AFTER 74 years watching Hereford from the terraces Brian Symonds hopes to watch his side win at Wembley for the first time on Saturday.

The 89-year-old started watching Hereford United in 1947 when the likes of Charlie Thompson, Reggie Bowen and Jimmy Duggan were the household names in the city.

Mr Symonds has fond memories of standing on the Len Weston end and that the players used to get changed at the swimming baths on Edgar Street before crossing the road to the ground.

He will join the lucky 3,000 Hereford fans who have bought a ticket in the sold-out Hereford end for the big final.
