Is this our home fixture? We can't play because Spurs D team are using our ground? Sometimes I just want to give up. Can't even play our home games at home because money talks. Laughable if it wasn't so sad.

So, how much does it cost to hire Top Field? What are our running costs for a ‘main stand only’ game?

How many supporters wouldn’t bother attending as it’s in Hitchin instead of Stevenage?

How much does the reputation loss of not having your home matches at home cost you?

I guess that works both ways. They could be looking to attract new fans from the areas the game are being played in...

It must be, because I've never heard anything discussed about changing venue for a HSC game before.

However, I'll rely on Chuds to confirm or otherwise, as he is the unequalled King of HSC knowledge, and I'm sure he'd remember if this had been discussed in detail at a MTC event.

As with my reply below, we switched our tie with Berkhamsted to play at theirs, all other times we have been drawn to play at home we have done so.

And the HSC is drawn in such a way that you know your entire path to the final from the first round draw so there can be no confusion over who should or not not be at home.

This year for instance we are home in R1, away to Ware in R2, away to Baldock or Kings Langley in QF and then at home in the SF.

I would be genuinely interested in further information on this as I have only missed one of those events in the last six or seven years, I always tweet every question asked and answer given throughout them, and I do not recall this ever being discussed before.

This is the first time we have played a home game at an alternative neutral venue and have previously played our games at our stadium in both the HSC and the FA Youth Cup if drawn at home. Last season we were drawn to play at home to Berkhamsted in the HSC but we moved our match to be played at their ground (all other away games in it we were drawn away anyway), however in all previous seasons we have played our home matches in both competitions at our ground, including last season in the FA Youth Cup.

I get the financial cost of us hosting games and I get the financial benefit we get of hosting Spurs' games (which PW has said multiple times is very lucrative). I personally have no issue with us not playing our HSC games at our stadium and always want us to be drawn away in it anyway as it is far more fun.

I am very disappointed in the club for their stance with regards to the FA Yourh Cup though. We have hosted a lot of matches in this down the years, always get decent crowds and it gives our fans a chance to see and support the youngsters whilst also giving the players a chance to play at their club's home stadium in front of their home fans, which is not a small thing. Revs himself was talking about what a key thing it is and how great an experience it is for them to play in front of a crowd under the lights. Even if it lost a couple of quid, the experience should not be removed from the academy players IMO and this should be their reward and their chance to put on a show for our fans to support them. Very poor to switch it IMO, especially by using the line about fixture congestion.

You are correct, just checked my Twitter account where I mentioned it. So we only switched one, but Berko rather than Sawbridgeworth.

We were drawn to face Sawbridgeworth away anyway in the draw in August.
