Hemel Hempstead Town 1-0 Evesham United
Southern League Premier Division

As Wycombe had played on the Friday away to Torquay, I had a free Saturday and after weighing up my options, decided to go to Hemel Hempstead Town's Vauxhall Road ground, where they were hosting Evesham United in the Southern League Premier Division.

After having a look around Hemel town centre, I set off for the ground, which was a couple of miles away. I arrived just after 2 and easily found a space in a nearby street. I had visited the ground before to take pictures a few years ago. It's a fairly nice ground with a modern looking covered terrace behind each goal and small covered stands on either side of the pitch. Probably good enough to get in the Conference South, if ever they got that far.

The game itself was pretty good, with the home side winning 1-0 - not the best of games but a lot better than some of the dull end of season encounters that happen around this time of year. There was a decent bar and a clubshop that sold old programmes too, which is always nice.
