Winner of Spot the Ball Competition 4, HUST member from Coventry, Eugene Austin accompanied by his wife Jane, received a cheque for £61.50 from competition organiser Peter Davies at the Hereford FC Open Day on 29 July. 

Ex goalkeeper Eugene played for Coventry Sporting in the Southern League against Hereford United the year after the Bulls famous victory over Newcastle United.  He later played for Bedworth United and Atherstone Town. 

Hearing of United’s liquidation and the formation of Hereford FC, Eugene joined HUST and has supported the Trust’s drive to gain a 50% shareholding in the club by participating in the Bulls 500 Club, Bulls Lotto, Spot the Ball Competition, and by making donations, including his winnings from the Spot the Ball Competition. 

With several of Hereford FC’s matches being nearer to Coventry in the coming season, Eugene is looking forward to backing the Bulls in several away matches as well as making the trip to Hereford whenever possible. 

The current Spot the Ball Competition closes on Saturday 12 August.  Entry is easy via the HUST website (  The more fans that take part, the greater the prize fund.  

So why not have a go and help the Trust raise funds to buy shares in the club?
