Hereford United have come to the aid of one of their smaller neighbours by letting them use Edgar Street as a home ground.

Complete Music Hellenic League side Pegasus Juniors have struck a deal with the Bulls to use Edgar Street as a base for the rest of the season -- providing there is no clash of dates.

Pegasus have played there twice already and have three more games scheduled there this season -- the next being against Bicester Town on April 15.

United stepped in after Pegasus ran into ground difficulties following their Division One title triumph last season.

Their normal home at the Essex Arms --just a stone's throw from Edgar Street --does not meet Premier Division requirements as there are no floodlights.

Having then moved in at Hereford Leisure Centre, they hit another snag as there is no covered accommodation there. The club is currently negotiating with Hereford Racecourse to build a small stand.

Pegasus have subsquently had to play 'home' games on their opponents' grounds or borrow neighbours Westfields' Rotherwas ground. They still have those options if their home games clash with Hereford's.

Pegasus spokesman Kevin Bishop said: "We are very grateful for the helping hand they have given in coping with the difficult situation we are in."

It's not the first time that Pegasus shared Edgar Street -- they did so in their early years, and for a spell in the late 1980s.

One of their stars during that period was a certain Ian Rodgerson, who was snapped up by the Bulls and went on to enjoy a lengthy Football League career before returning to Hereford.

Crowds have been slow to catch on so far, but Pegasus hope that a few United fans at a loose end may come along and watch them.

Bishop added: "We would like to see a few more down there, particularly as we are providing a reasonable level of soccer."
