Next up - Chertsey Town away on Saturday, 31st August at Alwyns Lane, Chertsey KT16 9DW; BetVictor Isthmian League Div. 1 (South Central); kick off 3pm.

Admission - Adults £9, concessions (over 65 and 12-17yrs) £6, Under 12's £2.

This will be our first visit to Alwyns Lane since 2005 when we lost 3-1 in the old Isthmian League Division Two. It was our sixth competitive match of the season but in what was a weird period for fixture arrangements it was our first league game. In fact we only played two league matches in our first 11 games, the FA Cup and Associate Memebers Trophy taking precedence. The Chertsey defeat was our fourth in a run that stretched to nine losses before we got a grip of ourselves and went on to win the league.

Chertsey finished sixth that season but in the reorganisation of non-league that followed were deposited into the Combined Counties League where they stayed for five seasons before gaining promotion to the Southern League at Step 4. After three seasons they were back in the Combined Counties for another five season spell before gaining promotion in April this year.

They have doubtless been promoted confident that they can last longer at Step 4 than last time having also won the FA Vase at Wembley. It's a great achievement but inevitably life at the higher level has not been easy. Their opening three league games have seen them collect a full complement of a win, draw and defeat, and they sit one point and three places behind us in the early table.

The FA Cup has seen them progress through the extra preliminary and preliminary rounds though they needed a replay win at Step 5 Cobham in the first of those.

I understand Liam Hope is unavailable for us in this game but I thought that about the midweek game with FC Romania so I could be wrong.
