Cheshunt – gateway to London. It’s one the town’s tourist board can have if they want; sat there at the bottom end of the A10. Part of the rich tapestry that is Hertfordshire’s footballing fraternity, we’ve come up against the Ambers before – but only for a short time. In the mid-80s, we were league buddies with them. But times have now changed somewhat. We’ve climbed a long way, with our only recent encounters against them coming in pre-season and county cup competition.

Who are Cheshunt?

Let’s hop to it, then. The current Cheshunt are not the same side formed in 1880. As if you know what we’re talking about. So, in a history-shaped nutshell: there was a club by this name between the years of 1880 and 1931. The modern club, however, came to be in 1946 after a group of businessmen wanted the town to have new footballing representation. The amber and black kit is the result of using Crossbrook Sports as its basis.

As is the ‘Ambers’ nickname.

After competing in the London League (twice), the Delphian League and the Aetolian League in the first few seasons, Cheshunt joined the Spartan League in ’63 and won it at the first attempt. So, on they moved again; this time to the Athenian League and a period of a little less moving around.Well, 13 years. In 1977, Cheshunt joined Division Two of the Isthmian League; gaining promotion to Division One just five years later.

How to get to Cheshunt – Travel Information – Distance: 19 miles

By Road

There really isn’t much to this trip. To start with, head over to Ware on the A602; taking the A10 south when you get there. Just as you come to a major roundabout (the first after you join the A10), there’s a left turn for Theobalds Lane. If you don’t already see the ground by this point, you soon will as it’s right there.

With space for 200 vehicles, club’s car park is more than capable of coping with what’s likely to be asked of it.

By Rail

Services to: SEVEN SISTERS

Come out of the station and aim for Theobalds Lane; not the High Street. You might well end up doing this anyway. Turn left and keep going along this road until you almost reach the A10.
