Hemel Hempstead Town FC sponsors Underwoods Solicitors are celebrating the Tudors’ historic FA Cup run by offering to pay for U18s to watch the first round clash with Bury.

Hemel visit Gigg Lane on Saturday, November 8, and Underwoods are offering to pay for the cost of a ticket to the game, as well as coach travel, for any U18 who wishes to go along and support the Tudors.

Youngsters must be part of the Hemel Town FC Supporters Club to be eligible, and this is free to join.

As owners of the company, Kerry Underwood and Robert Males were both at Vauxhall Road to witness a memorable night in the club’s history as the Tudors beat Nuneaton Town in the fourth qualifying round of the competition.

A spokesman from Underwoods said: “Underwoods Solicitors are very proud to be the main sponsors of Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club and wish the team all the very best for the game against Bury.”

Any U18s who wish to apply for the free trip should visit the Underwoods office at 79 Marlowes with photo ID/proof of age to register for the offer. Parents’ permission will be required.

Hemel Hempstead MP Mike Penning added:“It was great to be there to witness Hemel Hempstead Town’s historic win to take them to the first round of the FA Cup.

“I welcome this fantastic offer to U18’s by Underwoods Solicitors to cover the cost of the ticket and coach trip to Bury to support the club.

“This is a great offer and I urge any young football fan to take it up.

“It’s great that businesses are backing our team and helping local youngsters in this way.”
