The former Hereford legend Rob Purdie is looking forward to a “really competitive” testimonial match between a Hereford FC and Hereford United side on Sunday, 12th May.

Tickets are already selling well, but Purdie wants to raise as much money as possible for charities including the Adam Stansfield Foundation, and is hoping for at least a four-figure attendance.

The match carries a 1:30pm kick-off time to both enable the players to travel to Edgar Street from right across the country, and to ensure the pre-match hospitality is a success.
