An Evening of Soccer with Ben Smith **SOLD OUT**

Former Hereford favourite Ben Smith is coming back to the county later this month, and the ex-Bulls midfielder's ‘Evening of Soccer’ at the Rankin Club, Corn Square, Leominster on Wednesday, 19th July, has SOLD-OUT.

Smith is looking forward to meeting up with many supporters who saw him play at Edgar Street.

“It’s 8 years since I left but playing for Hereford was the happiest period of my career so it will be good to come back,” said Smith. 

“I’m sure it will be a really good night.” 

Smith scored 25 goals in 151 games during two spells with the Edgar Street club and starred in the 2007–08 season as the Bulls gained promotion to Football League One. He was always a very popular figure at the club and after retirement has written a highly successful book ‘Journeyman’ which he describes as one man’s odyssey through the lower leagues of English football. 

Having played for a succession of high-profile coaches and managers such as Bruce Rioch, Pat Rice, Alan Pardew, Colin Addison, David Webb, Graham Turner, Jimmy Quinn, Gary Peters, Garry Hill, and Steve Evans he has plenty of tales to tell, from memories of running out at Old Trafford, to cleaning England International David Seaman’s boots! 

Supporters who have missed out on the opportunity of attending the event can be placed on a "waiting list" should any cancellations arise by emailing: 

Mike Symons from the current Hereford squad will also be attending the event for a Q&A session as "the Beast" looks ahead to the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division campaign.
