Langford 0 Hitchin Town 2

Saturday, July 16 2016

Hitchin eased back into action with a straightforward 2-0 win over Langford as some genuine summer weather coincided with the start of the pre-season programme.

Mark Burke fielded strong line-ups in both halves and an upset was never likely against South Midlands League opposition. Hitchin lined up with Johnson in goal and the only unfamiliar faces were Hull in central defence and McBride on the wing.

Even before Hitchin opened the scoring, Lench - whose prompting was impressive - sent a free kick wide and Donnelly tried an ambitious overhead kick. The opening goal did arrive just after the half hour and was neatly converted by Brooks at the far post.

The second half saw a number of substitutions by both sides as well as an enforced change of referee. Hitchin welcomed Zac Barrett in goal and also saw Sam Barker return to the side. Encouragingly though Stuart Pearson was one of the players who came back out after the break and put in an encouraging hour at full back to give the manager good defensive options for the new season. 

Langford were at their most energetic straight after the break but Hitchin held firm and a second goal arrived just after the hour. The home keeper could only parry a long shot and Alfie Barker was on hand to convert.

The Canaries could've added to the total, with the ball ricocheting around the Langford area at one point. However they coped well with the opposition and the warm conditions to encourage the good turn out of Canary fans.  The next friendly sees Hitchin on the road again on Tuesday at newly promoted Kempston Rovers.

First half: Johnson, Pearson, Payne, Lench, Hull, Bickerstaff, McBride, Donnelly, Brooks, Kirkpatrick, Barnes
Second half: Barrett, Pearson, Webb, Bickerstaff, Walster, Sam Barker, Kirkpatrick, Brooks, Donnelly, Lench, Alfie Barker
Second half subs: Mulholland, Coley, Forsythe
Goals: Brooks, Alfie Barker
