Hereford hammer Hinton 13-0 in County Cup rout

The number 13 might be unlucky for some, but not for Hereford who hammered Hinton 13-0 in the Herefordshire FA County Challenge Cup.

Nine of the goals came in the final 20 minutes, with centre-half Jason Pope bagging a hat-trick.

Hereford made a number of changes for the game, with some under-18 players named in the squad. 

Two trialists started; Australian midfielder Daniel Alessi, and Richard Whittingham, who was last with Hungerford.

Hinton – who ply their trade in the Herefordshire FA County Premier League – kept Hereford at bay during the opening stages before youngster Morgan Evans opened the scoring in the 24th minute.

Pope then scored his first goal in the 39th minute before Evans added another just before the break.

Brad Ash made it 4-0 six minutes into the second half, but Hereford had to wait until the 70th minute to score again, this time through Pope.

A Goal For Ash
Two goals in a minute from Jacob Jagger Cane and Tom Owen-Evans made it 7-0 before Callum Wood netted.

Jagger Cane Scored Hereford's Sixth Goal
Pope sealed his hat-trick 11 minutes from time, with Wood netting again shortly afterwards. Chris Hilton made it 11-0, with Owen-Evans and Whittingham sealing Hinton’s fate.

Hereford: Burwood, Hopkins (Davies-Austin 71), Davies, Pope, Alessi, Whittingham, Jagger Cane, Owen-Evans, Ash, Evans (Wood 59), Muirhead (Hilton 59).
