First effort on goal by Lucas Kirkpatrick but easily saved by St Albans keeper.
CLOSE - Will Wright flicks over from a Hitchin corner.
CLOSE - St Albans freekick hits the Hitchin woodwork
CLOSE again - St Albans header just wide from a corner
SAVE - Spence effort saved by the keeper ... then missed chance by McNamara when well placed.
HALF TIME St Albans 0 Hitchin 0 - given as good as we've got again so far.

Back under way. This will go to extra time as its a semi final!
Header wide by Gardiner for hosts from a long throw, then Brooks shoots over for Hitchin.
SUB Burns for Bickerstaff

GOAL! 1-0 to the Canaries as Brooks sets up McNamara who finishes neatly.

CLOSE - Spence just fails to turn in a Kane cross.

SUBS - Brett and Callum for Brooks and Walster

CLOSE - Brett just fails to get onto a McNamara cross.
Late pressure from St Albans but Johnson saves from a late header.
FINAL SCORE St Albans 0 Hitchin 1 - another deserved win at Clarence Park!

Well done lads, another brilliant result.

:clap: :clap: :clap:

As a Brucie Bonus, Chippenham were held 1-1 by Kings Langley this evening in the league, needing a late own goal to get the one point.

We played well tonight and with no fear.
Very well played boys and when was the last time we got to two County Cup Finals in the same season?
Bring on Frome.

Tremendous performance. Focused and we worked hard. Had some good chances before the goal came, but we thoroughly deserved this. The gap between National League South and Southern League Premier was not noticeable.

Steve in answer to your question:

The last time we were in both the Herts Senior Cup and Herts Charity Cup finals in the same season was 1976-77. We won both cups that season and ironically we beat Stortford in the final of the Herts Senior Cup. (We beat Snorbuns in the final of the Herts Charity Cup).

Very sorry I am unable to be present but following every Twitter update with baited breath.

Well done to everyone again.

(Did Chesham's top 5 league challenge end at St Neots last night losing 4-1)

From the St Albans Fans forum:

"We had a strong side out last night as we did in Senior cup game and were massively outplayed again."

And from the Herts Advertiser:

"The final 20 minutes saw Town’s Johnson make a wonder save to deny Sam Merson’s downwards header ..."

Again Hitchin wre the ones who played football while St Albans relied on long balls and throws into the box, Overall their finishing was poor and MJ had a strong game again.
I thought their right winger was their most impressive player but even he failed to deliver a telling final pass.
Lets hope we can make the trophy cabinet groan under the weight of silverware at the end of the season.
