Hitchin Town were contacted two weeks ago by Hemel Hempstead requesting the opportunity to talk to Matt Spring about joining them as Assistant Manager. Matt considered the offer and agreed he would be committed to Hitchin for the immediate future and would still be with us up to the Solihull Moors match.

Matt has decided to take the position of Assistant Manager at Hemel but will remain registered with Hitchin as a player and could possibly play for us this season if he is required and available.

Mark Burke said:

“I would like to thank Matt for the valuable contribution he has made both as a player and coach to the Club. He has brought a new level of professionalism to the Club and we have all benefitted from his experience. I would like to wish him the best of luck on his new venture into management and hopefully we will be seeing him again in the near future.”
