|Guess the crowd competition. The Cold End's estimate was around 25-30 people|
AFC Hatfield Town and Whitwell played out a really entertaining and eventful Hertfordshire Senior County League Division One game on Tuesday evening at The Birchwood Leisure Centre. Whitwell went into the game having just been crowned Division One champions combined with an ultra impressive 100% winning record. AFC Hatfield Town, in fourth place, were in good form as well having lost only one league game in their last eight.
|The referee had a reasonably quite evening and only booked two players.|
|What will now be known as THE HATFIELD DOG INCIDENT.|
|Strong tackles were put in throughout the game|
As the match went on it, the sun disappeared and it became increasingly colder with the wind blowing across the pitch causing many of the fans watching to take cover under the surrounding trees. Then the rain came!!! When the final whistle was blown it was the quickest clearing of a pitch I've ever witnessed as every player darted back into the relative warmth of the changing rooms bar two who seemingly joined the short straw to take down the goal-nets.
|The weather conditions went downhill with around 20 minutes left|
Whitwell now go into their final game of the season against Old Parmiterians on Saturday 5th May with a chance of going the full season with a 100% winning record. The last time they lost in the league was way back on Saturday 14th May 2011 when Hertford Heath beat them 1-5.
