Thursday 19th May 2016

Ronnie Radford Award to be presented at the FA Cup Final on Saturday

We are delighted to announce that our victory at Bristol Rovers in the Emirates FA Cup 1st Round Proper has been voted as the winner of this year's Ronnie Radford Award for the FA Cup Giant-Killing of the season.

The award will be presented on the pitch by Ronnie Radford himself during the half-time break in this Saturday's FA Cup Final between Crystal Palace and Manchester United. Chesham United will be represented at Wembley by club chairman, Brian McCarthy, alongside manager and assistant manager, Andy Leese and Jon Meakes, plus the scorer of our winning goal at Bristol Rovers, Ryan Blake.

Andy Leese commented, "A fantastic way to round off an historic season. It shows the magnitude of what we did this season in the FA Cup when we pick up an award like this. It really caps off the season for the club. To be the first Non-League club to win it, and the link with Ronnie Radford is really special. The day at Bristol will live long in the memory and now this award will cement it in the history books forever."

A full DVD of the game at Bristol Rovers is available to buy from the Supporters Trust priced at £10, email community@cheshamunited.co.uk to order.
