Hadley can expect a stern test in Tuesday night’s Herts Senior Cup quarter-final against St Albans City at Clarence Park.
Joint managers James Gray and Graham Golds will be looking to reach the semi-final of the cup for the first time since they took the helm at the Saints. The last two years have ended in defeat at the hands of Hemel Hempstead at this stage of the competition.
SSML Premier Division outfit Hadley pose a lesser challenge than previous years - three leagues separate the teams - but Gray is not taking the competition for granted.
“We’ll have a good squad game on Tuesday night,” he said. “I want to win the game, and the cup.”
The Saints are expected to put out a mix of youth and experienced players. Gray has indicated that James Comley and David Keenleyside, both returning from injury, will feature in some capacity while James Kaloczi, who has returned from his loan spell at Wingate and Finchley, is in line for a start.
Fans could also get another look at Jack Green after his fantastic performance against Gosport Borough in the Vanarama Conference South. Youth products David Longe-King and Alex Yearwood are also expected to play.
The club has dropped the admission price to a flat rate of £5 for the game. Kick-off at Clarence Park is 7.45pm.
