HEREFORD United’s scheduled friendly match against Sinkums has been cancelled, the Hereford Times can confirm.

The Hereford Times Herefordshire League Division Two minnows were due to play Jon Taylor’s United on Wednesday night under floodlights at Edgar Street.

But Sinkums’ manager Tony Chadwick has been contacted by United and told the friendly has been cancelled ‘due to unforeseen circumstances’.

Remarkably, Hereford United have not yet played a home pre-season friendly this summer in front of a paying public at Edgar Street.
