Save Hitchin Town

Share/Save

The fight is on to save Hitchin Town, one of three clubs to play in the first FA Cup that is still taking part today.   They are threatened with losing their ground and having to use an out of town site they don't want.

One complication that this report does not make clear is that the ground is owned by a charity (which has a general obligation under charity law to make best use of its assets) while the club is run by a company.
