It is fair to say that I am on cloud nine at the moment. On Saturday I was at Wembley to see my first club Luton win the play-off final and that was followed by a cluster of further key signings being secured as I aim to build on the momentum we achieved at the end of last season. This week we have secured Ciaren Jones, Finley Wilkinson, Toby Syme, Stan Georgiou, Lewis Barker, Bradley Bell and Kye Tearle. I am really excited about this as we have already ensured the core of last season’s squad will be returning to Top Field to build on what we achieved last season.

I am particularly pleased because we have faced competition from other clubs looking to sign our players and money becomes a major issue as we have to work to a budget. It has meant long and detailed discussions with players and we have been so pleased that they have decided to stay at Hitchin to hopefully push for the play-offs. There is a strong bond within the group and this is something I have always worked really hard to achieve.

Further discussions are still taking place and I hope to have further news next week.


We can announce away friendlies we have confirmed with various step 4 clubs—

  • Thursday 13th July away to Leighton Town kick-off 7.30pm.
  • Tuesday 18th July away to Stotfold kick-off 7.30pm.
  • Thursday 20th July away to Barton Rovers kick-off 7.30pm.
  • Tuesday 1st August away to AFC Dunstable kick-off 7.30pm.

We hope to announce our home friendlies next week. It is not straight forward when you are playing a team from a higher level as they like to be in control of when any announcement of the date of the game can be announced.


I am speaking to club captain Charlie Horlock next Friday. He has promised to review the past season and discuss the positive news regarding the players who have signed up for next season. He remains keen to have a regular conversation with me to keep supporters in touch with what is going on behind the scenes.
