The Hereford Renaissance


Tom Reed has written an article entitled 'The Hereford Renaissance'.

Hereford FC fans cheered a second successive promotion with sun-warmed faces and bellyfuls of cider: a contrast to standing on cold High Court steps as they did when their dear old club Hereford United went to the wall in 2014. Back then, the winding up hearing over debts amounting to £148k was adjourned nine times before the club, formed in 1924, bit the dust. Looters ransacked the Edgar Street bar on hearing the news, taking TV’s and even the spirit optics.

Now the Hereford FC players and staff were soothed by the spray of champagne on being presented the Southern League South and West trophy as the phoenix club continued its course back to the Football League.
