Hi all

Does anyone know if there was an issue for the game on 11 December, 1968?

Thanks

John

Hi mate,
I'm not aware that there was a game in 1968. I'm missing that friendly from 1966 and noticed a Hereford v Swansea from 11/12/66 but was advertised as a Welsh Cup game which it definately wasn't..... i bid on ebay for it but missed the end as i was working and it went for £43 in the end .... if I'm wrong please let me know because it confused the hell out of me lol

tbh, I'm not 100% sure, however I'm missing a Hereford v Swansea friendly programme from 1966 ( date unknown) and I'm not missing nor do i have a friendly for 1968 .... the date 11th December though does make me think it was 66 from the ebay listing ...... do you collect Hereford or Swansea programmes?

According to newspaper reports, on 11/12/68 Hereford played Swansea to celebrate the opening of the floodlights at Edgar Street, Hereford winning 3-2.

11/12/66 fell on a Sunday so I wouldn't think a game would have been played on that date in that era. Swansea and Hereford were drawn against Cardiff and Ammandford respectively in the 5th round of the Welsh Cup during December so I'm a little unsure of this programmes description.
