History will be made for all the Buckhurst Hill Football Club Family when the club makes its first ever appearance in the FA Cup – in the Extra Preliminary Round at home to Walthamstow on Saturday, August 6 (3pm kick off).
Club chairman Simon Cornwell said: “What an inspiration for every five-year-old upwards that joins their local football club that one day they can wear the blue / black stripes in the most famous football competition in the world.
“This is down to every trustee, committee member, manager, coach, parent, grandparent and player both current and in the past that have all played a part in realising our dreams.
“I would like to personally thank each one of you.
“We salute you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
He added: “We look forward to seeing the whole community get behind the boys and be a part of a piece of history for little old Buckhurst Hill.”
