Hitchin Town FC Top Field clash set for campaign stand
PEOPLE opposed to plans for Top Field are being encouraged to head to Hitchin Town Football Club’s home-tie this weekend.
The club face Evo-Stik Southern rivals Stourbridge on Saturday. Just two points separate the teams, with Stourbridge having the advantage at the moment.
All those who are opposed to the plans to kick the club off Top Field and build a new stadium on Green Belt in St Ippolyts are being asked to go along and show their support, in a bid to show the Hitchin Cow Commoner’s Trust that the town wants the club to keep its home.
It follows a drawing unveiled last month, which reveals plans to build a superstore on the site. The drawing was not submitted as a planning application, but a screening opinion asking council officers whether an environmental assessment of the sites needed to be taken.
At Hitchin area committee on Tuesday, many councillors reiterated views that they were against the plans.

To show your support for the club, head to Top Field for a 3pm kick-off. Tickets cost �10 for adults, �6 for concessions and �2 for under 16s.
