Match Report

Blues manager, Marvin Samuel was full of praise for his Hertford Town players despite watching them crash out of the FA Vase to a last gasp extra-time goal at Berkhamsted Town. After a slow start the first qualifying round game sprang to life three minutes before half-time as the Blues had two good chances to take the lead. First, Mark Summers saw his free-kick tipped over by the keeper and then moments later Tommy Wade headed narrowly over the bar. Marvin Samuel was forced off on 57 minutes after picking up a knock. Hertford were still piling on the pressure, with striker Anthony Anstead rattling the bar with a header from Jahbez Essoo-Snowden’s cross but from the very next attack, the hosts won the ball and Connor Calcutt fired them into a 1-0 lead.The Blues fought back and in the 70th minute a long throw from Mark Summers was flicked on into the far corner over the keeper’s head by a Berkhamsted defender. With eight minutes remaining a Smith corner was headed narrowly wide by Anstead. The game went into extra-time and Wade looked to have secured Hertford’s progress by heading home from Charlie Smith’s free-kick. However, Berkhamsted levelled in the 112th minute through Dan Griggs and Calcutt netted the winner right on the final whistle.

Berkhamsted 3-2 Hertford Town AET. (Att: 127)
