The Goal.

Runs for: 140 minutes.
Event runs on 1/10/2018 to – 13/10/2018.

The Courtyard in partnership with Hereford Football Club are launching a special Herefordshire theatrical project based on the legendary goal scored by Ronnie Radford in 1972.

Ask most people of a certain age and they’ll tell you where they were on November 22nd 1963, when news of JFK’s assassination spread throughout the world. They might even know their whereabouts on 30th July 1966 when the people on the pitch thought it was all over… or July 20th 1969, when Neil Armstrong took his giant leap for mankind.

But how about February 5th, 1972? The day a joiner from West Yorkshire lashed a glorious 35-yard shot past a despairing keeper and into the corner of the net at the Meadow End, helping Hereford United to an historic FA Cup 3rd round victory over Newcastle United?

Chris, Bob, Dan, Yorkie, Twig and Brian do… they were right there, just like they were for all the Bulls’ games. Six kids with passion, belief and ill-fitting tracksuits – the ball boys!

THE GOAL is their story – of that season on the touchlines at Edgar Street watching their heroes, getting to know each other, swapping stories, secrets and more with the audience and each other.

Six actors play a cast of thousands in a bittersweet comedy as Hereford Courtyard celebrates one of the most monumental seasons in the town club’s history… and the town itself.

It might just remind you where you were when you first saw… the Goal.
