Whilst I have no issue with the nice people of Cheshunt it really is a poor show by the Herts FA not to have the County Ground in a fit state to stage the Senior Cup Final - their showpiece event - TWO YEARS running!!!
I do hope that both Hitchin and Stortford have registered their displeasure and that the Herts FA will pay for the ground hire out of their reserves rather than taking their usual "skim" off the gate receipts which are much needed by our clubs.
I am sure both sets of supporters will enjoy their night at the cup final (let's hope we enjoy it more then they) but I sincerely hope that before the proceedings begin both sets of supporters can voice their displeasure at our incompetent FA. I shall be in my own quiet way.

Well said Ian. Last year we were told it was a problem with the floodlights. Is there any information about why the County Ground isn't being used this year? Does it get used for any games these days?

I was told the lights still haven't been fixed!
There are some lamps out but there are still quite bright.
Made in Germany!

Although it was good enough for the U18 final last season. Maybe younger players have better eyesight?

Incompetent indeed.
The County ground should be fit for purpose.By that I mean playing football.
They appear to have spent a lot on doing up offices, executive rooms etc.
Typical of FAs throughout the Country.
The priorities are wrong.
Clubs have to be part of the FA but seem to get nothing in return.
And as for the timing.Well....

Just to advise that our Herts Senior Cup Final against Bishops Stortford on Tuesday 11th April will now be played at Hemel Hempstead FC, not Cheshunt FC as originally scheduled.
If you don't challenge the status quo, you don't change for tomorrow.......
