Promotion fever is growing at Hitchin Town FC as the Fishponds Road club prepares for its final scheduled league game of the season – with a play-off place to fight for a spot in the sixth tier of English football already guaranteed.
With Saturday’s match against St Neots Town designated as the club’s annual Youth Day as well as a ‘pay what you want’ game the club is hoping for a bumper four-figure gate as it looks to maintain its impressive form this season.
The club, who previously held a successful ‘pay-what-you-want’ day for the home game against Frome Town in January, will also add any income over their budgeted figure to their Floodlight Fund.
Club secretary and stalwart Roy Izzard said: “We have a brilliant fanbase and we’re grateful for its continuing support which we don’t take for granted.
“We now want to see new faces at Top Field and this is the ideal game for fans to check out just how well their local team has done this season.

“We’d urge as many people in Hitchin as possible to come along for a game which could be as important as any for many years.
“The public helped to save Top Field – so it would be great to see it bursting at the seams on Saturday.”
