Tribute to Sjt McAlleese

Just before the start of this afternoon's match two wreaths were laid in the centre of the Edgar Street pitch in memory of Sjt Paul McAleese who recently lost his life whilst serving in Afghanistan.

The wreaths were laid by members of his family,

A one minute silence was observed by both sets of fans.

Bucket collections were held both inside and outside the ground on behalf of the Help The Heroes Fund and Sjt McAleese's young son.

Many supporters contributed to the cause.

Update Sunday: Thousands of pounds were raised yesterday by the collection in the centre of Hereford and at the football ground according to the BBC.

Half of the money will go to a trust fund set up for Sjt McAleese's baby son, Charley.

The rest will go to Help for Heroes, a charity that supports wounded soldiers.
