St Albans City Youth U15 North missed out on a place in the semi-finals of the Herts County Cup with a heartbreaking 4-2 extra-time defeat to Hitchin Town EJA.

It was 2-2 at the end of normal time thanks to two goals from Jamie Armstrong.

And the Saints thought they had snatched victory in the dying seconds when a header from Dan Banerjee went goalwards.

However, it was adjudged that the whole of the ball had not crossed the line.

All the boys gave their all but with only 12 fit players for the match, Hitchin were the fresher in extra time scoring twice to book their last-four spot.
