Hitchin Town Football Club is a semi-professional football club based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. They will compete in the Southern Football League's Premier Division for the 2013–14 season. Founded in 1928 and known as "The Canaries", Hitchin Town have been based at Top Field since their foundation, and claim lineage from the defunct Hitchin Football Club, formed in 1865 and liquidated in 1911. The club have played in a number of local leagues, starting off in the Spartan League before moving to first the Athenian League in 1939, then the Isthmian League in 1963 and finally the Southern League in 2004. Their most recent honour has been the Southern League Division One Central, finishing play-off winners in 2010–11, their second season in the competition.
Some shady characters frequent the "Top Field" ground.
Here is one of 'em - our very own " Mr Butler" star of the Railway Children "stress testing" the terracing.
Some more of that great wooden terracing. Anybody got a light?
You get a fine mural for your admission money as well at Top field.
Our old favourite the collapsed wall - did someone fart ? Rumour has it, the Butler was seen walking away from the crime scene.
Loyal Bashley hold firm on Hitchen's 18 step terrace.
Some action shots above - fair to say it was not a classic - so back to the terraces as per below.
