Blue Square Bet launch Hereford United Ronnie Redford Competition

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.

Blue Square Bet PR Manager Alan Alger said: “Ronnie Radford’s goal against Newcastle is arguably the ultimate FA Cup moment and as title sponsor of the Football Conference we wanted to celebrate this and make a positive difference to the club’s current financial situation at the same time.

“We’re encouraging as many fans as possible to enjoy the chance to recreate Ronnie’s goal and help their club out.”

Hereford United chairman David Keyte added: “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.”
