The Hitchin Sunday League Subsidiary Cup Final was played on Sunday 6th June between Stevenage Athletic and Fairfield Park. The competition was organised after the league season was ended due to the cancellation of football because of the pandemic. The competition was played with three groups of five teams and one group of four teams with the teams playing each other once.
In Group A Fairfield Park went into their final games against The Albion with the task of winning by fourteen goals or more to finish top of the table. The games was played in midweek over 70 minutes with the final score amazingly finishing 15-1 which saw them leapfrog Royston United to go through to the semi-finals.
The Division One side were joined in the semi-finals by Stevenage Athletic and Fox & Duck who also play in the top division alongside Coach & Horses who play in Division Three.
The semi-finals were pretty one sided affairs with Stevenage Athletic winning 5-0 against Coach & Horses (Report and Highlights here) and Fairfield Park beating Fox & Duck 5-1.
The final was played at Arlesey Town's home ground in front of a noisy and decent crowd of over 200 people I would estimate - one Fairfield Park fan had a mega-phone which was used throughout the game!!
He continued his support of his team despite Athletic being much the better side throughout the game - they went in at the break 2-0 up although it could of been 2-1 had it not been for an amazing point blank save from a header by the Athletic keeper.
The final score was 6-1 with Stevenage Athletic enjoying some celebration at the end of the game.
