For a time in the 1930s Hertford were a division higher than us in the Spartan League and were able to enter their reserves in our division. It would be the same as if our under-21s had been entered in the current Spartan South Midlands Premier Division following our promotion over ten years ago.
1935/6 was the last time this happened and Hertford Reserves celebrated by getting the double over us that season. The home game on December 14th 1935 saw us beaten 3-1 with our goal from Orme. Six weeks later we lost the return 3-0. Our last ever meeting with Hertford Reserves came the following season with a 4-0 win in the Herts Charity Shield.
