A ROAD in Hereford was blocked as football fans appeared to clash after a match at Edgar Street.

Hereford FC played against AFC Telford United at Edgar Street which looked to boost their play-off hopes with a second win in 10 matches.

But after Hereford beat Telford 1-0 fans visiting from the neighbouring town caused a ruckus in the city’s streets.

A video shows a group of Telford fans in the middle of the road in Widemarsh Street while they shouted abuse at Hereford fans.


There was a heavy police presence at the game on Good Friday, but the match itself was relatively trouble-free.

Telford fans let off a smoke bomb before kick-off, with police also blocking Widemarsh Street around 2.45pm, believed to be so fans could be escorted from the city centre to the ground.

West Mercia Police has been approached for comment.
