HEREFORD FC will host 13-time Welsh Champions The New Saints (TNS) in a friendly match at Edgar Street on Saturday.

The game will be played behind closed doors due to Covid-19 regulations and will kick-off at 1pm.

TNS won eight Welsh Premier league titles in a row between 2012 and 2019.

 The New Saints are currently preparing for their UEFA Europa League qualification tie against B36 Tórshavn of the Faroe Islands.

TNS recently beat MSK Zilina 3-1 after extra-time in the first qualifying round.

“It will be a good game for the boys and a big test,” said Hereford manager Josh Gowling

“These are the kind of games the lads want to play in against higher opposition so I’m definitely looking forward to it.”
