On 5 February 1972, non-league Hereford United entertained First Division Newcastle United at Edgar Street.
The FA Cup Third Round Replay was taking place after The Bulls had pulled off a shock 2-2 draw at St. James' Park and, with a potential shock in the offing, the television cameras were in place. No-one really expected the non-league outfit to match the big boys from Tyneside, but after 120 minutes of game time, the country had witnessed one of the most memorable giant-killing feats in living memory.
Having spoken with the team at Hereford FC during the tail-end of last season, I was pleased to be asked to create two pieces of artwork commemorating the heroics of 1972.
Poster 1: Watercolour
The first design is created in a mono watercolour style and shows the scenes of celebration with the Hereford supporters racing onto the pitch to celebrate Ronnie Radford's winner. The image is offset by a red block featuring typography to match the club's colours.
Poster 2: Typography
The second poster design utilises black typography against a red background to create a silhouette of Ronnie Radford and is offset against bold white typography.
Each artwork is available in both A3 and A2 format and can also be purchased on mugs and tea towels.
