Frome Town 0 Hitchin Town 4

Saturday, September 5 2015

While Frome had conceded 12 goals in their 3 previous league games new manager Nick Bunyard had signed three new players subsequently and was looking according to his programme notes to ‘’focus defensively on being harder to break down and not making any unforced errors’’ , so Hitchin knew they would be in for a challenging game. Indeed in the first ten minutes Hitchin were rather sloppy despite Alasan Ann heading a Sam Barker free kick just over the bar in the second minute.

But the game changed in the 16th minute with a magical strike from Robbie Burns as his 25 yard free kick arrowed in to the top right hand corner of Darren Chitty’s goal, giving the keeper no chance. Just one minute later it was Burns again as a corner was not cleared and he smashed home a close range shot. Suddenly sloppiness was replaced with style as Hitchin began to play their attractive football and backing it up with a really high work rate.

Jonny McNamara burst through only to be thwarted by Chitty but another clever goal gave Hitchin a 3-0 lead in the 25th minute. A Barker free kick was back headed in to the top corner by Ann who had another dominant game.

Frome were shell shocked and rarely caused the Hitchin defence any problems with Charlie Horlock having a quiet afternoon. Ann nearly scored again before half time with a header that Chitty saved at the expense of a corner.

Strangely the first ten minutes of the second half were again rather sloppy with Horlock making his best save of the game tipping over a header from Steve Hulbert. But eventually Hitchin settled down and added a fourth when Dan Webb headed on a free kick and McNamara gobbled up the chance on 63 minutes.

The game was now over as a contest but Hitchin were still the most dangerous side. Jack Boyd made his debut after 72 minutes and made a good start to his career coming close to scoring when Chitty made a good save from his shot. Will Wright also came on and looked very assured as Hitchin finished well on top. Indeed it is reassuring to see the depth of Mark Burke’s squad as on the day Stuart Pearson was getting married and Matt Lench was unavailable and the bench was still strong.

The win moved Hitchin to fifth in the table but Burke will ensure the team keep their feet on the ground and continue to work hard. However confidence is high and Hitchin have every reason to look forward to the rest of the season.
