In the second round of the George John Cup, Troll Campbell were at home against fellow Division Two side Hitchin Rovers and lost 3-0.

An end to end first half saw Cal Taylor level the scores with a spectacular long range effort after the visitors had gone behind.

The home side's lead was restored shortly after but was once again cancelled out when Nick Jessop stabbed home from close range following an Alex Jode corner.

Six minutes before the break a poorly timed challenge gifted Cronies a penalty which was duly converted for a slender 3-2 lead.

Top of the table North Herts Hatters remain unbeaten but dropped points for the first time this season after their 0-0 stalemate against Khoi Khoi.
