[edit] Village places

Shobdon has a football team, Shobdon F.C, which is situated near Shobdon Aerodrome and aero club. They are currently in the Hereford Times League 1. The village also has a primary school with no more than 55 children going there. When the children leave Shobdon Primary most of them go to either Weobly, Knighton or Wigmore High School.

[edit] Football team

The football team are currently sitting in the middle of the Hereford Times League 1. They aren't a very largely known team but they did recently get into the Herefordshire junior cup final but lost to Pegusus Juniors F.C. The game was played at Westfields F.C. They also got into the Leominster cup semi-final but lost. It didn't go into extra time or penalties as the team playing against Shobdon had scored more goals than Shobdon by the 90th minute. The team play in dark blue shirts with light blue trim.

[edit] Village pubs

The village of Shobdon has two pubs, the Aero Club by the air field and the Bateman Arms. Although the Bateman Arms is more up market than the Aero Club and a lot bigger, the aero club used to be a World War II air raid shelter and the airfield was used in The Blitz as well.

[edit] History

In the 17th century the village of Shobdon was run by the Bateman family (hence the Bateman Arms). They were living in Shobdon Court.
