Chesham United chairman Peter Brown has said the players will look to use ‘the adversity of a 133-mile midweek trip in the middle of winter as inspiration’ in their FA Trophy game with Weston-super-Mare.
Chesham are set to return to action with the game next month, before they resume their league campaign.
Chairman Brown said as part of a club update: “There is much talk about the restart of the season and the FA competitions, but I guess the truth is it all very much depends on how and if we come out of lockdown on 2nd December, but we must plan ahead on the assumption that we will be back on the pitch, with the turnstiles open.
“As it stands at the moment, our league season will start again on December 12th, but before that we will have the next round of the FA Trophy and a trip to Weston-auper-Mare on Tuesday 8th December. As you can imagine, a far from ideal scenario, but I can assure you that having spoken to the management, our players will be fully up for this game and will use the adversity of a 133-mile midweek trip in the middle of winter as inspiration to go out and deliver a victory.
“The plan looks to have successive rounds of the FA Trophy very closely packed together in the lead-up to Christmas – it seems others are more optimistic about the December weather forecast than me!”
