Hemel Hempstead v St Albans City
Saturday, August 1 - 3pm KO
Where: Vauxhall Road, Hemel Hempstead, Hertforshire, HP2 4HW (Tel 01442 259 777)
Who: Hemel Hempstead were very close to playing Blue Square South this season after they lost out in the Southern Premier play-offs to Farnborough. The Tudors, who are managed by Dennis Green, were dealt a massive blow in the summer when influential defender Nathan Bowden-Haase left to join Blue Square Premier side Histon.
Green moved swiftly to replace the defender with former Welling United defender Matthew McEntegart.
Pre-season: After losing their first game of pre-season 2-1 to Grays Athletic, The Tudors are since unbeaten notching wins against Arlesey Town (2-1), Barton Rovers (2-0), Biggleswade Town (5-0) and Ware (3-1).
