    Always loved Hereford Away

    Re: Always loved Hereford Away

    I was at that game! I loved going up to Hereford as well. A fairly easy trip, and always a raucous crowd. They also had a microwave in the food stall, so the pasties were hot, and they also sold Cadbury's Dairy Milk. Great stuff.

    My first "proper" match was at Hereford in 1969 in the "old" Southern League.
    It was a once a year family day out for us but on this occasion instead of getting dragged around the cathedral and market (one of them must have been closed for some reason) we all went to the match.
    John Charles was player manager back then and scored a fantastic header from a corner.

    I felt sorry for Hereford though , it was an invasion of the Taff's

    Yes great old style ground. Drive past it quite often on my way from Shropshire to Wales and it looks like it's falling to bits now same as Herfords team. Think they are bottom of the conference south at the moment.

    I always enjoyed Hereford, it was very lively, the train mob was always well received by the locals

    didn't they used to have a porsche garage on the way to the ground ? ? ? ? or was that somewhere else

    I still get to Edgar Street now and again (been a couple of times this season). The ground is still OK tbh, although one of the terraces behind the goals is unused and looks a bit dilapidated. Good set of fans who get behind their team, although the ground is a bit too big for them at present. Went to a game last season where a group of their fans burst into the Welsh National Anthem mid-game!

    Sunday afternoon kick off (I think)? Five of us in a Ford Escort. All severely under the influence apart from the designated driver who opted to only smoke weed. I was a state from the previous night and the whole day felt a bit like a hallucination. Had no moither in Hereford but when stopping in Abergavenny on the way home got into a row with a Hereford fan in a pub who must’ve been nearly 50 and took exception to our uncouth language. My mate calling him a “cuunt” might’ve topped it.

    Had to leave my pint of Labatts in the pub.

    I got surrounded by a dozen Hereford farmer boys outside the station

    I don't think they were trying to sell me spuds

    Funny place Hereford. I can imagine they would get their hands on their arses with loads of Taffs acting like proper wannabe Silurian warrior plums on their patch.

    Never had any issues at the matches themselves but used to knock around with a girl from outside Hereford and went into ‘town’ with her on the weekend a few times. It must be all the country air or cider but there’s some right headers looking for it with anyone?

    Thankfully for me, it was pre the Partridge episode involving Peter Baxendale Thomas. If I’d seen that, I’d have repeated it over and over and undoubtedly got myself hospitalised

    Re: Always loved Hereford Away

    feb 76 both going for promotion the hammered us 4-1 a wall collapsed in the away end. bumped into the late Mair Daniels after the game she laid into me because i didnt show for the bus and she'd held it Ponty, (went with mates in a car)
    both went up that season with Millwall i think
    happy days
    great season Evans/Alston on fire

    For some reason Hereford and Gloucester are both in the Conference North. Hereford are bottom.

    My 2nd ever away game.
    1 of my favourite seasons. I went to Swindon on boxing day then Hereford then Shrewsbury lost all 3 of my 1st 3 away I should have saw the signs.
    We got promoted though at Bury on a Tuesday night.
