End of Season Presentation Evening - Friday 15th May (posted Sun 22nd Mar 2015)
Bar open from 7pm and the Clubs Annual Awards evening will commence at 8pm. Each team has Players Player and Managers Player of the Year Awards, plus a Supporters First Team Player of the Year Award. In addition there are various other important awards such as Clubman and the evening is an opportunity to celebrate the season past and thank all those who have worked hard on behalf of the Club.
Player Appearances (posted Sat 21st Mar 2015)
We've seen a number of milestones of player appearances recently with Ashley O'Brien set to make his 100th West Herts appearance today. Alongside him in the B team Stephen Alford is now on 156, Paul Dale 146, Dave Allen 104 and Phil Monaghan 138.

Paul Jeffrey recently passed the 200 mark over 6 seasons with Athletic. James Butler is on 153 having spread his games over all 4 teams but his younger brother goes one better by also turning out for the U18s across his 124 appearances. Dan Smethers is just short of a landmark on 147 appearances and may make the 150 if he stops going to watch Watford!

Sam Joliffe is on 148 and Trevor Gibbs 398 scoring 50 times in the process. The player with the most club appearances who has turned out this season is Stuart Steadman on 516.

At the other end of the scale we've given debuts to a large numbers of youngsters this season and have proved that if you are good enough you are old enough blooding many of the under 18s squad into senior football. Average ages in the first team have been in the 22-24 region and recently fielding a reserve team of mainly teenagers unlucky to lose at Sutton United. We hope to be able to celebrate some appearance landmarks with the "newbies" in future years.

St Marys Cup Semi Final (posted Thu 19th Mar 2015)
We have been drawn at HOME in the Semi Final of the St Marys Cup and will meet Sun Sports with this match scheduled to be played on Tuesday 14th April with a 7:45pm kick off.
Miswell Lane (posted Thu 12th Mar 2015)
It is with great sadness that this week we have handed back the keys to our former Miswell Lane ground to Dacorum Borough Council this having been where the Club was formed in 1958 and enjoyed many successful footballing seasons. The vandalism in 2013 was probably the straw that broke the camels back with an alternative pitch/ground required for our teams to play at. The Club has consolidated its football activities at The Grass Roots Stadium, Cow Lane where we continue to improve the facilities for players and members of the Club.
