Aylesbury 1 Hitchin Town 3

Saturday, February 26 2011

Charlie Williams was right – there are no nerves at Hitchin. At least, that’s what it looked like at Aylesbury, where the Canaries came from behind to earn three very valuable and morale-boosting points against the side in fourth place in the Zamaretto Central Division.

It couldn’t have been a worse start to the afternoon, however, as a former Hitchin player , Ricky Miller, fired home after three minutes from a Jamie Eames cross.

Miller was always dangerous in a first half that was very difficult for the Canaries. Ieuan Lewis and Richard Howell both shot wide and Callum Donnelly – who had an excellent game along with his midfield partner Louis Lee – shot over after a Jamie Arlick cross. Just before the break, Zak Burke saw his shot well saved by Aylesbury keeper Steve Smith.

Hitchin continued to press in the second half, with Lewis shooting over the bar and further efforts from Burke and Howell. After something of a let off when Aylesbury’s Kieran Schmidt saw his shot land on the roof of the net, the Canaries finally equalized in the 62nd minute when Howell shot come after a defensive slip and good work by Donnelly.

Hitchin’s confidence grew immediately but it was a late flurry that won them the game. In the 83rd minute, a Howell corner was not cleared by the Aylesbury defence and the ball landed invitingly for Lewis, who made no mistake.

Three minutes later, Hitchin scored again, Burke finding Howell who applied an excellent finish.

With the Canaries’ rivals denied the chance to play owing to the weather, this win put further pressure on the chasers. And with this game a very big hurdle for Williams’ men, coming home from Haywood Way with three points provides a big psychological boost.

There was another plus for Williams in the performance of new signing Josh Bickerstaff. He was drafted in after signing from Stotfold and Tom Pepper failed a fitness test.
