Hitchin Town 1 Arlesey Town 0

Monday, August 26 2013

A healthy Bank Holiday crowd of 502 saw Hitchin dominate local rivals Arlesey Town in a disciplined and hard working performance that contained plenty of excellent passing moves. It was a real team effort with every player working for each other and while Callum Donnelly was named man of the match for an inspirational captain's performance there were plenty of other worthy candidates.

The opening quarter of the game saw Hitchin pepper Nathan Abbey in the Arlesey goal. Simon Martin was just wide with a lob while Donnelly forced a good save before Jamal Lowe headed wide. Hitchin forced a number of corners as Arlesey struggled to get in the game and Michael Noone Robbie Burns and Martin came close to scoring. The deserved goal arrived on 37 minutes as Donnelly added a good finish after Noone's shot was blocked and he came close again just before half time. Stuart Pearson had to be replaced after 28 minutes with Matt Lench coming on and Josh Bickerstaff moving in to the centre back position but this did not disrupt Hitchin's organisation.
 
While Arlesey came more in to the game in the second half Tahj Bell remained largely a spectator in the Hitchin goal and Hitchin still created the better chances. In the 83rd minute sub Michael King headed against the bar and had a shot saved soon after, while in injury time Robbie Burns shot hit the post as Hitchin remained in control to the end to pick up 3 very well deserved points.
 
Manager Mark Burke saluted what he thought was a polished performance that he feels sets the team up for the rest of the season and was particularly pleased with a third clean sheet out of four as he has wanted to build from the back as a priority.

Hitchin: Bell, Rolfe, Bickerstaff, Noone, Ann, Pearson, McGeorge, Donnelly, Martin, Burns, Lowe, Subs Barker for Noone  69, Lench for Pearson 28, King for Donnelly 79, Lockhart-Adams, Gregson.
 
Arlesey: N Abbey, Tavernier, Abraham, Pemberton, Frater, Maltay, Powell, Galbraith, Farrell, Hayles, McNamara, Subs Forsythe for Farrell 46, Osdei- Siribour for  Powell 73, Browne for McNamara 46, Z Abbey , Lawrence.
