Hereford U12's 3-5 Yate Town
ate Town came out of the starting blocks the quickest of the two teams and got into there stride immediately, playing some good positive football. With Rueben Rule making it 1-0 in the first quarter. Rule then scored a second with some neat build up play. The Gold award winner Tommy Andrews -Britton then got his name on the score sheet to make it 3-0 at the end of the 2nd quarter, to put the game seemingly out of Hereford's reach. However, Hereford came out in the 3rd quarter with much more energy and purpose and grabbed a goal through the industrial Freddie Parker. The momentum was very much with Hereford and they sensed a dramatic comeback was on the cards. Against the run of play Yate Town's Matthew Gore produced an absolutely sensational strike to make it 4-1. This did not deter Hereford and they kept battling and reduced the deficit through a Jamie Holman goal. Making it 4-2, going into the 4th quarter.Hereford started as they finished the 3rd quarter, placing pressure on the Yate Town players, forcing them into mistakes, which Hereford capitalised on with a well taken Archie Horton finish. This made it 4-3 with 10 minutes left. Hereford had chances to equalise but just couldn't find that finishing touch. But step forward Yate Town's Matthew Gore once again with a great strike, which ultimately finished off any hopes of a Hereford comeback.

Henley Park Rangers 5-1 Hereford U13 (Friendly)
The game remained 0-0 for some time with Hereford keen to play out from their GK, and HPR looking to spring and press. Hereford played some nice football, with good passing and movement, HPR enjoyed more possession in Herefords half. A Reece Matharu free kick caused some hesitation in Herefords back line allowing Josh Brookes to sweep home the ball. 1-0 HPR. Hereford broke down the left flank and scored via Harrison Summers whose shot from a tight angle found the gap between GK and post. 1-1. HPR raced back down the other end and caught Hereford when Louis Godfray anticipated Herefords play and nipped in to finish to place HPR 2-1 up. Into the second half and both sides had good opportunities before Charlie Deex King scored a delightful left footed free kick from the right side of the pitch in Herefords final third. Louis Godfray again scored to make it 4-1 with a instinctive lob over Herefords GK. Connor Ribiero wrapped up the scoring by pushing through a right sided run finishing neatly in the corner.

Hereford U14 3-4 Henley Park Rangers
Almost two minutes into the first quarter, HPR manged to open the scoring, with a well taken finish. The teams then battled it out quite evenly until the end of the quarter. In the second quarter HFC started strongly but were unable to capitalize, HPR scored after 10 minutes, possibly against the run of play. They swiftly added a second before the H/T interval. Hereford again started strongly in the third quarter and managed to score five minutes before the interval. Again HFC came out strongly and soon added a second with a well taken header off a cross. This made for an interesting last ten minutes, with HPR breaking away to score, before HFC again struck back off a corner.
