Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division Play-Off Final: Leamington 2 Hitchin Town 1 (AET).

The Phillips 66 Community Stadium, Harbury Ln, Leamington Spa CV33 9SA

Leamington’s ground is much-changed from my last visit here a few years ago with FC United of Manchester. Today’s was an awful game with an awful lot of part-time melts in the ground. Leamington will be glad of the finances and I suppose the ‘support’ but it wasn’t really a ‘football’ crowd and many of them won’t return until the next ‘event’.

The quality [sic] on show was negligible and Hitchin were unlucky to lose but tbf to Leamington they never gave up and there was proper drama at the end.

Leamington are a decent, well-run club, deserve their promotion and will be a welcome addition to the National League North. We’ll return again next season when FCUM are in town.
