Shots Host Burgess Hill Town in FA Trophy

Aldershot Town will host unbeaten Ryman League Division One South side Burgess Hill Town in the FA Trophy first round on Saturday 13 December.

The Hillians, managed by former Brighton and Gillingham defender Ian Chapman, progressed to the first round in thrilling style, coming from 2-0 down against Ryman Premier Division team Leatherhead to score three goals in the final 25 minutes.

Having entered the competition at the Preliminary Round stage, they had already beaten Aveley, Chesham United and, following a replay, Folkestone Invicta, to reach last weekend’s Third Qualifying Round.

Burgess Hill Town are currently unbeaten in 17 League games in 2014-15, and sit third in the table, five points behind leaders Faversham Town but with five games in hand.

Full details, including ticket prices, will be announced as soon as possible.
