Tribute to Cyrille Regis from Hereford United legend Stewart Phillips


 
Club Historian Ron Parrott has been speaking to Stewart Phillips about his memories of Cyrille, with whom he played at West Bromwich Albion and Stewart commented: “How lucky am I to be able to say that I had the privilege of playing up front with this guy. He was a magnificent footballer but so humble too, in fact he’s one of the nicest men I’ve ever met in football. Rest in peace Cyrille.”
 
The photograph shows Stewart with Cyrille, reunited at the 2016 documentary all about West Brom’s testimonial game for Len Cantello back in 1979, when controversially, a team of all-white players took on a team of all-black players. 
 

The team photo shows Stewart Phillips in the back from, fifth from the left and first on the left in the front row is another Hereford United star, Winston White, sitting next to Cyrille Regis. On the far right is Valmore Thomas, Hereford United’s Bermudian international full-back.”

This Evening's Game at Biggleswade Postponed


This evening's match at Biggleswade Town has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. There was a downpour over-night.

A new date for the game will be announced in due course, probably March 13th.

Hereford manager Peter Beadle may be pleased the game has been called off given the virus affecting several of his players recently.

Four Games This Evening In The Southern Prem


Four games are set to be played in the Southern Premier League this evening. However given the recent wet weather it's uncertain, as yet, if all four will be played.

Already there is a pitch inspection at Biggleswade, where Hereford are the visitors, at lunchtime.

Biggleswade v Hereford UPDATE: Match Postponed
Dunstable v Weymouth
Gosport v Chesham
Royston v St Neots

Pitch Inspection At Biggleswade


There will be a pitch inspection at Biggleswade around lunchtime tomorrow to see if the game against Hereford can go ahead.

News Round Up


The FA won't take any action against Hitchin Town following allegations of racist behaviour by fans during and after the game against Haringey Borough. A club statement reads: "Having considered our response and having conducted their investigations, the FA confirmed that they would not be taking any formal action against the Club on this occasion.

Kings Langley defender Jorell Johnson has been stripped of the club captaincy and fined one week's wages due to a 'breach of discipline'. The club say the money will be donated to an 'appropriate' charity.

Former Hereford United player Toumani Diagouraga has left Plymouth to join Fleetwood Town on a free transfer. The 30-year old said he wanted to move closer to his young family.

Kettering Town have received a formal warning from the FA and will have their future conduct monitored. This follows a complaint of racist abuse made at their home game against Redditch in August.



Beadle Hopeful He'll Have Players Back For Biggleswade



Four fixtures are set to take place in the Southern Premier League tomorrow (Tuesday).

One of them is at Biggleswade where Hereford are the visitors.

Should Hereford win the game, they will move to the top of the table overtaking current leaders Kettering and second placed King's Lynn.

However given the flu virus that is doing the rounds at Edgar Street, manager Peter Beadle will be pondering just how many players he will have available for the game.

On Saturday at Dorchester, Beadle had to bring in a couple of younger players to ensure he had five on the bench. Captain for the game Rob Purdie wasn't too well and both Jamie Bird and Mike Symons not fully recovered from the virus.

Beadle was hopeful that he would have a couple of players back fit but others may yet go down with illness.

"I think there are one or two who are fairly close, they are at the back end of it now," said Beadle after Saturday's game.

"By Tuesday they should be okay.

"Defensively we might look to bring another one in as Dara (O'Shea) isn't available for Tuesday.

"And we'll have to see how Ryan (Green) and Jack (Deaman) are on Monday.

"If we get to a situation where we need to bring anyone in then obviously we'll see if we can do it."

It's Biggleswade On Tuesday


Yesterday Biggleswade's Southern Prem fixture against Slough was called off after the officials deemed the pitch unfit.

Confirmation that the game had been called off came after Slough had left their ground.

It appears that both clubs felt the game could have gone ahead but were over-ruled.

Slough joint manger Neil Baker tweeted :
 
'Biggest joke decision from the officials today! Both sides want the game on, and pitch was probably 10 times better than when we played our game last season!! Was no issue at all! Fuming!'

And John Underwood, Slough's other joint manager also tweeted: 

'The game has officially gone. Just had a game called off when nothing wrong with the pitch and everyone apart from one man wanted to play.'

Given Hereford are due to travel to Biggleswade on Tuesday, the fact that yesterday's match was called off might be a blessing.

