HINTON say that drawing Hereford FC at Broomy Hill in the Herefordshire County Challenge Cup is a ‘dream tie’ for the club.

The Herefordshire Premier side welcome their National League North city counterparts next Wednesday (October 16) for their second-round match.

Hinton manager Stuart Jones says that the game is the perfect tie as the club try to raise funds for a new clubhouse.

“It’s a dream tie for us,” said Jones.

“We played them four or five years ago so to get them again so quickly is good.

“With the greatest respect to the Herefordshire Premier sides we know we’re not going to win it even if we get to the quarter or semi-finals so we were hoping to draw Hereford in the first round.

“It would have been nice to play at Edgar Street but we didn’t really want to be chasing that ball for 90 minutes on that pitch.

“We’re hoping for the biggest crowd we can at Broomy Hill as it’s a big opportunity to raise funds for a club our size.

“We are trying to raise money for the club house and changing room which it will help towards that.”

With players in the Bulls squad looking for match time a strong squad could feature at Broomy Hill.

“I think we know what the outcome on the pitch is going to be,” added Jones.

“But we're looking forward to getting out there whatever the team Hereford play.

“We know whatever the team they put out that it will be a massive ask for us to compete with.

“I don’t’ think many of the starting 11 will start but we know that they have got a big squad. They have a lot of players trying to get back into the team who might be selected for this occasion and the under-18s.

“We will do our upmost to make sure it is as competitive as possible.”
