Throwback Thursday - Rob Purdie, Owen Pickard, Ian Bowyer - If you haven't done so already please give the channel a subscribe.

Lets start with Boxing Day 2003 and a wonder strike from Rob Purdie. The game with Exeter ended 1-1.

Owen Pickard enjoyed two seasons at Edgar Street. His first season was better than the 2nd, but he did score some decent goals (An opening day strike against Scarborough was a superb goal). Pickard left Hereford in 1994 and later played for Dorchester and Yeovil. He now works in Bideford as a chiropodist.

Ian Bowyer was manager of Hereford United from 1987-1990. I have converted an old audioboom interview which was recorded in May 2015 to the youtube channel.  Find out :
