Long trips frustrate United boss

ANDY Leese has criticised the league structure as he prepares his Chesham United side for a 200-mile round trip to Romulus tonight.

ANDY Leese has criticised the league structure as he prepares his Chesham United side for a 200-mile round trip to Romulus tonight.

It is the final lenghty trip for United after a similarly long trip to Woodford on Saturday.

He said: “We are all part-time and all the players and myself have to get out of work early today and leave at about 4pm to get to the game.

“I still insist that the structure of the league is not right and does not help clubs. To have to travel so far is not right.”

But the United chief knows the way the Southern League Division One Mids works after spending nearly three seasons trying to get out of it.

A 2-0 win at Woodford helped them cement their play-off spot and a good result at 11 th placed Romulus would all but guarantee their place in the season finale.

“It will be a very difficult game against Romulus,” said Leese. “They have a specific style and it works well for them. They are solid and very difficult to beat so we will have to be prepared.”
