Undy on Tuesday

Hereford travel over the border and into Wales on Tuesday evening when they travel to Undy Athletic. Kick off is 7:15pm and admission is £5 for adults.

History (taken from Undy's official website)
Undy was formed in 1947 and the changing facilities were in Undy Church Hall, using a tin bath for washing. Club colours at that time were black and white. Unfortunately in 1962 the club was disbanded, due to lack of support. The club was reformed in 1970 but it was not until 1981 that they appointed a manager. During that 11 year period Undy operated without any team managers and a selection committee picked the teams every week. In recent years Undy have seen a continual improvement of the first team and during the 2010/11 season they won the Gwenty County first division and gained promotion to the Welsh football league. The following season they went on to win promotion from the Welsh third division. Since then they established themselves in the 2nd division and last season they gained promotion to Welsh division 1. 

Former Undy goalkeeper Rhys Wilmot played 9 matches for Hereford United in 1983 on a loan spell from Arsenal.

From Hereford follow the A49 towards Ross on Wye then take the A4137 toward Monmouth just after the Harewood End pub. Follow the A4137 before joining the A40 towards Monmouth. Follow A40 for around 20 miles before continuing straight onto the A449. Continue on the A449 for around 12 miles until you reach the Celtic Manor roundabout. Take the 2nd exit (signposted M4 London/Chepstow) and merge onto the M4. Follow the M4 for around 3 miles before exiting the M4 at junction 23A. At junction follow the road around and exiting the roundabout onto the A4810 take the first left onto the B4245 Magor/Magwyr/Caldicot. At the roundabout take the third exit sigposted Magor/Caldicot (B4245) and follow the B4245 for around a mile before turning right onto The Ramp. Follow The Ramp over a bridge and ground will be on the left handside. Postcode: NP26 3EW
