Our under-18s are heading to Hitchin Town and Hendon for pre-season friendlies next month.

Jack Wilshere’s team will continue their pre-season plans with a trip to Top Field on Saturday, August 3 at 3pm, before a game against Hendon at Silver Jubilee Park three days later, which is a 7.30pm start.

Hitchin play in the Southern League Premier Division Central, the seventh tier of English football. Last season saw them just avoid relegation by finishing in 19th position. 

Hendon meanwhile play at the same level, albeit in the Isthmian League Premier Division.

Tickets for the Hitchin game and the Hendon match are available now, and will be the only opportunity to watch our under-18s in pre-season as their other games will be behind closed doors.
