It is scarcely year and a half since Hereford United’s presence arrived at an end, ended up in London’s Royal Court of Justice in December 2014 for non-installment of bills.
At the point when the re-shaped club come back to the capital interestingly since this Sunday, it will be to join in a much more satisfied event, playing at Wembley in the FA Vase last.
Hereford FC play Northumberland side Morpeth Town in the first of the two matches to be organized on Wembley’s first twofold charged Non-League Finals Day, before advanced Grimsby Town tackling consigned National League rivals Halifax Town in the FA Trophy last.
Furthermore, the opportunity to play at the national stadium will be the satisfaction of a fantasy that never worked out for most Bulls fans.
Amid the old club’s past 90-year history, they may have broadly beaten Newcastle United in the FA Cup in 1972, yet they never figured out how to make it to Wembley. But Hereford FC will go there in their first season. Maybe that is just due prize for all that the forbearing yet inspiringly resolved Bulls fans have needed to experience to get right up ’til today.
They saw the previous FA Cup giantkillers slip into monetary trouble, be assumed control by London specialist Tommy Agombar, then consigned two divisions in June 2014 for neglecting to pay their bills, weeks in the wake of finishing a close inexplicable last day break to evade transfer from the Conference Premier.
A convoluted force battle between the fans and Agombar followed, with the old Hereford United mulling in the Southern League – the seventh level of English football – when they were at last ended up with obligations of £148,000 in December 2014.
By that guide group were down toward around 500, while most fans stayed away in challenge at the way the club was being run.
