Leominster Clubs and Societies

Leominster Town Football Club

Leominster Town Football Club was officially formed in 1893 as a founding member of the Herefordshire Football Association, although there are press records suggesting that it existed as an entity prior to this.

The Club won the first ever HFA Junior Cup beating Worcester Excelsior 5 – 2 at Edgar Street (Hereford United’s ground). The team travelled to Hereford by train and on its return was met by the Town band who led them in procession through the Town.
