Blues’ first Isthmian League Cup tie for 15 years will see us make the short trip to Hertford Town on Tuesday September 18, kick-off 7.45pm.
Ten years after Town were relegated from the Isthmian League, they finished runners-up in the Spartan South Midlands League in 2017 to gain promotion. Their first year in the Isthmian League proved to be tough going as they finished 15th with 57 points from 46 games.
Considering how close the two clubs are, it’s a surprise that we’ve only met them three times in the last 25 years. The last meeting saw Blues win 6-0 at Hertingforbury in the Herts Charity Cup 11 years ago. A decade before that the sides shared two 1-1 draws in the Eastern Floodlight Cup group stage.
