Hitchin Town picked up a 1-0 win in their latest pre-season friendly – this one away to St Neots Town.
This was the prefect warm-up game ahead of the Southern League Premier Division Central season with the hosts, who play one level below the Canaries, making it a hugely competitive and entertaining contest.
The winner came on the hour from the penalty spot, Layne Eadie converting, and was just reward for an improved effort after the break.
Charlie Horlock had made a couple of important saves in the first half to keep St Neots out but Hitchin had their own chances, the best of which fell to Jhai Dhillon with one effort cleared off the line and a second blazed over the top.
After the break the visitors’ best opening fell to the unmarked Laurie Marsh at a corner but he directed his header over the crossbar.
Hitchin start their new league season at home to Alvechurch on September 19.
