A beer glass and a pork pie. Not what I expected to bring home from a football match today.

Hereford  2 –  0  Buxton

This was a good day. I sold a few 50/50 tickets – ok more than a few thanks to the many decent people on this list and elsewhere. I was based in or near the HUST table where Tony Taylor was flogging a few glasses cheaply. I couldn’t resist. When exiled bull Nick Ratcliffe kindly bought me a pork pie, I couldn’t resist that either. Consumed now nick and most tasty indeed.

I was surrounded by supping, affable Hereford followers and I had the realisation this is where I want to be. With Clan Hereford. No longer will I be watching a Black Country club. So many great people here who were more than happy to say hello. This place is special and ultimately the reason why I have been engaged in Hereford related work every day this week. Heavens I will even be an official volunteer soon..

The game? Ah so typical step 2. Hustle, block, punt, make mistakes, fall over.. At first I thought Buxton had a defensive wall which wouldn’t be breached while their attack sometimes danced through our back four with short passes. But they ran out of steam, looked old and slow – with the exception of their new signing Levi Andoh . What did he go there for?

Once our regular goal scoring Defender Haines found the net, the points were heading our way. Pinches clincher made for a very comfortable last few minutes. Luxury..

What an excellent crowd today. The extra hundreds do wonders for our finances. If you can. please keep coming. You all make a difference.
