Hitchin Town 6 Codicote 0

Monday, April 3 2017

This was a night when the result was less important than the funds raised for Sands. Hitchin and Codicote had agreed to play each other in the aftermath of the Alfie Barker twitter storm and an excellent crowd of 202 justified the timing of the game.
Manager Mark Burke was keen for the game to take place as he wanted to give much needed game time to certain squad players ahead of the run in but still fielded a very strong starting eleven. It was good to see the return of Martin Bennett in goal while Conor Clarke, Kieran Barnes, Mason Spence, Liam Brooks and Michael King all played the full 90 minutes.
There was always going to be a gulf in class as Hitchin were three divisions higher than Codicote and half time was reached with a 5-0 score line. King opened the scoring after 10 minutes finishing off an excellent pass from Clarke and added a second on 19 minutes. Jay Dowie cleverly found Jonny McNamara whose shot was fumbled by keeper Andrew McEwan to King who finished with ease.
Callum Donnelly added the third with a good finish from McNamara’s pass before Brooks scored the fourth from Dowie’s set up. Then King completed his hat trick after another fumble from McEwan.
In the second half Josh Coley replaced McNamara and Callum Riley replaced Matt Lench. Only one further goal was scored when Brooks finished from a short corner after 60 minutes.  Sam Swanson replaced Bennett in goal. 
Credit to Codicote who worked hard to match their higher level opponents. It was good to see ex-Hitchin favourite Paul Barnes turn out because it was for  charity after two years without playing while other familiar names in the Codicote team included Joel Mason and Bobby Dance while another ex-Hitchin player Steve Young is the manager.
In the end Hitchin had a worthwhile run out but more importantly £950 was raised for Sands.
