HARPENDEN Rovers lost out to Kimpton Rovers on Saturday in the Herts Senior County League Division One.
Debutante Alex Hamer looked very assured for Harpenden. After 20 minutes, Rovers were forced to make a change as Joe Harmer came off injured and Graham Golds came on. This increased Rovers' pressure as Golds dominated in the centre of midfield.
With 30 minutes gone, Kimpton were awarded a penalty after a clumsy challenge from Williams. Midfielder Mullooly coolly slotted the penalty home. Kimpton then gifted Rovers the equaliser when a poor clearance hit Jenkinson and flew in to the net.
Harpenden were rocked when goalkeeper Elliot Thomas came out but did not call and Hitchcock headed back into his own empty goal.
