History

Hereford FC, formed in 2015 from the dissolution of Hereford United, made an immediate impact in non-league football. Playing at the historic Edgar Street and retaining the nickname ‘The Bulls’, the club joined the Midland Football League for the 2015/16 season. Their debut season was marked by a league and cup double and winning the Herefordshire FA County Challenge Cup, culminating in a significant turnout of 21,000 supporters at the FA Vase final at Wembley.

The momentum continued with Hereford FC winning the Southern League South & West title in their second season with 107 points, retaining the Herefordshire FA County Challenge Cup, and winning a ‘Champions v Champions’ match against Royston Town. The club achieved a hat-trick of promotions by clinching the Southern League Premier title in 2017/18, advancing into The National League setup. This season also featured their best FA Cup run since reforming, including a notable match against Fleetwood Town.

Adjusting to the National League North posed challenges, with several managerial changes and mid-to-lower table finishes. The 2020/21 season saw a run to the FA Trophy final at Wembley. Improvement came in the 2021/22 season with a mid-table finish. A memorable highlight in the first half of the 2022/23 season was a televised FA Cup match against Portsmouth, following shortly after the passing of Hereford United legend Ronnie Radford.
