First league game of the season sees the Oranges host Stevenage Town who are known for having an attractive style of play much like ourselves which looks to be a recipe for an entertaining game. Ten minutes into the match it is evident to all that this game is going to live up to expectations, both sides playing free flowing football, slick passing and swift counter attacks. An exciting game with end to end action sees Stevenage draw first blood and go 1-0 up, Letchworth show no sign of letting up and re-double their efforts earning them a well deserved equaliser 1-1 at the break. The second half continues the same way the first half did with both teams having chances to seal the points but neither could hit the target, the final whistle goes and the game ends 1-1.
