FA Cup First Round date confirmed: Chesham to face Peterborough on Sat 5th Nov

Friday 21st October

The FA Cup 2016/17

Getting ready for a Posh day out!

Chesham United's reward for reaching the First Round Proper of the FA Cup for the second consecutive season is an away tie at Peterborough United. The Posh are currently 7th in Football League One following their midweek 3-0 win over Northampton Town. We have now learnt that as we have not been selected for live broadcast or for the Sunday Football Focus Special the game will be played on Saturday 5th November at 3pm.

Admission prices for the game have been announced by Peterborough and we will be receiving tickets to sell from The Meadow:

In Advance: Adults £12, Seniors/18-21s £8, Junior U18s £3

On Match Day: Adults £15, Seniors/18-21s £10, Junior U18s £5

The Supporters Trust is also arranging coach travel to the game and details will be released shortly now that the date is known. We hope to have both match and coach tickets available for next Tuesday's home match with Kettering but check our website and social media for confirmation.

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!"
