Hemel Hempstead Town FC have announced that their Vauxhall Road ground has been granted FA ‘B’ grading prior to the April 1 deadline for promotion eligibility.

With this grading in place, the Tudors are eligible to compete in the Conference South playoffs should they achieve a top-five league finish.

Dean Brennan’s side are currently two points off the playoff positions, with a game in hand on fifth-placed Gosport Borough.

They travel to title-chasing Boreham Wood tomorrow in a game which could go a long way to deciding both teams’ fates this season.
