Our latest issue is at the printers this week so we thought it was high time we reminded you of how you can get your hands on a copy of Talking Bull, the Independent Hereford Football Club Supporters’ Magazine.

First up though, a bit more about the first issue of a new season that sees the Bulls promoted to the Evo-Stik Southern League Division One – South & West, following the clubs MFL triumph last term.

It’s another season opener ‘bumper’ 56-page issue, which is jam packed with fascinating new features and exclusive interviews.

Chris BarkerIn Issue 105, we speak to the Hereford Football Club boss Peter Beadle ahead of the Southern League challenge, we meet new player-coach Chris Barker, return to the heady days of 1976, Simon Wright considers whether idealism or commercialism is best, we look back on Hawkesbury 1 Ronaldo’s big day out at Wembley, and we get to talk to Pablo Haysham, Mike Symons and Rob Purdie.

Also inside this edition of Talking Bull, Steve Hughes insists we have reasons to be cheerful, whilst Tom Reed says the EFL Trophy is insulting, unsporting and worst of all – thick. Bill Thomas wants us to help England, Ian Mann provides us with his comprehensive ‘Good Pub Guide’ as we travel across the south-west of England, and thanks to Dave Baker, Jon Mather, Simon Wright and Andy Lawrence we have the very best inside track on all those new Southern League grounds we’re due to visit in the next two months.

Steve Niblett looks back at another of his favourite photos, we wonder who has been the ‘Best of British’, and has the Bulls’ giant-killing feat over Newcastle United been superseded, and we also get to read your glorious letters, plus much, much more.

The edition will first go on sale ahead of the Mangotsfield United match at Edgar Street tomorrow, and on Saturday, 13 August prior to the Bulls’ league match against Bridgwater Town. So, don’t miss out, get your copy early!

ShortwoodIssue 105 will also be available to purchase at Shortwood United on Tuesday, 16 August, as Hereford FC embark on their second away journey of the campaign.

The all new Talking Bull is full colour throughout and is packed from cover to cover thanks to the many, many supporters who have contributed over the last couple of months.

A number of familiar writers have returned to the fold, but we welcome a number of fans who have written for the magazine for the very first time. Other well known contributors include club historian Ron Parrott, ‘Talking’ Bill Thomas, Richard Tomkins aka The Village Idiot, plus Simon & Glynis Wright amongst others.
