A few ifs here but if we are able to start playing again on the weekend of Saturday 19th December will our scheduled home game with Kempston have to be moved to the Sunday if Chesham beat Aveley in the Trophy and secure a home game with Torquay in the next round on the 19th?

Lots of ifs and buts Lee, but the answer to your last point is most definitely a yes.  They would have priority for the day.

It's potentially a great Trophy draw for them if they beat Aveley, although Aveley have just beaten Hastings in the last round of the Trophy, who in turn dumped Chesham out of the FA Cup! :)

If they do beat Aveley, the frustrating thing for all at Chesham would be the reduced revenue for what would, in a normal season, be a real money spinning tie.  I expect they will do all they can to maximise revenue on the day, pressurising the local council to allow them to offer some form of bar/hospitality.

I saw a tweet earier today from Halesowen who said they expect a re-start in early/mid January, though that's still only an estimation.

We are no nearer a restart than we were when the league was suspended.  All eyes on the league after their meeting on 16th Dec, to see what they decide.
