two clubs have met twice in the Midland Premier League this season. Back in August the teams played out a goal-less draw at Westfields but at the return game on Boxing Day Hereford were 3-0 winners.

HFA CEO Jim Lambert said “ We hope it will be a fantastic advert for County football and would like to thank fans in advance for supporting the game.”  He also pointed out that, “ Any surplus monies made from the game will be reinvested into local football”  

As well as Hereford making their last appearance at Edgar Street before going to Wembley, Hawkesbury 1 Ronaldo will be doing likewise.

'Ronaldo' will be paraded around the ground before kick-off.

At half-time the names of two 'Wembley' player escorts will be announced. The HFA has had over 400 interested youngsters for the chance to go with a player onto the Wembley pitch before kick-off.

After the final whistle the cup will be presented to the winning team and the players given medals.

Tickets for the game can be purchased online at: 

Tickets cost Adults £8, Concessions £5 and Juniors £3. It's an all pay game as it's being run by the HFA not Hereford FC.

Update: It's been pointed out to BN that this is not 'technically' a home game but when Hereford FC are playing at Edgar Street it's difficult to think of it as anything other than a 'home' game.
