HERTS SENIOR CHALLENGE CUP SEMI-FINAL
Cheshunt and Hemel Hempstead Town will both be targeting an appearance in the final of the Hertfordshire FA Senior Challenge Cup as they meet in the semi-finals on Tuesday evening.
The Ambers will be aiming to go one better than last season when they were knocked out by Boreham Wood at the semi-final stage, but will face a tough task against National League South opposition.
Craig Edwards’ side have the chance to bounce back from back-to-back defeats including last week’s Hertfordshire Charity Cup defeat to Berkhamsted, which leaves the Challenge Cup and Velocity Trophy as the two remaining chances for silverware.
With Cheshunt sitting 19th in the Isthmian Premier Division, there are 30 places between them and their higher-ranked opponents, who sit 11th in the National League South.
The Ambers will be buoyed by having a full squad available except for Tommie Hession-Harris, who remains sidelined through injury, with Amadou Kassarate’s suspension not kicking in until Saturday.
The Tudors seem to have put their miserable start to the year behind them following a run of nine games without a win, having gone three games without defeat ahead of Tuesday’s meeting.
To reach the semi-finals, Hemel Hemsptead have so far seen off St Margaretsbury (2-0), Potters Bar Town (1-0) and Hitchin Town (3-2), and have also enjoyed cup success in the Charity Cup as they face Royston Town in the semi-finals next week.
Sammy Moore will be without the services of Aron Davies who has returned to Maidenhead United following the completion of his loan, but otherwise should have a full squad to select from.
Tuesday’s game takes place at the Stadium, Theobalds Lane, postcode EN8 8RU. Kick-off is 7.45pm, and admission prices are just £10 adults, £5 concessions and £1 U16s. COYAMBERS.Back +
