Hitchin Town, who the Lilywhites have played, as well as in Cup matches, in the Spartan League, the Anthenian League and the Southern League, were founded in 1928. They have played their home matches at their Top Field Ground since they were founded.
There had been a previous Hitchin Football Club, which was founded in 1865 and reached the quarter final of the inaugural F.A. Cup. Having turned professional at the turn of the 20th century, this club got into finicial difficulties following a fire at their ground and as a result folded in 1911.

The Lilywhites were lucky to snatch all three points, thanks to a 90th minute penalty by Adam Marriott, despite at one stage leading 2 nil. Against a Hitchin side that coped better with the wet and windy conditions, that made it hard to play flowing football, the Lilywhites had opened the scoring in the 26 minute before doubling their lead when Kelvin Bossman scored his first goal for the Lilywhites on 31 minutes. Playing with the gusting wind, the Lilywhites could not settle and on 39 minutes Simon Martin pulled one back for Hitchin. Into the second half, it looked like that it would not take long for Hitchin to equalise and then go on to win. They then had a player sent off, for an over the ball two footed tackle, but it did not stop them pulling level. They continued to bombard the the Lilywhites' goal and only some last ditch tackles stopped them scoring another. Then on 90 minutes, Hitchin conceded a penalty and a cool Adam Marriott slotted the penalty passed a hobbling Hitchin goalkeeper, Tahji Bell, to give the Lilywhites all three points. Leaving their fans happy. There had been a crowd of 288. Not a bad turn out for such a horrible night. The match had originally been due to be played on December 4th, only to be re-arranged as Hitchin had a cup tie that night.
