The junior footballers from Hitchin Town FC’s thriving youth section enjoyed the day at the Cambridge Road site as they were presented with trophies for their efforts throughout last season.

The event, which has taken place at Top Field in previous years, offered a number of fun attractions for the academy players and their parents including bouncy castles and a penalty speed-shooting game donated for the day by the MacronStore in Letchworth.

There was also a barbecue – with the mouth-watering fayre kindly donated by bakers Days of Ashwell and Trussells Butchers in Letchworth.

Youth chairman Paul Males told the Comet: “The presentation day topped off a very successful 2016-2017 season throughout all our different age groups.

“As Hitchin Town youth expands we are always looking for anyone who may be able to volunteer some time to come and help us run our club, and help give it a community feel – as without volunteers the club would not be able to function.
