Cheshunt meet Merstham in the Isthmian Premier League on Saturday 11th September, this fixture did not take place home or away last year due to the league curtailment. The season before one match took place between the two sides, this corresponding fixture at Theobalds Lane, resulting in a 3-0 win for Cheshunt, Ryan Moss, Ibs Diallo & Zack Newton on the scoresheet that day.
The last fixture was also notable as recent Middlesborough signing Toyosi Olusanya was on the bench and didnt get on, while current Assistant Manager Ugo Udoji did come on to close the game out in the latter stages.
Both sides had solid away wins 2-0 in the FA Cup to progress to the 2nd Qualifying Round, while in the league Cheshunt have a win, two draws and a loss with six goals scored & Merstham have one win and three losses from their four league games and scored just the once.
Manager Craig Edwards will provide a run out in the friendly at Welling (Tuesday Evening) for a number of players he expects to be involved at the weekend, before moving onto training on Thursday evening with Taylor Mckenzie & Ola Williams reporting back on their minor strains and only Jamie Reynolds currently unavailable through injury.
The Sports Bar will be open from 12-00 with Crystal Palace v Spurs live in the bar and also in the marquee, and it will remain open post match with Chelsea v Aston Villa from 5-30pm.
