Chesham Utd drawn away v Peterborough Utd

Monday 17th October

The FA Cup 2016/17

Chesham United's reward for reaching the First Round Proper of the FA Cup for the second consecutive season is an away tie v Peterborough Utd, currently 11th in League One

This is another great test for Chesham, to follow the exploits at Bristol Rovers and Bradford City last season. Peterborough's ground is near the town centre, with plenty of shopping and the cathedral amongst other attractions, so makes a great day out for the whole family - not just the football fans - and has a great reputation as a friendly and welcoming place for visiting supporters. So, watch out for confirmation of the date and start planning!

Matches to be played during the weekend of 4th to 6th November, details tbc

Manager Andy Leese said of the draw:

"Another fantastic game in prospect as we play Peterborough United in the next round of the FA cup. I thought our ball had been lost as the draw went on and on! Playing another professional club is a great reward for our efforts.

"It will be extremely challenging as we found last season with Bristol Rovers and Bradford City. We will prepare as we always do and see where it takes us. The game will ignite the fans and the town again, and I'm sure we will take a huge support to the game. We need to focus on the League games and the FA Trophy before that , but what a great game to look forward to!

COYG!"
