Hitchin Town 4 Arlesey Town 0

Tuesday, November 18 2008

Almost one year since Darran Hay made the slightly controversial move from Arlesey to Hitchin, his team gave no hint that they were to be “giant-killed” by their BGB Division One visitors. In fact, the Blues barely made an impression on the Hitchin defence.

Nevertheless, with Hitchin suffering a downturn in home form this season, any victory for the locals is welcome and this tie provided some much-needed confidence for Hay’s men.

The first half, however, was highlighted by a bizarre first goal for Hitchin in the 29th minute, an own goal by Tawhid Juneja after Ian Hilaire had robbed goalkeeper James Russell and played the ball tamely across goal. Priot to that Hitchin had wasted a string of chances, Hilaire, Tom Pepper and Paul Barnes all had good chances to open the scoring. Arlesey’s only opportunity fell to Hames Osbourne, whose shot was well saved by Martin Bennett.
Hitchin increased their lead after 59 minutes, Danny Payne playing the ball across field and Danny Charge shooting in off the post.

Paul Barnes, eager to score against his old club, went on a long run that ended just in front of goal. Former Hitchin man Richard Pringle should have pulled a goal back for Arlesey when he missed an easy chance at the far post.

But Hitchin sealed victory in the 80th minute when the Arlesey defence failed to clear the ball and Russell Bull, pushed the ball over the line from close range.

The scoring was completed a minute from time by Charge, who shot home from just inside the area to put some gloss on the scoreline for Hitchin. The Canaries now meet Cambridge City in the second round on December 2 at Top Field.
