The Bulls Are Back In The Cup

With Hereford being ineligible to play in the FA Cup in their inaugural season, fans have the magic of the cup to look forward to in August when Hereford FC play in the competition for the first time.

In an article on the official site yesterday, football secretary Martin Watson confirmed that although the format of the draw hadn't been confirmed, it is 'expected' to take place on 8th July.

It's likely that Hereford will join the competition on the 20th August in the Preliminary Round, with 2 rounds in both September and October should the Bulls get through.

To sum up, here's a list of some important dates for the coming season:
8th July - FA Cup Draw
15th July - Fixtures released

29th October - FA Trophy starts