Had it gone ahead, the pitch would probably have been damaged and with today's rain might not have dried out enough for Tuesday. However as it wasn't played on, the rain might drain away a little easier.

After today the weather for Biggleswade is set to be cloudy but mild for Monday and Tuesday with little rain.
 

Very Important Victory Said Smith



Lance Smith scored the only goal of the game at Dorchester yesterday. Afterwards he spoke to BBC Hereford and Worcester.

"A very important victory," said Smith.

"We had players out and we did really well.

"It was probably one of the biggest wins of the season in my opinion."

John Mills supplied the cross for Smith to score.

"I thought he was going to chop it!

"Great cross and I was in the right place and got a good connection on it. Headed it to the floor and there was more chance of it going in then.

"It wasn't the best pitch but both teams had to play on it. You couldn't get the ball down and play how we like to. We just had to make the best of a bad situation really."

Smith had a few chances in the first half.

"I had a coulple of chances. The first one came early in the game but I didn't get a good connection on it. The second one came to me but it was an awkward height off the post.

"It was nice to get on the scoresheet and win."

Smith is aiming for 25 goals this season. To date he has scored 18.

"We've still got plenty games left to get them." 

Watch his goal:
 

Southern Prem Weekend Review


Hereford Supporters At Dorchester
A look back at the five games that were played in the Southern Prem written by Steve Whitney.

The wet weather claimed four of Saturday`s Evo-Stik League South Premier matches, but fortunately the top five all managed to see action.
And the leadership changed hands again after King` Lynn Town were held at The Walks by fourth-placed Weymouth, leaving Kettering Town to return to the summit after a hard-fought 4-2 win at Penydarren Park against Merthyr Town.
In front of 684, Lynn looked to be heading for three crucial points when Simon Lappin broke the deadlock to give them a 75th minute lead.
But Brandon Goodship popped up with an 86th minute equaliser for the Terras to make their long journey home a decent one.
Lynn lost the leadership though as the Poppies triumphed in Wales after the game survived several inspections.
In front of 556, the visitors took the lead after 9 minutes through Aaron O’Connor.
Rene Howe hit the crossbar soon after but he wasn`t to be denied after 28 minutes when he headed home to make it 2-0.
On-loan Matt Stevens made it 3-0 on 33 minutes and the Poppies went four-up 11 minutes into the second half thanks to Brett Solkhon.
But Merthyr went on to finish the game strongly with Kerry Morgan pulling one back 5 minutes later and then Ian Traylor made some visiting nerve ends tingle when he pulled a second back 5 minutes from time.

A big away following boosted the Avenue Stadium attendance to 909 as Hereford FC moved into third place with a 1-0 win against lowly Dorchester Town.

But a Lance Smith header just past the hour-mark was all that separated the sides in the end.

Tiverton Town were the only member of the top five to lose as the Yellows suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat to a now fourth-bottom St Ives Town at Ladysmead.
It was a terrific performance by the Saints, especially as they trailed 2-0 to goals from Levi Landricombe after 21 minutes and Jamie Price on 46 minutes.
Ollie Snaith`s penalty reduced the arrears 10 minutes into the second half and then Snaith scored from open play to equalise 15 minutes from time, with the winner coming from Declan Rogers in stoppage time.
Royston Town`s six-game unbeaten league run came to an end as the Crows suffered a 2-0 Garden Walk defeat to a Chesham United side who are now just a couple of points behind them in ninth.
It was veteran striker Jefferson Louis who won the day for the Generals with a brace in the 33rd and 77th minutes – the second from the spot.
Second-bottom Dunstable Town are just two points above bottom-markers Gosport Borough but have played three more games now after they suffered a 4-0 drubbing at the Rushmoor Community Stadium against Farnborough.
A Dan Walker penalty after just 8 minutes set Boro up and just 3 minutes later, Perry Coles added a second.
Jack Barton made it 3-0 in the 56th minute and Manny Omrore made it game over in the 77th minute.
Frome Town enjoyed the day`s most emphatic win, 6-1 at St Neots Town.
It was 2-0 at the break through Darren Jefferies after 8 minutes and Joe Raynes on 32 minutes.
Chas Hemmings after 53 minutes and Mitch Page 4 minutes later killed the game off as a contest, with Ryan Bath bagging a late brace in the 76th an 88th minutes ahead of Dion Sembie-Ferris` last-gasp consolation for the beleagured Saints.
Kings Langley gave themselves a boost by coming back to earn a late point at Redditch United.
The hosts led 2-0 with goals from Tristan Dunkley after 6 minutes and Ashley Sammons just before the break.
Mitchell Weiss reduced the deficit after 65 minutes, and then 4 minutes into stoppage time, Weiss grabbed Kings` leveller.

