Millers stand in FA Trophy path


Carshalton Athletic are in cup action once again this weekend as they entertain Cray Valley PM in the FA Trophy 3rd Qualifying Round on Saturday 8th October (3pm kick off).

This will be the first time the two sides have met in a competitive fixture, with the only previous meeting coming in a pre-season friendly in the shortened 2020-21 season.

For the visiting Millers, this is only their fourth season competing in the FA Trophy, after they lost in the final of the FA Vase in 2018/19 and gained promotion to the Isthmian League that same season. They have reached this stage of the competition with high scoring wins over Lancing and East Thurrock United.

In their most recent outing, they faced Lancing again in the league, coming away with a 1-1 draw this time that left them 7th in the Isthmian League South East, with nine points from six games played.

Carshalton will look to find their scoring boots after going scoreless in the last two games, including a 2-0 reverse to Havant and Waterlooville in the FA Cup last Saturday.

Saturday’s game will see the return to Colston Avenue of two recent Robins favourites, Dan Bennett and Kershaney Samuels. Bennett, who scored seven times for Carshalton last season, has been in fine scoring form for the Millers so far, already matching that total. Two other Cray Valley PM squad members have also spent time at Carshalton – Antone Douglas and Kiki Oshilaja.
