Born out of the ashes of Hereford United, Hereford FC were placed in the Midland Football League for the 2015/16 season after the former club folded in December 2014.
Hereford United famed for the 1972 FA Cup victory over Newcastle United and that Ronnie Radford goal had been blighted by financial issues for the final years of their existence, facing winding up petitions in the Court nearly twenty times during the last two years.
The club’s varying owners were in open disagreement with the majority of the support over the final few months, and the end came as a relief to many albeit tinged with much sadness.
Playing out of the historic Edgar Street Athletic Ground that hosted a string of Hereford clubs in the 1920s before Hereford United was formed from a merger of local sides, the new club have retained the nickname The Bulls, the white shirts, and the Herefordshire Bull on the club crest even parading the real thing at their first competitive match in August and later at Wembley for the FA Vase Final.
The Bulls have already started writing their own history by setting a string of Midland Football League attendance records, starting with their first game, and breaking ground attendance records at several away grounds as they took the Midland Football League double along with the Herefordshire FA County Challenge Cup in their first season a year finished off with taking over 20,000 supporters to Wembley in the FA Vase Final.
The second season saw Hereford race to the Southern League South & West title, winning the league with a total of 107 points, beating second place Salisbury by 18 points.
The 2016/17 season also The Bulls win the Herefordshire FA Challenge cup for the second season in a row, as well as beating the winners of the Southern League Central division, Royston Town in the end of season ‘Champions’ vs ‘Champions’ match.
