Pompey Draw Hereford Bulls

Pompey Draw Hereford Bulls


Tonight's Caring Cup 2nd Round draw pitches League Two side Hereford United against Premiership Pompey.

Seeded Pompey came out of the hat first to secure a 2nd Round clash with conquerors of Charlton Athletic, Hereford United in a game to take place at Fratton Park in the week commencing August 24.

Pompey have only faced Hereford nine times in competitive fixtures, with the most recent match also being in the league cup in 1983/84 in which Pompey won a two legged tie 5-4 on aggregate.

Prior to that, two apiece from Alan Biley and Billy Rafferty saw Pompey progress as 4-1 victors to the 2nd Round of the FA Cup in November 1982.

Famous players that have transferred between the two clubs include Bobby Kellard, Steve Davey, Colin Sullivan, Joe Laidlaw, Peter Mellor, Phil Roberts, Derek Showers and Roy Smith.

Whereas Paul Gilchrist, Chris Price and Kevin Russell wore both the blue of Pompey and white of Hereford in between spells elsewhere.

No disrespect meant but the draw should allow us to play some Academy pleyrs and (hopefully) still progress to the third round

My brother lives in Hereford - he says it's a nice place with lots of fish and chip shops. I like fish and chips and I've tasted some of the local cider/perry which was very nice. So, all in all, I'm very happy with the draw.

just hope that the chairman shows a good head and puts the price of tickets down to 10 or 15 quid instead of 25-30 if it is the later we can expect a record low crowd for a few years. lets hope the see sense and make it a packed fratton park at a bargain price.

Hussler I would expect Pompey to continue with their Carling Cup policy and make it £20 for Adults £5 for uner 16's.. I'm sure when the fixture is arranged we'll hear something along those lines

Hussler My 'paid' job has nothing to do with Pompey whatsoever.. but the Vital network keeps me busy at other times.. Basically I am a Pompey Historian who can bore the pants off anybody (excpet Easneydave as he know more than me) anyday of the week .. Do I get paid ?.. for some things publications but not for my writing for Vital or Pompeyrama.. I love the research and have an extensive library of all things Pompey.. as for shifts.. nah nothing like that the four of us (Rug Dave me and Paultsmouth)_ all seen to have our own certain specialities and they don't clash and on the whole we manage to keep you guys up to date with whats going on. The thing about Vital Pompey for me is that the four of us (collectively) are (i'd say) more connected and more knowledgable than any other Pomepy site I've EVER seen and only a few other club site (with huge resources) can actually challenge us .. The Oatcake (Stoke) and YNWA (Liverpool ) are fantastic sites.. as is Vital Man City and Vital Spurs.. although the readership there leaves something to the imagination. Basically for me I collect information about Pompey and I like to share it .. Eastneydave's motivation (which I think is great) is to have his research as a google respopnse for every plauyer that ever payed for Pompey.. And he is a fiar way towards doing that.. anyway off to bed now . the kids get up at 6 !!

I've never been to an away fixture but that would have been perfect. All the same, I have a feeling it will be a good match as Hereford will feel Pompey are there for the taking. I just hope we are up for it. The cups are just a sideshow this season from what will be a tense, pressured, league campaign

As far as draws go, it doesn't get much easier than that (no offence to Hereford). If we don't get into the 3rd round, there'll be a major uproar.
