Hitchin Town were almost ready to embark on their journey to Edgar Street for a fixture against Hereford United scheduled for 20 December 2014. Unfortunately on 19 December a number of years of turmoil at the former league club came to a head and Hereford United were wound up in court. During the remainder of 2014/15 plans were hatched for a phoenix club - not least when the club's supporters visited Top Field on the final day of that season (when the return league fixture should have taken place) to play a fundraising friendly against the Canaries. 

Hereford FC took their place in the Midlands League for 2015/16 and in their brief life have won both of their league campaigns to date, as well as making an FA Vase Final appearance!

Hitchin Town only played Hereford United four times but those games will remain in Canary fans' memories. In November 1994 the Canaries pulled off their first major FA Cup upset when they followed up a 2-2 draw at Edgar Street with a 4-2 replay win at Top Field against the Bulls.

Hereford had dropped into the Conference by the time of the other two encounters - in the FA Trophy - in 1998. Again a draw (1-1) away meant a replay at Top Field and the Canaries came out 2-1 winners on the way to the fifth round.
