Match rewind: Hereford United

This weekend’s match replay travels back 17 years to a ding-dong battle at Edgar Street when promotion hopefuls Hereford United took on a Fleet side struggling to gain a toehold at the beginning of the 2003/04 season.

Resurfacing some 40-year-old footage

Somewhat grainy and perhaps not too easy on the eye in this video-on-demand generation, but these match highlights from four decades ago are one of the earliest surviving film records of Stonebridge Road. Not quite as old as this brief footage from a 1957 match between the Fleet and Kettering Town (3-2 to the Fleet…
