Hitchin Town 2 Letchworth Garden City Eagles 1

Saturday, July 12 2014

First match of the season, non-competitive and played over 4 x 22 minute quarters, resulted in a narrow “victory” for Hitchin Town at The Arena, Baldock. Details that could be determined from the game are as follows:

First Quarter:
Starting eleven: Bell, Rolfe, Pearson, Ann, Corran, McNamara, McNulty, Lench, Jones, Burns, Brett Donnelly.
Nearest Hitchin came to scoring was when a point blank drive by left back David Corran was beaten away by the Letchworth ‘keeper. Trialist Kyle McNulty has previously played for Banbury United and Arlesey Town.
Score after first quarter: Hitchin Town 0 Letchworth GCE 0

Second Quarter:
Hitchin line up consisted of squad members Michael King and Lucas Kirkpatrick. Shaun Okojie from last season’s squad also figured…the rest of the eleven were made up of trialists including Andrew Osei-Siribour, who scored Arlesey’s equaliser against Hitchin in the FA Cup last season, and Stefan Powell, also a member of the Arlesey Town squad last season.
Hitchin scored after about 19 minutes of this quarter from a nice 15 yards shot from Michael King,
Score after second quarter: Hitchin Town 1 Letchworth GCE 0

Third Quarter:
A couple of changes were made from the team that started the first quarter. A trialist GK (name unknown) substituted for Tahj Bell, Scott Gilzean substituted for Kyle McNulty, and Matt Lench and Lewis Rolfe swopped over with Lench moving to Right Back in a flat back four, and Lewis Rolfe moving to midfield.
Letchworth scored about two minutes after the start of the quarter, when their striker stooped low to head in from point-blank range after Hitchin failed to clear a cross.
Michael King subbed for Brett Donnelly about half way through this quarter,
Score after third quarter: Hitchin Town 1 Letchworth GCE 1

Fourth Quarter:
Back to mostly trialists, inspired by Lucas Kirkpatrick who had moved into his usual midfield position from right back. McNulty also returned in midfield, and Scott Gilzean continued. Hitchin fielded a third trialist goalkeeper (name unknown).
Hitchin score their second goal from a brave header by Marcus Campbell, who got to a cross before the Letchworth keeper and defender.
Score at end of game: Hitchin 2 Letchworth GCE 1

So a useful test for Hitchin from Letchworth GCE. Sadly we didn’t see an appearance from their star striker and former Hitchin manager Carl Williams (who is running the London 10km. race tomorrow), although he did turn up to lend moral support to his team.
Referee: Mr. Peter Parkins
Attendance: c.40
