Bulls trip for Blues

The Blues are likely to play in front of their biggest crowd of the season as they travel to Hereford on Tuesday.

The Bulls are averaging 2,436 at Edgar Street this season, with last week’s 3-0 home win against Banbury United being watched by a crowd of almost 3,000.

Formed in the summer of 2015 ago after a fan boycott led to the closure of Hereford United, it’s been a stroll in the park for the new Bulls.

Their first season saw them win the Midlands League and the FA Vase, and they hardly paused as they lifted the Southern League South & West title with an 18 point margin over Salisbury.

In a league where half the teams posted at least one double digit crowd, Hereford’s travelling support saw their hosts record season high attendances in alnost all of their away games as they remained unbeaten on the road .

That success has continued this season as they reached the second round of the FA Cup and the last 32 of the FA Trophy and their 4-2 win at Farnborough on Saturday saw them move up to third place with 65 points from 27games and matches in hand against the rest of the top four.
