Catch up with the latest Hitchin Town news ahead of Saturday’s match at home to Basingstoke, kick off 3.00pm and Monday evening’s game against St Ives starting at 7.45pm at Top Field.


Please see the main club website for the full press release on Non-League Day. The main points are that it will be a pay what you want game and a percentage of the match day takings will be donated to Stevenage Haven who are responsible for the day to day running of the homeless shelter in Nightingale Road, Hitchin. They will also hold a collection and the monies raised will all go to the Hitchin shelter. Tickets can be bought online ahead of the day and details are again on the club website.


The home game against Merthyr on Saturday 21 October has been designated as this season’s Youth Day. This is a popular annual event and more details will follow.


No date has yet been fixed for the other semi-final between Hemel Hempstead and Royston so we must patiently wait to see who our final opponents will be.


Brett Donnelly will return to the squad for the Basingstoke game.

Connor Vincent has made good progress and is close to returning to the squad.

Connor Roberts has rejoined Frome Town after he was not able to be available midweek for Hitchin.

Jack Green will be available for the Basingstoke game after recovering from illness.

After a hard training session on Monday the players had a bonding night at an Indian restaurant. These nights are very important in building team spirit and togetherness in the squad.
