50/50 Draw Tickets Even more lucky winners!

Congratulations to our brilliant supporters who won prizes at our last 2 home Vase games both against Leicester Nirvana. These include Anne Griffiths, Derek Prosser, Duncan Hill, Chris Tong, Marian Mogg, Simon Davis, John Mokler and Alan Fellows. Claiming second price from the Coventry Sphinx game was Carol Willetts, Jamie’s mum who has promised to buy me a drink!

Thank you to all who buy tickets and match sales are gaining momentum with sales to date at around £24,000. It is only £1 to buy a ticket and half the profit goes in prizes with the remainder going to HUST towards its share purchase in Hereford FC.

We have a willing and enthusiastic band of sellers encouraging you to part with your money but a few more helpers would be welcome so that we can maximize this important income. Ideally we would like to have a long list of volunteers so that sellers can be put on a rota, the more the merrier! If you would like to help and sell tickets on home match days between 1.30pm and 2.50pm, as we don’t want anyone missing the action on the pitch, then please contact Mike Langford at
