HEREFORD FC are looking to have a minute's applause to pay tribute to Bulls giantkiller Mick McLaughlin prior to Saturday's game against Brocton.

McLaughlin, who was part of the Hereford United side that beat Newcastle United in the FA Cup in 1972, died on Sunday, aged 72.

Colin Addison, who was the Hereford player-manager for that infamous game, said it is a lovely gesture.

"There is a suggestion that there will be a minute's applause prior to Saturday's game," said Addison.

"I spoke to George Webb [Hereford FC director] yesterday and he asked me to contact the family to see if they are happy with it.

"I'm waiting to confirm it, but the suggestion of one of the family members was that it was a fine gestute."

"They are hopeful of coming to the match."

Saturday's game at Edgar Street is an FA Vase third round encounter.

Kick-off is 3pm.
