The Hatters get their preparations for the 2021/22 season underway tomorrow afternoon with their first pre-season game of the summer break against Southern League neighbours Hitchin Town.
A limited number of spectators have been permitted at Top Field for the 3pm kick-off, the first chance for many to see Nathan Jones’ side in action since December 2020.
It will be a first-hand opportunity for the 1,250 supporters in attendance to watch a number of the Hatters’ summer signings, except Amari’i Bell, who is representing Jamaica in the upcoming Gold Cup.
Three years on from their last encounter, the Town will be hoping for a similarly impressive start to the pre-season after they were 6-2 victors against Saturday’s opponents thanks to goals from James Collins, Elliot Lee, Harry Cornick, Jake Jervis and a Luke Gambin brace.
Getting into the ground
Address – Fishponds Road, Hitchin, Herts, SG5 1NU

Nathan Jones on tomorrow’s match:
“I’m delighted for Hitchin because they are a good partner that we have so they will reap the benefits. We have a great following who haven’t watched live football for a while so it will be a nice occasion, plus it will add a little bit of competitiveness to the game.
“There is nothing better than a warm day in July when you can come and watch your team, have a beer or a soft drink, whatever you’re drinking and enjoy your football! It has been solely missed for the last year and it will be good to have them back because football without fans is very, very different.”
We look forward to seeing our brilliant supporters at Top Field tomorrow!
