Hereford away.

Post by The Commander »

Reading the preview of Saturday's match at Hereford reminded me that it was 50 years ago since that day in '72 when my late brother and myself set off on Boxing Day in my old Ford 100E for the long trip to Edgar St. We soon realised that unlike today, there were very few, if any, petrol stations open. Luckily i kept a can of Esso Blue in the boot as the old side valve would run on a mixture when times were hard. It saved the day and we landed in Hereford in a haze of blue smoke. Don't remember much about the game apart from a big crowd but was surprised to hear it was over 10,000.
