It’s been a busy few days for Hertford Town FC. On July 7th the hotly anticipated FA Cup and FA Trophy draws were made. We managed to get a bye in both competitions. We will be eagerly awaiting the results from the following matches to see who we will face in the next round:

FA Cup: Hadleigh United or Sporting Bengal United (5th August). Our tie will be at home on 19th August.
FA Trophy: AFC Dunstable or Corinthian-Casuals (7th October). Our tie will be away on 28th October.

On Tuesday night, we had our second pre-season friendly. This was against St Margaretsbury and despite the “monsoon” conditions, The Blues won the match comfortably with a 3 – 0 result. For the match photos and video, please click here.
