Evesham United 1 Hitchin Town 0

Sunday, December 4 2011

It was a case of the "first win for the Mohican" as new Evesham manager Matt Clarke inspired his team to victory and a season’s double over Hitchin.

Clarke’s hairstyle may have been unusual, but his team was fairly orthodox in its tactics in an instantly forgettable game.

It was Sunday and an air of ambivalence seemed to hang over deserted St.Georges Lane. You could almost imagine tumbleweed rolling across the terraces of a ground that has seen better days.

Evesham went ahead on 10 minutes when a high ball to the far post was met by central defender  Will Richards and directed past Martin Bennett.

The first half was dire stuff and Hitchin scarcely looked like finding the back of the net. Tom Pepper’s cross just eluded Tony Fontenelle and a Callum Donnelly half chance was saved by goalkeeper Daniel Platt, but that was about it.

Hitchin came out in better shape in the second period but copious amounts of possession did not translate into goalscoring opportunities and without John Frendo, who was completing his two-match suspension, Hitchin’s frontline was toothless.

Zak Burke sprung to life in the 48th minute and saw his shot from just inside the area saved by Platt. But Evesham also had their chances, notably when Ben Mackey volleyed over from close range. And Bennett prevented Lewis Pountney from scoring with a brave save at the feet of the Evesham substitute.

Hitchin’s greatest threat came from Fontenelle, who  created openings for Alasan Ann and Burke, but both occasion failed to raise the pulse of the Evesham defence.
