Help the Hatters Update 30

Help the Hatters and Matthew Todd . Saturday just gone not only saw an excellent win for County, but also saw Help the Hatters confirm another initiative aimed at supporting Alan Lord in his work to see the Club make progress on the park.  Matthew Todd pre game at North Ferriby. Matthew Todd is a young player who has caught the County Manager`s eye, and Help the Hatters have agreed to meet the cost of Matthews wages for next season. That is the full extent of it....there is no `claw back’ clause as with the highly successful Rhys Turner deal, but again we felt that it is another move worth making and one likely to benefit Club and player! Car Boot Sales. Help the Hatters are now well into their stride with a season of Car Boot Sales at the Booth Street Car Park.

County Youth 0 Guiseley 0

  County`s Youth team fought out an excellent 0-0 draw in the   un familiar surroundings of Park Road the home of Cheadle Town, today. It was a cracking match and having toured Yorkshire in search of one of any ilk earlier in the week, I for one was well pleased and not a little relieved, even though the venue had more than a touch of the building site about it with the main stand, long slaved over by teams of HtH painters, rapidly disappearing before our eyes! Kameron Palmer. County`s opponents were Guiseley, who had already beaten them twice this season, the last time by 6-1, and with Kingsley Charles , Ryan Dunne and Danny Dalton prominent early on another chastening lesson looked on for the blues. But for County Kameron Palmer stood up to the challenge well and with captain Leon Murphy covering the lively Luke Porritt on the other flank   the first 5 or six minutes saw both teams probe the other looking for an opening that refused to come. Then one did....
