The trip to Bridgwater on Saturday is the Bulls’ first Saturday away match in a month.
The host club have confirmed they will have enhanced stewarding arrangements in place for tomorrows game after consultation with the FA and Southern League.
The discussions follow on from recent incidents at some FA Cup and FA Trophy matches involving Hereford FC this season.
Club CEO Ken Kinnersley noted: “It is clear that clubs are now being asked to provide a more robust approach to stewarding this season for the safety of all supporters. As part of this the Police involved have been exchanging information between forces and with host clubs regarding potential issues.
“Bridgwater have also informed us that they will also be enforcing the bans Hereford FC issued to three people in relation to Edgar Street earlier this month. Furthermore, Bishops Cleeve met with Gloucestershire Police this week over their plans which include employing stewards used by Cheltenham Town for the match on December 27th.
“We’ve been heartened that our actions have been well received by supporters and we will continue to strive to ensure that our matches are played at grounds that can be considered safe family environments for all to enjoy the match. With the decision by tomorrows hosts we advise those who are subject to current Hereford FC bans not to try to gain admission at Bridgwater. Any of those concerned who do, or attempt to gain entry will have the current Hereford FC ban reviewed by the Directors.“
