Buckhurst Hill FC are looking to create history when they take on Catholic United in the BBC Essex Premier Cup final tomorrow at Thurrock FC.

The Essex Olympian Football League side made it through to the final for the first time when they beat Waltham Abbey reserves in the last round and are hoping to etch their names into the club’s history books by lifting the trophy.

It has proven to be a successful campaign for Buckhurst Hill on the pitch as they are gunning for promotion under manager Mark Williams , with the club currently sitting top of the Senior Division 1 by six points.

The team also have high hopes off the pitch as well and are hoping to redevelop their ground within the next three years, should planning permission be granted.

Williams took over as Buckhurst Hill’s manager this season, having originally joined the club 14 years ago where he coached the under six team, and his side go into tomorrow’s final in good form, having thrashed Sungate 6-0 at the weekend.

The club also has a successful youth team, with sides from under five to under 18 level, and recently signed a deal to act as one of the development centres for Premier League outfit Crystal Palace.
