HEMEL Town’s poor start to the season continued on Saturday as they were beaten 1-0 at Redditch United.

Once again the Tudors were left frustrated after creating a number of goalscoring opportunities that went begging.

Matt McEntergart was guilty of missing the Tudors’ best chance, as he fired over from close range in the second half after Junior Brown had given Redditch a first half lead.

The game itself was overshadowed by an act of ill discipline from Hemel striker Dennis Fenemore, which has resulted in the forward leaving the club with immediate effect.

Fenemore reacted angrily after his second half substitution, and will no longer be part of the Town set-up.

“Dennis Fenemore has left the club for a breach of club discipline,” said Hemel boss Colin Payne. “He let himself down.”

The Tudors started the game brightly, but Louis Toomey, Marvin Williams and Liam Malone were all guilty of missing good chances as Redditch went into the break 1-0 up courtesy of Brown’s goal.

Town should have equalised after the break, but McEntergart blasted the ball over the bar from inside the six-yard box to let Redditch off the hook.

“The gods seem to be against us at the moment,” said Payne. “To only have one point from the games we’ve played so far is a big disappointment.”
