  • Hereford tried to reply and George Lloyd held the ball up for Elliot Richards who shot at the goalkeeper.
  • York looked the sharper side and Alex Harris just saw his shot sail over after a corner came back out to him.
  • Burrow should have doubled the hosts' lead after 29 minutes when goalkeeper Yates flapped at a corner and the forward could only head wide from a yard out.
  • It took debutant James Waite just three minutes to have his first chance at goal as he flicked a Richards cross into the side-netting.
  • Wes York should had another golden chance for York as Greenslade missed a ball across the box leaving the home player open to tap home, but he missed the ball.
