THE Herefordshire FA will be celebrating 125 years with an anniversary game at Edgar Street.

A Herefordshire Select 11 will take on a predominately England C Team on the evening of February 12.

The Herefordshire Football League was one of the innovations of the HFA which had been founded six years previously, on October 21, 1893.

At a meeting at the Mansion House in Widemarsh Street, representatives of clubs within and outside the county boundary gathered to form the new association which would affiliate to the Birmingham and District FA.

Founder members, according to the HFA website, were Berwick Rangers, Bircher, Bromyard Excelsior, Builth, Builth Juniors, Hereford, Hereford Thistle, Hereford Early Closers, Hereford Juniors, Kington, Ledbury United, Leominster, Ludlow, Much Marcle, Pencombe, Peterchurch, Presteigne Town, Rhayader, Ross, Silver Stars, Tenbury, Tupsley, Whitfield, Worcester Excelsior and Worcester Rovers.

Details for the Herefordshire select 11 team are due to be released next week.

The semi-final of the HFA County Challenge Cup was drawn last week and will see Westfields host the winner of Ewyas Harold against Kingstone.

The other tie will see Pegasus Juniors host either Lads Club or Bartestree.

Dates for both ties are yet to be confirmed. The final will once again be played at Edgar Street on a date to be agreed.
