Hungerford Town 0 Hemel Hempstead Town 3

Tudors Manager Joe Deeney was delighted as his team got back into winning ways in the Vanarama National League South with what he described as an excellent team performance down at struggling Hungerford.

Hemel set off at a decent pace and skipper Jordan Parkes missed an early effort when he miscued, but it was only a temporary reprieve for the home side as he put the Tudors in front minutes later tucking the ball home from close range. Rob Sinclair was only inches away from adding a second before Hungerford had their first decent effort, when Orsi-Dadomo side footed wide when he was well placed.

Hemel really took control after this and two goals in three minutes pretty much put the game to bed. Steve Cawley put the finishing touch to some fine build up play just after the half hour mark and Hershel Sanchez Watt added a third just a couple of minutes later. As the conditions deteriated, Hemel continued to create chances, Rob Sinclair was put clear and was about to pull the trigger when a last ditch tackle denied him just before the break and Sanchez Watt had an effort well saved before the referee blew for half time.

Both Sinclair and Watt had further chances in the second half and Hemel had to survive a late Hungerford Rally when Hargreaves hit the post and Laurie Walker had to tip another effort wide from James Rusby who then saw his header cleared off the line with the clock ticking down.

Joe Deeney was full of praised for his side in a post-match interview with The Tudors Colin Perreira, saying that it was a really good professional performance, after showing some excellent football in the first half, they really dug in as the weather turned with the wind picking up and the rain lashing down. The players and management team had discussed last weeks below par showing against Hampton and Richmond and they were determined to put it right, which he felt they did.

Next up is a juicy FA Trophy tie against high flying Solihull Moors from the National League Premier Division. Solihull are having an excellent season and it will be a tough ask for The Tudors but Joe pointed out that they they go in every game expecting to win and this tie will be no different. The players are looking forward to the challenge.

The club gave debuts to two new signings, Arel Amu who is a powerful 23 year old forward signed from Dunstable Town, and was formally with Luton Town. He has been a prolific goalscorer at Dunstable and is an exciting prospect. Also signed is Leon Lobjit who has played for us before under former manager Dean Brennan. His former clubs include Northampton Town, Coventry City, Brackley and Oxford City.

The club would like to welcome both players to Hemel Hempstead and wish them all the best in their time with us.
