FA Cup Hopes For Chinnor - 9 July
Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One East Chinnor secure place in FA Cup for only the second time in the history of the club.
Last Friday's Emirates FA Cup draw confirmed the acceptance of Chinnor in the prestigious cup for the second time ever. The club played in the competition for the first time the season before last, when they travelled to Camberley Town in the Extra Preliminary round only to be defeated.
This season has seen them been drawn at home to Combined Counties Premier League side Hartley Wintney FC. A side that were one win away from the First around proper last season.
"What a fantastic draw for us" mentioned assistant manager Craig Williams. "We missed out on qualification last season, and after equalling our highest ever finish we have been accepted this season. For a village team to play in such a world famous competition is fantastic. We come up against a team we know nothing about and for a home tie the draw has worked in all our favours. We know a even bigger tie awaits us in the next round where we come up against Southern League side Banbury United, but we have our first hurdle to jump first"
The tie will be played over the weekend of 14 - 16 August.
The club were also drawn away to Carterton FC of the Uhlsport Hellenic League Divison 1 East in the FA Vase on Saturday September 5.
