“With ‘one of our own’ Darren Moore, taking over the reins of the first team, following the departure of Alan Pardew, albeit, only to the end of this disappointing season, I’m sure all of the Association members will want to wish Darren all the best in his efforts with the first team until the campaign draws to a close.

As usual, the Associations members were out on force in the East Stand suites, with Paul Raven, Ian Hamilton, Dennis Clarke, Mickey Fudge, Joe Mayo and Graham Williams, all involved in various Corporate activities,

On the other side of the Shrine, Association President Brendon Batson OBE, MBE, fresh from his strength sapping Charity cycle ride, and Treasurer Norman Westbury, were joined by former Assistant manager Colin Addison, eighties striker Derek Monaghan and friend of the Association, former Hereford United goal-keeper Peter Isaac. There were also representatives of the charity ‘Sports Connections Foundation, in conjunction with the club’s Foundation Day, and the PFA, all we are pleased to say, enjoying a stimulating performance from the team, against a Swansea side striving to avoid relegation.”
