Who said the romance of the FA Cup was dead? Clearly nobody had told the 1287 supporters who crammed into Top Field on Saturday to witness Hitchin Town draw with Leatherhead in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup.
For the second time in just over a week, North Herts FM are taking to the road to bring live commentary of the replay from Fetcham Grove, Leatherhead. A game that will be decided on the night with extra time and penalties, if required, to separate the winners with a place in the First Round at home to National League Solihull Moors the prize.
Whether you’re a Hitchin Town supporter, Leatherhead supporter or a neutral, if you are unable to get to the game but would love to follow the action and savour the atmosphere then North Herts FM from 7:30pm on Wednesday 24 October 2018 is the place to be. Kick off at 7:45pm.
Freddie Cardy, Brian Gray and Patrick Sloan will be your hosts for the evening taking you through a roller coaster of emotions as Hitchin Town battle to be the only Evostik Southern Premier Central Division club to make it to the 2018/19 FA Cup First Round.
