Next up – Hemel Hempstead Town
Saturday, 18th September at Wodson Park SG12 0UQ;
Emirates FA Cup, 2nd qualifying round; kick off 3pm.

Admission (pay at the gate) - Adults £10, Concessions £5.

How much longer will we alternate between cup and league games every Saturday? National South side Hemel Hempstead Town will be hoping to put a stop to it and pocket the £3,375 from the prize fund.

What are the odds on that? The Tudors are two steps higher than us in the National League System so will be fancied by some. On the other hand they are bottom of their division with just one point from six games whilst we are pushing for at least a play-off spot in ours. On current form might we both effectively be considered mid-table Step 3 sides?

Hemel did pick up their first point last Saturday so maybe their morale is up but we have home advantage; the memory that our last meeting at this stage of the cup which resulted in a 2-1 win for Ware in Hemel; and are coming off a run of six consecutive wins.

It looks like it could go either way. So why not get along to Wodson Park on Saturday to see how the 94th meeting between the two clubs pans out in reality?

We want as many of you there as possible of course but if you can’t get to the game there will be commentary from Pete Hill and Symon Allemandy on
