  • Cinderford Town AFC 1 Hereford FC 0
  • 66) A back-pass to the Hereford trialist, who allows Ethan Moore in and he fires past the goalkeeper
  • After dominating the opening period striker Rowan Liburd went close to taking the lead after Tom Owen-Evans squared the ball from the byline, but the striker blazed his effort over.
  • Liburd had two more chances in the first 15 minutes, firstly heading Reece Styche's cross wide and then being denied by a last ditch defensive header.
  • However, with Cinderford's first effort they almost took the lead when Ethan Moore sent a free header over from a corner.
  • Hereford's new goalkeeper Brandon Hall was forced into action after 37 minutes after Marley Thomas broke quickly and then shot across the stopper who saved well.
  • In a much changed second half team Martin Riley saw his free header fly wide after 56 minutes.
  • Trialist (believed to be Simeon May) was denied an almost certain goal by a last ditch block at one end before making a defensive block at the other.
  • After showing danger signs in the first half Moore capitalised on a defensive error by a trialist to put his side into a 66th minute lead.
  • Hereford tried to respond and Jacob Jagger-Cane came close with a stinging effort just over the bar.
  • However, Cinderford also looked dangerous on the break and Craig Norman should have doubled their lead but steered his effort over.
  • Hereford first half: Hall, Trialist, Trialist, Thomas, Cullinane-Liburd, Gowling, Reffell, Owen-Evans, Liburd, Styche, Finn
  • Subs: Davies, Jagger-Cane, O'Sullivan, Riley, Bray, Davies-Austin, Kamilo, Powell
  • Second half: Hall, Thomas, Trialist, Riley, Trialist, Bray, Jagger-Cane, Trialist, O'Sullivan, Reffell, Bishop
  • So that's five trialists on show tonight.
  • We believe that number 19 who is playing in the second half is Simon May
  • Cinderford: Dibble, Turl, Trialist, Sheehan, Angel, Lewis, Norman, Watkins, Moore, Hunt, Thomas
  • Subs: Andy, Wood, Simpson, Rhodes, Alder, James, Waugh
