DISAPPOINTING: Hemel lose 3-0 at home against Braintree Town 

 Published on: 9th November 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Hemel Hempstead Town F.C

After a disappointing loss to Concord Rangers last week, The Tudors tried their best in their game against Braintree Town FC today (November 9) but in a complete mismatch they were thrashed 3-0.  

The rain did not stop the Manarama National League game taking place today with the club’s president Sir Mike Penning, Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Hemel, leading the minute silence before the game commenced. 

The opposition exercised their dominance by taking an early lead in the 28th minute. After a number of attempts from both teams, Braintree had a slender lead 1-0 at the half time whistle. 

After the break, The Tudors tried pushing for the equalizer but were unable to get the ball in the net. 

After a number of attempts at their goal, Braintree caught The Tudors on the counter and made it 2-0. 

10 minutes later Braintree’s defender, Jack James bombed down the right and put the ball into the back of the net to put the visitors 3-0 up.

Hemel went into the game sitting fourth in the league, but the disappointing result means they drop to sixth. 

Hemel Manager Sammy Moore, said: “Not going to defend that performance, simply not good enough, over the last two games it has showed a lot about what we have and what we might need. 

“This has only made the management team more determined to put this right. Hard work is the only way to get out of this difficult period.”

Hemel will be looking to improve on their last two league results and get back to winning ways when they play St Margaretsbury FC in Stanstead on November 12.
