Hemel Hempstead Town FC return to action on Saturday as they continue their preparations for life in the Conference South.

Dean Brennan’s Tudors head to Broadwater to take on Mick Vipond’s Berkhamsted in a pre-season Dacorum derby friendly clash.

The match will give Hemel fans the chance to see the Tudors in action for the first time since their historic promotion from the Calor League Southern Premier Division last season.

New signings Wes Daly and James Potton could make their first appearances for the Tudors, while the Broadwater faithful will also get the chance to see several new players who have joined the club ready for the new campaign.

The game kicks off at 3pm, and a decent sized crowd is expected as SSML Premier Division side Berko look to gain Dacorum bragging rights over their lofty neighbours.
