Hitchin Town & Cheshunt both now play at step 3 of the football pyramid, but in different leagues, so we have to head back to 2017 for recent meetings when cup matches bought us together.
- Newton (48', 50')
- Charles (81')
We head back to 2017 for the last matches where Hitchin Town met Cheshunt, and then like buses, they all came at once.
Hitchin were 3-1 winners of the Herts Senior Cup semi final, and went on to win the trophy that year, Cheshunt gained revenge and a trophy themselves beating Hitchin 1-0 in the Herts FA Charity Cup Final.
The third meeting that year saw Hitchin canter to a 5-0 victory over an injury hit Ambers side in the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy.
Each of those cup ties saw Step 4 Cheshunt taking on Step 3 Hitchin Town, today for the first time in a long time both clubs are competing at the same level.
Hitchin Town currently sit 16th in the Southern Premier Central division with six points from 6 games, two wins against the teams 17th & 18th below them Nuneaton Borough & Barwell and having conceded eleven goals and scored seven.
Cheshunt go into the match on the back of a very positive win over Potters Bar Town taking them to 10th in the Isthmian Premier League, with two wins two draws & two narrow 1-0 losses that could have been different if chances were taken. Goal difference is positive and the nine goals scored coming from five different players.
Current form suggests this should be a very good match with entertainment & goals.
