Hereford United 8 Bromyard Town 1

AS expected, Hereford made light work of their county rivals in this HFA Senior Floodlit Invitation Cup first round clash.

Strike pair Tim Sills and Marcus Palmer bagged two goals apiece with Phil Gulliver, Jordan Fitzpatrick, Luke Webb and a Joe Maidment own goal accounting for the others.

Substitute Aaron Blake set up Chris Allen for Bromyard's consolation goal but by that stage the Town side were already seven goals adrift.
