The HTJFC u8 Whites formed a guard of honour for the players of Hungerford Town and Billericay Town in the FA Trophy, and got to take penalties on the pitch at half time.
Despite the excellent support from the players and parents, unfortunately Hungerford fell to a 2-0 defeat, in a match which also featured two missed penalties and a red card!
The full highlights (including a quick cameo of our half time penalties) are available on the Hungerford Town YouTube Channel here

Last Sunday Hungerford Town U11s had the opportunity to play a match on the County Ground pitch – home of Swindon Town FC.
Chosen specifically by our opponents Wroughton to participate, the two teams put on a fantastic show, a hugely entertaining match with more twists, turns and drama than the usual Swindon Town match.
Despite being two goals down early on, Hungerford rallied to level at 2-2, before going 4-2 down soon after. A third Hungerford goal reduced the deficit to one goal at half time.
The second half saw us score twice within the first ten minutes – the second of these was an incredible strike from inside our own half, and we found ourselves in front for the first time at 5-4. Some heroic goalkeeping and at times frantic defending saw us hold the lead til the final whistle – a fantastic result!
Well done to the players and thanks to Wroughton for inviting us!
The u7’s won their section of the recent Cold Ash tournament, their football being nearly as good as their dabbing!
Steve ‘Skippy’ Skipworth, who for many a year has voluntarily maintained the primary school pitches as well as the principle Hungerford Town pitch, been a coach at HTJFC and chairman of the committee, has been honoured Hungerford Town.
Skippy steps down at the end of the season and HTJFC cannot thank him enough for all his efforts.
