  4. Bulls say 'thank you' to parade crowds

    The chairman of Hereford FC says the players and club officials were "truly humbled" by the response from the crowds as they took an open-topped bus tour of the city yesterday.

    Jon Hale says after the disappointment of losing the FA Vase final it was "the perfect tonic for them to celebrate their winning three trophies and promotion with supporters".

    Quote Message: It has been fantastic to see such huge crowds at Edgar Street plus big followings away, to see so many families coming to games, to see schools and community groups engaging with the club and – of course – to see the many thousands of people making the trip to Wembley to support Hereford FC." from Jon Hale
