PRIOR TO KICK OFF BOTH TEAMS AND OFFICIALS OBSERVED A MINUTE'S SILENCE ON REMEMBRANCE DAY.
Hinton maintained their recent run of good form in the Hertfordshire Senior County League making it four victories out of five games played since the beginning of October recording a very narrow 0-1 victory over Hatfield Social on Saturday. The home side went into the game on the back of some good results themselves with wins over Cheshunt 'A' and Oxhey Jets Reserves in their last two games.
It was a pretty scrappy game which was decided by a penalty in the first half which was scored by Paul Clarke. Hinton's goalkeeper made a good save in the second half from a free kick to keep a well deserved clean sheet - Hinton's second of the season.
The win put's Enfield based Hinton just four points off the top of the Division One table which is shaping up to be an exciting title race by the looks of things at present - currently just six points separate first and seventh place.
