A SINGER-songwriter has penned a track about Hereford United's FA Cup hero Ronnie Radford.

The Ballad of Ronnie Radford, Harry Harris says, tells the story of one of the most famous goals in FA Cup history when Radford scored from 30 yards to help the Bulls knock-out Newcastle United in 1972.

"I had that song on You Tube, and a director of Hereford United’s wife found it and asked me to play at the 40th anniversary of the game as a surprise for Ronnie and the whole team – that was a really lovely day, and we just kept in touch," said Harris.

"Ronnie sent me letters and we approached him about the documentary, and he was very receptive."

Directed by Franis Newall and Matt Diegan, The Ballad of Ronnie Radford is the first single from Harris' second album, Songs About Other People, which is out now on Wild Sound Recordings.
