HEREFORD took their first win of pre-season with a convincing display and four goals at Malvern Town.

Just three days after losing to Arsenal under-23s the Bulls rested their senior players and started six trialists and their younger squad members.

However, the Bulls started quickly breaking away and a trialists giving them a second minute lead.

Kieron Blackburn was kept busy in the Malvern goal until the 19th minute when another quick break resulted in a second trialist finding the net.

Hereford made a host of changes on the hour mark brining on their senior players.

It took them until the 83rd minute to increase their lead with Luke Haines heading home a Harry Pinchard cross to make it 3-0.

Three minutes later the scoring was complete with Ryan McLean seeing his shot parried to Miles Storey.

"It was good to see some goals as there hasn't been a lot lately," said Hereford manager Josh Gowling talking to Keith Hall.

"It was good to see even the trialists, we do work on the training pitch and you can see they are dialled in, they've done it and got their rewards from it.

"It's really pleasing, a couple of trialists really caught the eye today with some goals and assists.

"It was really pleasing as a whole. We want to play football, get the ball down and play attractive football.

"The lads will be disappointed (that they didn't score more), but we have to be more clinical.

"If we're going to get into them areas more this year then we've got to be more clinical in front of goal."
