Hereford Lads Club

Chairmans Statement

For season 23/24 Lads Club will be fielding some 27 teams covering both Junior Boys and Girls, disability and adult football.  

Established in 1925 we are proud of our heritage of inclusion and family ties none more so than myself. My father played and then coached at Lads Club and I followed a similar path coaching my initial U7 side right the way through into adult football. In my role as Chairman my team and I are committed to taking this great club even further forward. 

About Hereford Lads Club

The Hereford Lads Club was founded in 1925 for under privileged boys by Mr J Mackay with the aim of providing young boys with the means to become men through sport, emphasising gentlemanly conduct and good sportsmanship, and originally catered for gymnastics and boxing before developing junior football teams.
In January 1940 Hereford Lads Club was destroyed by fire and sadly all early records were lost.  Thankfully the club was rebuilt on its present site overlooking Widemarsh Common after the land was generously donated by Mr W R Bufton together with donations from many local businessmen. In the 1960s and 1970s Hereford Lads Club blossomed and was attended by as many as 170 young people per night, creating a great community spirit.
