Potters Bar Town 2 Hitchin Town 3

Tuesday, August 13 2013

Despite the close scoreline this was in fact an emphatic Hitchin victory with only two late goals taking some of the gloss off the best performance of the pre-season period.

It built on a behind closed doors 6-1 thrashing of Letchworth on Saturday and there were many positives. Many players had their best game so far and while much work remains to be done confidence has been boosted greatly. Simon Martin made an impressive start to his Hitchin career adding experience and know how up front while new centre back Stuart Pearson was also one to catch the eye.

But the game had a disastrous start as Potter Bar were awarded a dubious penalty after just 9 minutes when Dan Webb was harshly adjudged to have brought down James Gershfield. Justice was done when Gershfield's penalty hit the bar and went over. This led to Hitchin dominating the rest of the half.

Michael Noone and Matt Lench both came close and Lench made several penetrating runs. Martin opened the scoring on 26 minutes from close range after good work from Lench and Burns. It was a brilliant 25 yard free kick from 25 yards from Burns that doubled the lead as Hithin continued to dominate.

Webb scored the third with a powerful header from a corner after 63 minutes and this was after Martin hit the bar and Burns had also come close. Sam Barker replaced Lench and Alasan Ann replaced Martin but Hitchin remained on top.

It was a real surprise when Chris Doyle shot home on 83 minutes and Danny Laurent added a second on 90 minutes.and while this will concern Mark Burke and Adam Parker they will have been hugely encouraged by the overall performance.
