HUST Fans Survey


This from HUST:
 
HUST - FANS SURVEY

The raw data from the recent Fans Survey has now been collated. 
The process of analysing the results is a complex and time-consuming exercise, especially regarding individual suggestions and comments.
In order that members and non-members who were invited to participate can get some early feedback, and so that Hereford FC can get some indications of the feelings of its supporters, we intend to release the raw data results in chart form.
This will be available on the HUST website from midday on Wednesday 31st August.
The Board would like to thank the hundreds of supporters who took park in the survey which has given us many indicators  as to our future actions as we progress.

Barnstaple Manager Hopes For Good Support


Barnstaple manager Barry Yeo is hopeful that supporters will get behind his team for the visit of Hereford on Saturday.

"I would hope that nearly everyone who is available to come to the game on Saturday would come," said Yeo as reported by the North Devon Journal.

"If we could get 800-plus it would be a great feat for the club. It would be nice for the lads to get that sort of support as they (Hereford) will have a great following.

"I want the lads to realise how far they have come, they deserve these kind of games for what they have done and I hope they enjoy it.

"We are expecting them to bring about 500 (fans) which is a credit to them"We want to do our best by making it a good day for them, but we have a job to do on the pitch.

"We will do some work on nullifying their threat and on being positive going forward.

"I can't go back (in history) and say how big the game is, but Hereford coming is something we could have only dreamed of a few years ago.

"They are on a great run already, which is the way it was always going to be."

Bowen Impressed In Debut For Hull


Former Hereford United youngster Jarrod Bowen impressed in his first team debut for Hull at Exeter last night.

Along with several other younger players, he was called into the first team for the League Cup Tie.

This edited article is from Hull FC:

Jarrod Bowen and Greg Olley both made their senior debuts for the Tigers in the victory at St James Park on Tuesday night and first team coach Stephen Clemence was impressed with their performance.

“They’ve been a part of things ever since we went to Portugal at the start of the summer,” said Clemence.
“I thought Greg Olley and Jarrod Bowen were particularly good on Tuesday night. They tired a little bit towards the end but they showed that they can definitely play at a higher level. They did themselves no harm at all. It was just unfortunate that we lost Josh Tymon and Greg Luer to injury during the game.

“But it’s always nice to see young players coming through and trying to make their way in the game. Now they need to try and keep themselves around the first team and carry on with their progression.

“The senior players can help with that. We spoke to a couple of them before the game to remind them of how the senior players would have helped them when they were making their debuts years ago, last night it was their turn to do that. There will be times when the younger players need support on the pitch, although Jarrod and Greg didn’t need much support on Tuesday night and took to it really well.

“We signed Jarrod from Hereford when he was 16 and he has progressed really well with the Academy. He’s done well with us all through pre-season.

“They still have a lot to do, but they can be proud of what they did against Exeter.”

Joe Tumelty

Hereford United Then And Hereford FC Now


Hereford FC historian Ron Parrott has spent sometime over the last few months helping out 'Herefordshire Life Through A Lens'.

'Ron Parrott, knowledgeable archivist and long-term fan of Hereford United, discusses how that epic match against Newcastle, in the FA Cup third round replay of 1972, changed things for the club. Parrott talks about then and now; the changing nature of the League, and how the game against Newcastle made the League pay attention to Hereford United, which was a non-league club at the time. Parrott describes how the club is thriving now and he tells us about the immense community spirit which surrounds the club today.'