Dinsley 'Surprised' To Be Playing



After yesterday's 1-0 win at Dorchester, Hereford's Calvin Dinsley spoke to BBC Hereford and Worcester.

Normally a mid-fielder, Dinsley partnered Jordan Cullinane-Liburd in the heart of defence because both Ryan Green and Jack Deaman had the flu virus that is going around the club.

"I was a little bit surprised to be playing because I've been out for the last few weeks," said Dinsley.

"Everyone knows I've had a bit of trouble with my hamstring injury. 

"Probably in an ideal world the game you come back you want to be playing ten or twenty minutes to ease your way back into it but the gaffer didn't really have much choice with the boys off ill. Just happy to get the win.

"The pitch was very heavy so it was a little bit of a risk but it paid off and we got the result.

"Jordan has just come in and we trained on Thursday but I certainly didn't think I would be playing with him today.


"I thought he was different class and he fitted in brilliantly.

"I've never played there but you get thrown in and have to do the job for the team and I thought everyone was good today."

Asked about the result Dinsley said 'massive'.

"Those are the sort of results that win you the League.

"The chip were down and we could have easily come here and lost and made excuses."

Plenty of games coming up.

"It's going to be difficult but that's why we've got the squad and hopefully a few of the boys will recover this weekend and we'll have them back for the run-in.

"I'm sure the Gaffer will use the squad well. That's why we bring the players in we do and cope with the amount of games."

Second Half Pictures From Dorchester


A selection of pictures from the second half of Hereford's 1-0 win at Dorchester.













Dorchester Reaction To Hereford Win


Dorchester manager Steve Thompson gave his reaction to Hereford's 1-0 win.

"Obviously disappointed to lose," Thompson told BBC Solent.

"It was a very tough game for both teams.

"Hereford are a good team, probably I feel they will go on and win it.

"But they've had a tough game today.

"We've ran them close and created two very good chances in the second half. If one of them had gone in we would be probably looking at a draw.

"Their back four played very well today.

"It's the first goal in five home games we've conceeded (456 minutes) and I expect they will be delighted with a 1-0 win.

"I'm sure their manager will agree it was a very tough game on a very heavy pitch today.

"But we have ran them all the way."




First Half Pictures From Dorchester


A selection of pictures from the first half of this afternoon's Southern Prem fixture at Dorchester where Hereford gain a valuable three points with a 1-0 win.

New Signing Jordan Cullinane-Liburd Started






Jamie Cuss Was On The Bench


Dorchester Town 0 - Hereford 1


Lance Smith Scored The Only Goal Of The Game
Peter Beadle had to make wholesale changes for today's game at Dorchester with a virus bug hitting the camp in recent days. Four changes were made to the starting XI that started last weekend, with Rob Purdie, Calvin Dinsley and new signing Jordan Cullinane-Liburd the three defensive changes, with Garyn Preen replacing Keyon Reffell in midfield.

On a very heavy pitch, Hereford played down the slight slope in the first half in which they created the majority of the chances, the first coming in the ninth minute. With a Hereford corner initally being cleared, Jamie Bird quickly crossed the ball back into the box from the right. Calvin Dinsley connected well with the cross, but his header towards the far post was cleared off the line by Kyle Egan.


The Magpies put pressure on Hereford's make-shift back four, but Tom Blair's cross was headed behind for a well-defended corner.

Lance Smith then played a neat ball to John Mills, but instead of trying to advance towards goal, Mills tried a speculative shot which sailed over ex-Bull Chris Weale's bar.

The best chance of the first half came with 27 minutes on the clock. Jamie Bird struck the base of the post with an initial shot, before Lance Smith somehow headed the rebound over, when realistically he should have scored.

Mills had a decent chance late in the half. He stepped around several defenders but his shot was off target.


HT: Dorchester Town 0 - Hereford 0

After the restart, some neat build up play from Hereford saw a shot from 18-yards, but the effort sailed well over with the keeper unfazed.

Ed Bastick then broke away for the home side, but his effort was pushed around the post, with the subsequent corner being cleared.

