Chippenham play at Hardenhuish Park, which has a capacity of 3,000, and they are currently 12th place in their league and progressed into the first round thanks to a 3-0 win at Whyteleafe on Saturday.

They are managed by Mark Collier, who has previously managed Swindon Supermarine and coached in the academy at Swindon Town.
