Wales secure three points
Wales have won their second match in the Unibond Four Nations Tournament, beating Scotland 2-1.

Hereford United's Tony James and Paul Parry featured in the match which puts Wales second in the table, two points behind the Republic of Ireland, on four points. The two meet in the final match. England have just two points, whilst Scotland have yet to open their account. The final games are played on Saturday.

After a slow start Wales played very good football in the second half of the match. They took the lead against Scotland in the 57-minute when Gary Lloyd scored direct from a free kick. Wales increased their lead in the 82-minute when Graham Evans, who had replaced Marc Lloyd-Williams scored following a very good move. Like in the England match Scotland scored their only goal in the third minute of injury time.

In tonight's other game, England lost 2-1 against Ireland, leaving the Irish needing just a draw from Saturday's game against Wales at Boston United, kick off 2pm, to win the championship. However, a Welsh win would see them take the Trophy. Only Wales or Ireland are still in with a shout of securing glory!

Wales robbed of win
Hereford United's Tony James and Paul Parry helped Wales to a 1-1 draw against England in the Unibond Four Nations Tournament at Boston United tonight.

An attendance of just 404 turned out for the game which Wales led from the sixty sixth minute though Neil O'Brien. A Simon Weatherstone goal three minutes into added time equalised for the English.

Gavin Williams, who recently moved from Hereford to Yeovil, also started in the Welsh team.

Turner confirms Bentley interest
Hereford United chairman Graham Turner has confirmed that the Bulls have spoken to Telford United defender Jim Bentley.

Bentley's signature will be a coup for the Edgar Street club, as at least two other Football League clubs are thought to have discussed terms with him. Today's Shropshire Star said that a decision on Bentley's future is imminent.

United have yet to sign a player this summer, but lost Gavin Williams to Yeovil Town last week. "They made him an outstanding personal offer," said Turner, although it is thought that Hereford matched the contract financially.

Meanwhile, Halifax Town have been accepted to the Conference for next season following a meeting of officials on Friday.

Gav out - to Yeovil
Yeovil Town have confirmed that Hereford United attacker Gavin Williams has signed for the Huish Park club.

The 21 year old Welshman had been offered a new contract at Hereford, it is thought which 'matched' his terms at Yeovil. However, he has chosen a move away from Edgar Street.

United should receive a fee from Yeovil for the move as Williams is not eligible for a free transfer under the Bosman ruling.
One in, one to stay?
Hereford United could be set to make their first summer signing, and retain a crucial player.

Telford United's out of contract defender Jim Bentley has been linked to the club, but the Bulls will fight with two un-named Division Two sides for his signature. Bentley, age 26, was the second top scorer at Bucks Head last season.

Hereford attacker Gavin Williams could also be set to stay at the club. Despite the financial crisis, the Bulls have said they 'will match' whatever he is offered by Yeovil Town, who were thought to be close to his signature.

Meanwhile, last night's meeting at the Richmond Club saw the vast majority of the audience vote to find out more about Supporters Direct. More on the story soon (when I get around to writing it up!).
