HARPENDEN Town kick off their new campaign on Saturday when they take on Hoddesdon in the Herts Charity Shield.

Last weekend Harpenden beat Potton United 4-1 with a brace of goals from Jack Rees and strikes from Amar Daved and Ali Collins.

On Tuesday Harps played well against Molten Spartan South Midlands League Premier side Berkhamsted Town. New signing James Ewington scored for Harpenden but Berkhamsted ran out 3-1 winners.

Manager Paul Tomkins has arranged a friendly with a St Albans City XI on Thursday at Rothamsted Research Sports Ground. Town then face Hoddesdon at the Bridgewood Green near Luton in the cup. Tomkins is looking forward to the Hoddesdon clash and is confident his replenished squad will impress. He said: "We are treating it as the first competitive game for us. We have a lot of new players making a revamped first team squad. I am very pleased. They are playing very well and are full of confidence.
