MARKSMAN Harry White steered Hereford to their first victory on the road this season and made it seven points from three games for the Bulls.

The 23-year-old, from Stratford, has hit the ground running this campaign after netting during the Bulls’ opening game against Blyth Spartans and then the winner at Curzon Ashton.

It wasn’t until the 79th minute when White peeled away from his marker and volleyed home Jamie Bird’s cross that the deadlock was broken and Hereford hung on for the victory.

“I was waiting for that one chance to come up all game and I had to be patient but it came,” said White following 1-0 the victory.

“I managed to get across my man and it’s one of them where I just had to steer it on target. I looked back and it was in.

“A lot of the time you are fighting against the two centre halves which I don’t mind doing to be fair. That will become easier when I’m at my peak of fitness, we’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing."

The Bulls were stuck in M6 motorway traffic which almost made them late for the game arriving at 2.15pm.

White said that impacted on their performance.

He added: “I don’t want to use excuses but we got here quite late and it was a tough journey up around country roads which took about four and a half hours.

“It was going to take us a while to get into the game but the second half was quality for all the lads and we’re buzzing to get the three points.

After playing for a struggling Chester City side last season White says that he is loving life at Edgar Street.

He added: “I’m loving it here and it’s good to relax going into every game knowing that we’ve got the backing of our fans.

“Even on Monday night when things weren’t going our way they were still singing and spurring us on.

“It’s so important to get off to a good start and it gives you so much confidence and being involved in a winning team where you are getting chances gives you something to thrive on.

“The good thing about this team is that everyone can score and we’re going to give it a good go this year. With big games coming up we’ve just got to take it game by game.”

White will face his former side on Bank Holiday Monday when the Bulls travel to Chester FC’s Deva Stadium two days after hosting Bradford Park Avenue.

“Hopefully the game on Saturday before it isn’t too hard but that will be great to go back there and hopefully get the win. I’d love to get on the goal sheet too,” added White.
