Before kick-off this afternoon at Edgar Street Rob Purdie was presented with a trophy in appreciation of his 400 appearances in a Hereford shirt by football director Martin Watson.
In his programme notes manager Peter Beadle mentioned Purdie's achievement.
"I must take time to mention Rob Purdie and his fantastic service to both Hereford United and Hereford FC over the years.
"He arrived at Edgar Street as an 18 year old back in the early 2000's and has gone on to make 400 appearances over the years.
"It's a fantastic acheivment for any player to make 400 appearances for one club and he should rightly receive the plaudits."
