With the league season now having come to an end, Edgar Street is set to open it’s doors to the community with a number of matches taking place over the coming 10 days.
Monday sees Hereford FC take on Lads Club in the Final of the Herefordshire FC County Challenge Cup, and although being played at the home of The Bulls, technically the match is being played on a ‘neutral’ venue, ‘hired’ by the Herefordshire Football Association for the occasion.
On Tuesday there are two games set to take place, the first being the Final of the English Colleges Football Association Cup, followed by a Ladies charity game hoping to raise plenty of money for four terrific causes, Macmillan, Coppafeel, NHS Umbrella Fund and The Royal Marsden Centre.
Wednesday sees another Charity game taking place, this time raising funds for Cancer Research, whilst Thursday and Friday evening will see the girls Finals take place ahead of the boys junior finals on Saturday and Sunday.
On Friday morning, staff, volunteers and directors from Hereford FC will take on a Hereford FC Sponsors side in a charity game that hopes to raise close to £1,000 to be shared between the Midlands Air Ambulance and St Michaels Hospice.
Then on Tuesday and Wednesday the following week, there will be a series of Schools Finals taking place on the pitch, all before works start on the Edgar Street pitch on Friday 12th May.
In total, it is expected that there will be over 40 individual matches taking place over the next fortnight, ranging from 5v5 to full sized games, and over 600 boys, girls and adults will have the chance to run out on the famous Edgar Street pitch!
