Today’s sad news that Hereford United FC has been wound up in the High Court brought back childhood memories. In April 1976, I was one of 35,000 people who watched the team play Cardiff City at Ninian Park in Cardiff. Hereford were leading the old third division and City were placed second. Cardiff won 2-0 that unforgettable evening.
It was one of my favourite Ninian Park memories. I still have the match programme, signed by members of Cardiff City’s promotion team.
I hope Hereford one day rise from the ashes, like former Welsh Cup rival Newport County.
