Just over 50 years after the two clubs met in the FA Cup
Hitchin Town meet Crystal Palace in pre-season friendly
first round, Crystal Palace and Hitchin Town will come face to face in a
pre-season friendly at Top Field.
The Canaries will host a Crystal Palace team on Saturday August 6, kick off 3pm. This replaces a game that was originally planned with Hendon.
As one South London side comes into view, another is removed
from the Hitchin pre-season fixture list. Charlton Athletic, who were due to
come to Hitchin on July 19, have cancelled the game. A replacement friendly
game is expected to be announced soon.
Hitchin's confired pre-season games are:
23/07/11 - Hitchin Town v Letchworth GCE
26/07/11 - Stotfold v Hitchin Town
30/07/11 - Hitchin Town v Needham Market
02/08/11 - Biggleswade Town v Hitchin Town
