The ‘Gate are back at home on Friday Night under the lights at Hartsdown Park as we welcome Cheshunt for matchday four of the Isthmian Premier Division!

Tickets for this fixture can be purchased by clicking here. 

Last Saturday we travelled to The Aspect Arena to face Concord Rangers and we came away 2-1 winners thanks to goals from Sam Blackman and Steve Cawley. Manager Reece Prestedge was “disappointed” that Margate didn’t kill the game off earlier after being 2-0 up inside nine minutes.. You can watch the full interview on our YouTube channel by clicking here.

Despite taking two knocks to the head last Saturday, Harrison Hatfull could be fit to play on Friday alongside Tyrone Sterling who could return to the starting line-up, after he pulled out during the warm-up. Roberto Ratti remains on the sidelines through injury.

Cheshunt, also known as The Ambers, were founded in 1946 and play at Theobalds Lane. Along with Concord Rangers, Cheshunt were also relegated from the Vanarama National League South last season finishing in 23rd place out of 24. They are managed by Craig Edwards, who has been in charge since January 2nd 2018.

Cheshunt have struggled at the start of the season as they sit in 18th place on one point. They drew 1-1 with Hastings on opening day and then suffered successive losses to Billericay (0-1) and Chatham Town (1-2). The ‘Gate have started positively and sit in 7th after beating Whitehawk on the opening day 2-1 before losing to Hornchurch 4-1.They returned to winning ways at Concord 2-1 last weekend.

The ‘Gate and The Ambers have faced four times since September 2019 with Margate winning one, Cheshunt winning one and two ending in a draw. The most recent meeting ended 2-2 at Hartsdown Park back in December 2021 with Margate’s goals coming from Calvin Ekpiteta and Vance Bola. Highlights from that game can be found on our YouTube channel or watch them by clicking here

The man in the middle for Friday’s game is Teddy Osborn and he will be assisted by Chris Cannon (assistant referee one), and Nik Garside (assistant referee two).