Dorchester's home record of late has been good, scoring 14 goals and keeping clean sheets in their last four games - but Lance Smith ensured that run wouldn't extend to five games as he broke the deadlock on the hour mark.

Pablo Haysham took a corner which was cleared by a Dorchester defender but only so far as to John Mills. He provided a powerful but accurate cross to Smith, who made no mistake in heading the ball down and across the line, with Weale rendered helpless. 







A good save from Martin Horsell three minutes later saw Hereford keep hold of their one goal lead, with Hereford's keeper denying Sam Lanaham with his feet.

Tempers flared after Mills looked to have been brought down. Haysham and Ross Carmichael were booked in the handbags that followed.


Eight minutes from time, a chance for Jamie Bird sailed high and wide after some good play by Hereford.

Mike Symons then came off the bench as Hereford tried to see the game out and extend their run of unbeaten away league games to 53.

A free kick in a dangerous position for Dorchester in the 90th minute put bums on the edge of seats, but their free kick was poor.

The State Of The Pitch After Ninety Minutes
FT: Dorchester Town 0 - Hereford 1

Att: 909

Hereford: Horsell, Purdie (c), Dinsley, Liburd, Pring, Preen, Murphy, Haysham, Bird (Symons - 84'), Smith, Mills.

Next Game: Biggleswade Town Away on Tuesday 23rd January at 7.45pm

Adversity Is When We Become Stronger said Beadle



Peter Beadle was pleased with his side's 1-0 win at Dorchester Town given the illness in the camp.

He told BBC Hereford and Worcester's reporter Keith Hall that he thought it was the best result of the season so far, and the Bulls are at their strongest when things don't go their way.

When asked to come back and play for Hereford today, Dan Preston told Beadle that he didn't want to let Bromsgrove down, where he's dual-registered.

Beadle then told Bulls News that he might try to bring in another defender, but he's hopeful some players might return in time for Tuesday.

Make-Shift Hereford Make It 53 Away League Games Unbeaten


With a number of players struck down with flu in the last couple of days, a make-shift Hereford defence helped to claim all three points in this afternoon's match at Dorcester.

Calvin Dinsley started alongside debutant Jordan Liburd in the heart of defence, with Rob Purdie and Cameron Pring the full backs.

The only goal of the game came in the 60th minute as Lance Smith headed home John Mills' cross.

Full time: Dorchester Town 0 - Hereford 1

Tomorrow's Fixtures In The Southern Premier League


There's a full list of fixtures in the Southern Premier League tomorrow. However given that rain is forecast in some areas, one or two matches may be subject to pitch inspections.

Match of the day is probably at leaders King's Lynn where Weymouth (4th) are the visitors.

Although in 18th position, Merthyr's recent improved form might be good enough to take a point from their game against Kettering (2nd).

Hereford (3rd) have a tough looking away game at Dorchester (19th). The home team has had a decent run of form at home lately.  However Peter Beadle's squad have had a week off so may have a couple of players available again after injury.

Assuming it goes ahead Tiverton (5th) should be too strong for St Ives (21st).

Slough (6th) are away at Biggleswade (13th) and could make up some ground on those above them.

Banbury v Basingstoke
Biggleswade v Slough
Bishop's Stortford v Gosport
Dorchester v Hereford
Farnborough v Dunstable
King's Lynn v Weymouth
Merthyr v Kettering
Redditch v Kings Langley
Royston v Chesham
St Neots v Frome
Stratford v Hitchin - Postponed - Waterlogged Pitch
Tiverton v St Ives - Pitch Inspection 7.45am - Game ON

Top of the League:

HUST boosts HFC shareholding

This from HUST:
The Hereford United Supporters Trust is pleased to be able to announce that a further £15,000 was handed over to Hereford FC at the shareholder’s AGM on 15th January.

Trust Chairman Richard Tomkins explained. “Our members have indicated on a number of occasions that the purchase of shares is a major priority of The Trust.”

Supporter Information For Dorchester Tomorrow


Here is the latest supporters information from Dorchester for Hereford fans going to tomorrow's game.

Please note that whilst in theory this game is segregated, Hereford supporters who are elderly, have special needs or are parents with children can ask to go into the stand.

Supporter information

We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay at Dorchester Town but we must draw your attention to some important rules and regulations of the ground.

Following police advice regarding supporter safety, this match will be subject to supporter segregation. The segregated area includes a refreshment kiosk with hot and cold food and hot and cold drinks and cover.

