WADERS PLAY TO THEIR OWN BEAT!!
BIGGLESWADE TOWN 0 v HEREFORD 1
Report by Mike Draxler
A special evening not necessarily for the football, but the whole atmosphere, electric. 740 packed into the Langford Road Stadium to see potential champions Hereford take on the Waders. Debutant keeper Patrick Sinfield, signed only hours before kick off gave a good account of himself, faced with Herford's Lennison Myric-Williams bearing down on him, Patrick spread himself to deny the pacey forward. A huge crowd behind him with a lone drummer did not disturb his concentration. For one so young, impressive.
The whole game was combative, Hereford big and strong against a never say die Waders team. Defences won the day with Connor Hall showing the way denying the Hereford forwards clear sight of goal.
The only goal of the game came in the 41st minute as a Myric-Williams was adjudged upended in the box. The resulting, debatable penalty was taken and converted by Rob Purdie.
It was end to end with both sets of forwards smothered by equally competent defences. Enjoyable to the 90 as Hereford ran out winners to take the title. Over the season well deserved but both games, home and away have been tight affairs, Hereford running out winners on both by the odd goal.
So much has been rumoured about Hereford supporters, judged on last evening, friendly, smiling and joy to have visit the Langford Road. The drummer added to the occasion, the singing superb. Well done Hereford and we wish you well on your continuing journey.
