County Cup Fourth Round
THIS was a game that had both Lee and Simmo a bit apprehensive before the tie as the two teams had not met before.
All that was known of the opposition was that Hemel were previous County Cup finalists, were top of their league having won all eight of their games so far this season and had players at Luton and Barnet.

Nerves were soon settled after the first minute when a good ball out wide to Jack from Kailan Carr saw him tear down the left wing and deliver a great cross which John Veal duly stroked home.
Within ten minutes the home side doubled their lead when a great ball over the top from Mitch found Reece King bearing down on the 'keeper to calmly slot home.

Reece then scored his second of the game with some great footwork beating two defenders and hitting a great shot past the oncoming 'keeper.
With five minutes to go before half time George won a strong header in the middle of the park, Reece collected the ball and played a great ball to John who lobbed the 'keeper from 25 yards but the ball hit the bar, bounced on the line and was duly cleared by the defence.
Within a minute John was again fed through and crashed the ball home from 12 yards to make the score 4-0 at half time.
The second half started as the first had finished with Broadhall dominating in the middle of the park and it was not long before Carr joined the scorers when he slotted home from six yards.
The whole team were playing well with Alex, Ellis, Michael and Jeremy keeping out any chances created by the visitors at the back, Mitch and Jack creating loads of chances down the wings, George Glennon with Carr winning the aerial challenge and midfield battle and John and Reece causing the opposition loads of problems up front.
Glennon then scored a well struck left footed low shot from the edge of the area into the bottom of the corner before Veal scored the goal of the game when he received the ball with his back to goal outside the box to cleverly turn and lob the keeper to complete his hat trick.
Glennon then scored his second after everyone seemed to stop and watch him control the ball and casually tap the ball home with the 'keeper not moving, making it 8-0 to the home side.
This was a fantastic performance by every one of the boys. Even after five changes had been made we still did not loose our shape or ambition. Christian and Tyler had a great game at the back, Nathan and Daniel worked hard in midfield and Harrison had a great game with his pace running at the defence down the left side.
With a score line of 8-0 the visitors never gave up and were a great credit to their club always giving 100 per cent right to the final whistle and we would like to wish them and their supporters the best of luck for the rest of the season.