Disabled supporters should contact the office on 01305 267623 to book a space, which are limited.


Hereford Have Mills And Reffell Said Thompson


Hereford travel to Dorchester tomorrow for a Southern Premier League fixture.

Dorchester's recent home form has been very good, four wins and clean sheets.

However manager Steve Thompson feels his side will have to be at its best to defeat third placed Hereford.  

“I have to be encouraged by the home form. I do think we’ll need to play better than we did against Redditch and Tiverton to beat them, hopefully we can," Thompson told the Dorest Echo.

“Those were good wins but we ground the Redditch one out. We’ll need to play well to even hope of getting a result.

“They’ve got John Mills and Keyon Reffell, who’s very quick. They’re good all over the place, that’s why they’re flying high.

“They’re very well supported, so it will be a good day. Hopefully they’ll bring 500 which will bring a bit of money to our club.”

All Matters Dismissed Against Sam Elkins


All matters against the three players and staff from Didcot Town relating to alleged offences at their game against Hereford last year have been dismissed.

Players Samuel Elkins and Callum McNish appeared at Oxford Magistrates Court earlier today and matters dismissed.

Coach Sam Parish saw matters dismissed at an earlier hearing

Mr Elkins faced two charges of assault by beating and one of common assault.


Council Appoint Keepmoat As Development Partner


Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Contracts and Assets, Harry Bramer and Keepmoat Homes Chief Operating Officer, Peter Hindley shake hands on the City Link Road.
Herefordshire Council has formally appointed Keepmoat Ltd as their partner developer to
deliver ambitious housing and growth plans for Hereford City and the wider county.

The agreement, which will span over a ten year period, will see Keepmoat developing
sites along the City Link Road, and sites in the market towns over the next two years, with
further development planned over further years.

The Keepmoat Ltd bid was submitted in conjunction with a number of partner
organisations including Keepmoat Regeneration Engie, WMs Housing, Herefordshire
Housing Ltd and City Heart.

Councillor Harry Bramer, cabinet member contracts and assets said:

“The partnership will go much further than the delivery of new homes. It will also promote
economic growth across the county through a number of initiatives including developing a
strong local supply chain with at least 50 percent of suppliers and contractors coming
from within Herefordshire.

The council will also retain its ability to raise capital from the council’s land holdings,
whilst controlling the nature, speed and character of the county’s development.

Keepmoat will provide support for local businesses, third sector groups and the
community as well as improving skills and educational attainment through training and
apprenticeships. This, in turn will enable the development of new economic activity to
address the problem of low wages in the county.”

Peter Hindley, CEO of Keepmoat Homes, added:

“We’re excited at the prospect of working with Herefordshire Council over the next 10
years, or more, to deliver much needed high quality new homes across the county.

We are also committed to a significant Community Investment programme, including
sourcing local talent and creating opportunities for employment and training for local
people.

This is a perfect example of how our business model of working in close partnership with local authorities, housing associations and other delivery partners can accelerate home building and improve local communities.” 

The partnership is to launch a programme of wider regeneration initiatives in March 2018 with the first new homes expected to be delivered early in summer 2019.

BN note: HFC chairman Ken Kinnersley mentioned Keepmoat during the Club AGM last Monday.

"People know the Blackfriars is a potential redevelopment site which is in the hands of the Council with their preferred development partner Keepmoat," said Kinnersley.
"We are in constant communication with both Keepmoat and the Council over the Blackfriars End.
"It is fairly high on their priority for re-development. What will be built there we don't know yet."

HUST To Ask For Nominations For HFC Board Member


Following the meeting last Monday between the board of HUST and the board of HFC, HUST are expected to ask for nominations for a member to be put forward for the HFC board.

Martin Watson quit the HFC board earlier this month and so HUST has the opportunity to propose someone to take his place.

The HUST Nominated Director (HND) Policy states that any HUST member can have their name put forward as long as they have been a member for at least twelve months.

'In order to be considered as a HND candidates must be nominated by two HUST members and complete a nomination form and candidate statement.

'Responsibilty for selecting the HND rests with the Society Board who will discuss the nominations at a board meeting. A decision as to appointments will be made afterwards.'

Interestingly the appointment can only be made by the HUST board, however should the HND not prove suitable a vote of no confidence would be required by the members to remove the HND.

The policy in full can be read at: http://www.hufctrust.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/HUST-Nominated-Director-Policy.pdf
