FA Trophy - home to Hyde or Barrow

Monday 26th November

FA Trophy 2nd Round Proper - Saturday 15th December 3pm

Following Saturday's 2-1 victory over Blue Square Bet Conference South side Bath City, today's 2nd Round draw has given Chesham United another home tie.

This time we will face Conference National opposition with either Hyde or Barrow AFC making the long journey south to The Meadow. United manager Andy Leese was pleased with Saturday's performance after a tough period in the league.

"We are delighted with the draw. It gives us another home tie which is important for many reasons, but we also relish the home matches on our excellent playing surface as we showed on Saturday against Bath.

"We will prepare as we normally do but we cannot allow the game to be a distraction as we look to catch up on League games."

Hyde and Barrow fought out a 1-1 draw in the 1st round on Saturday and will replay tomorrow night (Tuesday) at Barrow.

Both sides currently lie in the bottom four relegation spots of the national division of the Football Conference; Hyde areĀ  in 21st place with 20 points from 19 games and Barrow in 23rd with 19 from 19.

This does mean that our scheduled home league game with Redditch will now be re-scheduled. Also, don't forget that later in the evening on the 15th December it is the club Christmas Party in The Chess Suite with free entry for all and live music from Abakus - could be a great day to have an early Christmas celebration.
