What a tremendous day the Rob Purdie Testimonial turned out to be. The positive atmosphere around Edgar Street was tangible right from the early morning as the volunteers, staff and players began to assemble.

The crowd of 1,525 thoroughly enjoyed the match and it was great to see so many ex Hereford United and Hereford FC faces again.

I even got drenched on the pitch during the half-time crossbar challenge…

Congratulations to @bobbypurdie and every single volunteer who made the testimonial such a HUGE success. It was fabulous to see such a terrific crowd raising funds for charity and providing such a positive welcome to players proud to wear the shirt.
