Ronald Radford was an English footballer who notably scored an outstanding goal in the 1971–72 FA Cup for Hereford United during their shock 2–1 giant-killing of Newcastle United.
The much-postponed replay at Edgar Street was played on a quagmire of a pitch in front of a capacity crowd.
The match was being covered by the BBC with a young John Motson commentating.
It was originally scheduled for a small slot on Match of the Day later that evening.
