Hitchin Town 0 Hemel Hempstead Town 2

Hemel too good for Canaries in Herts Charity Cup

A rampant display from Hemel Hempstead Town saw off competition from Mark Burke's Hitchin Town under the floodlights on Monday evening.  The Tudors, who reside above in the National League South, ran out 2-0 winners at Top Field, leaving Saturday's defeat to Chesham long in the memory. 

However, Dean Brennan's men didn't have it all their own way in the first half; Jonny McNamara causing havoc at times with their defence.  Spectators at Top Field that evening only had to wait 3 minutes until McNamara was pretending he was Maradona, with a surging run which took him round 3 of Hemel's defenders before being knocked off the ball, arguably for a penalty.

Hitchin's best move of the match came in the 32nd minute; and what a goal it would have been.  After sneaking past his defender, Matt Lench set-up teammate Lucas Kirkpatrick, on the edge of the area, who almost saw his cross turned in spectacularly with an over-head kick, which only just went over. 

Despite these chances, it would be Hemel Hempstead who would go into the half-time break with the lead.  Hemel's attackers had been relentless all game and their hard work paid off in the 38th minute.  With time in his hands, Mo Sharriff lifted a beautiful pass into Hitchin's box, which was knocked on to Willie Gnomore, who laced the ball home from close range; 0-1 at the interval.

The second half came, and so did the storm.  The reds raised the bar even higher after the break and should have doubled their tally with 20 minutes to go. Following some good work up the right-hand-side from former Hitchin player, Jamal Lowe, his efforts went to waste when seeing his pass blazed over from 8 yards. 

However, it was Lowe who was to have the last laugh; rifling into the bottom corner from outside the box after being teed up by the game's man of the match, Willie Gnomore in the 87th minute. Hitchin 0-2 Hemel Hempstead, the final score.
