Cambridge City v Hemel Hempstead Town at Histon, 2013. A hard fought game that saw the Lillywhites, who were trailing at half time, dominate the second half and gain the point they deserved.

11.3.2014                  Hemel Hempstead Town 1 - 1 Cambridge City                                                                                              Cambridge City team: Barrett, Pepper, Brighton, Beasant, Chaffey, Beech, Burns, Martin, Lewis, Marriott and Dawkin. The Lilywhites were without the suspeneded Kelvin Bossman. In this top of the table clash between the leaders (Hemel Hempstead) and 4th placed (Cambridge City), the Lilywhites were more like the team that were so impressive before the lay off due to a number of matches being cancelled due to water logged pitches. They had gone ahead seconds before half-time when Adam Marriott scored from a penalty having been brought down by the Hemel goalkeeper. In the end the match ended all square after Hemel had equalished in the 55th minute.
