Win £500 – Can you ‘do a Radford’?

With the second round proper of the FA Cup taking place this weekend, thought we’d bring you something a little bit more nostalgic on this fine Friday.

Football Conference sponsor Blue Square Bet is giving Hereford United an FA Cup themed cash boost ahead of their local derby clash with Cheltenham Town next Monday.

The bookmaker is challenging fans to recreate Ronnie Radford’s iconic 1972 FA Cup goal against Newcastle and for every fan who finds the top corner they’ll pledge £500 towards the club’s future.


Hereford boss Martin Foyle will be joined by club legend Colin Addison, player/manager from that famous day forty years ago, to kick off “The Ronnie Radford Challenge” in style at Edgar Street.

Hereford United chairman David Keyte said: “This is a great gesture from Blue Square Bet and it promises to be a day to remember for the club ahead of our crunch FA Cup tie on Monday. “We’re asking fans to join us from 1.30pm on Friday and are encouraging them to bring their boots and of course wear their Hereford shirts. Fans should report to the Supporters’ Bar.”
