FLASHBACK: Hereford run riot at New Street

FLASHBACK: Hereford run riot at New Street
We look back to the last pre-season friendly between Ledbury Town and Hereford United which took place on Tuesday, July 8, 2008.

The Bulls totally changed their line up for each period:

Hereford United: (first half) Nick Jordan; Paul Read, Karl Broadhurst, Garry Breen, Kris Taylor; Jack McLeod, Ben Smith, Kieran Forbes, Matty Done; Steve Guinan, Bradley Hudson-Odoi.

Hereford United: (second half) Craig Sansom; Chris Thomas, Mula Sako, Dean Beckwith, Kevin Rose; Sam Gwynne, Toumani Diagouraga, Paul Fowler, Clint Easton; Simon Johnson, Craig Moses.

Graham Turner used the match to field a wealth of triallists, many of whom failed to impress during their short spell at Edgar Street.

However, United still proved far too strong for their county opponents racing into a 6-0 half-time lead.

Steve Guinan opened the scoring with a neat lob, before Kris Taylor struck the second from a free-kick.

More was to come as United found it too easy to unlock the Town defence.

Guinan bagged his second of the night from the penalty spot, after being tumbled in the box.

A fine low cross from Taylor on the left then fell to the feet of midfielder Ben Smith who made no mistake on the half-hour mark to make it 4-0.



Up popped Bradley Hudson-Odoi to calmly slot home the fifth prior to a barnstorming finish from Smith who slammed home off the underside of the cross-bar.

After the break Matty Done showed excellent close control and composure to make it seven after breaking in from the left flank.

Simon Johnson and triallist Craig Moses were at this point partnered together up front and the two combined shortly afterwards to score the Bulls' eighth.

Johnson got in on the act with swivelled shot on the turn that nested nicely in the back of the home net, and Sam Gwynne completed the rout nudging home a goalbound effort from Moses as time ran out.

Ledbury Town 0, Hereford United 10.

Goalscorers: Smith (2), Guinan (2), Taylor, Hudson-Odoi, Done, Johnson, Moses, and Gwynne.

Attendance: 375 (unofficial)
