Lambs v Bulls - a little bit of history

Monday Sep 23, 2019

 This will be the first time we have played the reincarnated Hereford FC who were formed out of the ashes of Hereford United who went out of business in 2014. 


 The reformed club were placed in the Midland Football league and have seen rapid promotions to the National League North, which they achieved by winning the Southern Premier League at the end of the 2017/18 season. In the first season at this level they finished in 17th place.

 Tamworth v Hereford Utd had become a regular fixture when the Lambs were promoted to the National League (the Conference) and they were the first side to visit the Lamb following our promotion in 2002. On that occasion the Bulls got the better of the Lambs in front of 2250 supporters winning 3- 1 with Mark Cooper grabbing the goal for Tamworth. In total the teams have played each other 11 times (10 league and one Campkin Cup game in 1969) with the Lambs winning 3 times, there have been 2 draws and Hereford have won 6 games. On the last occasion the teams played each other the Lambs came out on top 1 - 0 at home on Friday 18th April 2014 in front of a gate of 1154. Tamworth lined up as follows: Belford C, Evans J, Reindorf, Richards-Everton, Kerry, Thornton, Caprice, Peniket, Woolery, Batis-Cande, Keane. Lloyd Kerry was the Tamworth goalscorer.

 At the end of the 2013/14 season Tamworth were relegated and shortly afterwards Hereford Utd went out of business. 

 Moving on to the this season the Bulls currently sit in 11th place in the NL North and they reached the 3Q Round by beating Truro City at home 5 - 2. Two Hereford players that will need no introduction to Tamworth supporters are Reece Styche and Kyle Finn.
