Football fixtures never cease to throw up the strangest combination of games. This year's FA Cup preliminary round sees us travel to Cheshunt to meet FC Romania on Saturday, August 24th. We are already due to meet them at home in the league two days later. Even so any replay from the cup game will not, as far as I can tell, replace that league game but will be scheduled for Tuesday, 3rd September.
In the FA Trophy preliminary round we are drawn away on Saturday, October 12th to either Chalfont St Peter or Whitstable Town. A visit to old friends or a trip to the seaside. We'll know after they have met in the extra preliminary round on 28th September.
