Robins Draw Hammers

8 August 2013

Cheltenham Town will play West Ham at Upton Park in the second round of the Capital One Cup

The Robins face West Ham United away in the Capital One Cup second round.

The fixture will be played at Upton Park in the week commencing the 26th August.

Cheltenham Town defeated Crawley Town 4-3 (AET) to reach this stage and were unseeded in the draw which led to the second round pairing with the Hammers who are Cheltenham Town chairman Paul Baker's second team.

Ticket information for this fixture will be made available once confirmed.

The Robins have never played West Ham in a competitive match but there has been three pre-season friendly matches. The first was in 1947 in which we lost 5-0 at home. We then played a West Ham XI in 1948 and won 4-1 at home and there was another win in 1952 with a scoreline of 2-1. The trip to Upton Park at the end of this month will be the first time for Cheltenham Town FC.
