Hitchin Town 0 Luton Town 1

Tuesday, August 2 2016

Hitchin completed their pre-season programme with a narrow defeat against a Luton side which featured nine players who had been involved in  their first team squad. Again it was a very encouraging performance from Hitchin and in the first half they played flowing football that had Luton on the back foot. Hitchin were creating most of the chances and when Luton took the lead it was against the run of play.
 
Will Wright forced a save after just four minutes while Dan Webb headed wide from a corner. Robbie Burns headed just over and Matt Lench came close as Hitchin were dominant in the first 25 minutes. It was therefore a surprise when on 35 minutes Freddie Hinds provided the cross for Isaac Vassell to turn and despatch an excellent shot in to the corner of the net. Hitchin had come across Vassell before when he was playing for Truro.
 
In the second half Luton raised their game and it was noticeable how they closed Hitchin down much quicker and the Canaries found it much harder to create any meaningful chances. Mark Burke also ended up using all 21 of his squad which affected the flow of their football. It was Luton who came closest to another goal and Michael Johnson made a good save from Tyreeq Bakinson.
 
The game was watched by an excellent crowd of 640 as again the pay what you want initiative proved to be a success. Luton manager Nathan Jones was in attendance along with Mick Harford while ex Canary Stuart Hammond was reporting on the game in his new role as head of media at Luton.
 
So next up it is the first league game on Saturday at home to Cinderford and if Hitchin play the quality of football they have in the friendlies there should be plenty for supporters to look forward to.
 
Team: Barrett, Wright, Walster, S Barker, Webb, Rolfe, Lench, C Donnelly, Brooks, Burns, Kirkpatrick,
Subs: (all used) Johnson, Spence, Pearson, Payne,  Barnes, Coley, A Barker, McBride, Riley, Bryant
 
Attendance: 640
