The former Hereford United chairman, director of football and manager Graham Turner will be back in the Edgar Street dug-out as part of the coaching staff for the Rob Purdie Testimonial match on Sunday, 12 May.

Turner, 71, has attended a number of Hereford FC games since the new club was founded – but not in the hot-seat – and will return to his old haunts alongside former fitness guru, Tony Ford, the Bulls ex player and physiotherapist Ian Rodgerson and kitman John Lawley. Turner will be coaching the Hereford United XI in the match.

The coaching staff for Hereford FC has also been confirmed, with former kitman Roger Lloyd and current Sports Therapist Jonny Evans agreeing to take to the bench once more.

Over 1,000 tickets for the match have already been sold, and although pay-on-the-day will be available on match-day, supporters have a chance to buy or collect their pre-purchased tickets directly from Rob Purdie who will be manning the ticket-office from 11am until 1pm tomorrow, Saturday 4 May.
