United learn FA Cup fate

CHESHAM United's quest to make it to the FA Cup first round will begin on September 11 this season.

CHESHAM United's quest to make it to the FA Cup first round will begin on September 11 this season.

The Generals were dumped out of the prestigious competition 4-3 at Aylesbury, the lowest ranked side left in the draw, in the third qualifying round last season.

It was a major disappointment for the club who were drawn to play Wealdstone in the next round for a place in the first round proper.

Instead it was the Stones who set up a glamour home tie with League Two side Rotherham.

This season United enter the competition at the first qualifying round and will travel to either Burnham Ramblers, Haringey Borough or Hillingdon Borough.

Andy Leese's side have been handed a tough draw to kick off their FA Trophy campaign with a first qualifying round game at home to fellow Southern Premier League side Salisbury City.

City were demoted two divisions from the Conference last season after going into administration.
