Tomorrow evening we travel to Hertford Town to defend our crown as Herts Senior Cup Champions. Town will be keen to go further after a breathtaking giant killing act in their previous round. Reduced to ten men after 25 minutes, they were leading Hitchin Town 2-1 until an 89th minute equaliser looked to take the tie into extra time. However the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division side popped up with a dramatic winner, to knock out the side from two tiers higher.
Regarding the competition Allinson declared, “ I thoroughly enjoyed our night at Letchworth at the end of last season when we lifted the Cup. We had two extremely tough matches in a week against HitchinTown and Watford to get to the Final. Winning the Cup gave the club a lift and kept our momentum going into this season. I will not be underestimating Hertford Town and will go as strong as I can on the night. We are the holders and we will not be giving the Cup up without a fight.”
