Pre-Season Friendly – Merthyr Town v Hereford FC

July 18, 2015 @ 15:00 - 17:00

MerthyrHereford Football Club will make the short trip to the Cigg-e Stadium, Merthyr on Saturday, 18th July for a prestigious friendly.

Fresh from collecting the Southern League South & West trophy as champions the Martyrs will provide tough opposition for the Bulls.

In a terrific gesture both clubs have agreed that gate receipts will be shared between the two clubs. This comes after a number of Hereford Supporters Trust members visited their opponents stadium on fact-finding missions over the last year and have built up a close working relationship.

Merthyr also have a strong connection on the field with Hereford, manager Steve Jenkins was assistant manager in 2013/14. Assistant manager Gavin Williams and club captain Ryan Green have both played for the club and are fans favourites.

Football secretary Jamie Mack believes the game will attract a large attendance: “The match will be one of Hereford FC’s first games as a newly formed club. Representatives from both clubs have been in contact for some time with Hereford keen to learn from our experience having gone through a similar turn of events as we did five years ago. Representatives from both clubs have been discussing this match for some time, and we are delighted to announce the date.”
