Miles Rutherford knows the magical memories an FA Cup run can bring.

Which is why he might just mention a Tuesday night in Dover as he inspires his Chichester City side ahead of the club’s biggest tie in years.

The BetVictor Isthmian south side host Enfield, who are third in the division above, in the third qualifying round tomorrow.

City boss Rutherford has his own fond cup memories, including a part in the Worthing side which reached the first round proper 20 years ago.

The fourth qualifying round replay, when Rebels won at Conference high-flyers Dover, is among his best footballing memories.

As is the subsequent first round tie at League Two leaders Rotherham United, which Worthing lost 3-0 after Ben Carrington had gone close to giving them a shock lead.

Rutherford accepts this is a huge chance for Chi to boost finances and support levels as they look to pull in a crowd of 400 or so.

But he will also tell his players they can enjoy moments money cannot buy if they pull off an upset.

He told The Argus: “We are not getting ahead of ourselves.

“We know it is still a long way to go to get to the first round.

“But it has been a good run so far and I will tell the players that the FA Cup is something you can look back on.

“It’s a fantastic competition and, if you make it through to the first round proper, that is massive for a non-league player.

“You can look back on games like Havant going to Liverpool a few years ago. That is still talked about now.

“I’ve been talking about things like that with the players.

“You remember those special cup ties even more than league games because there are so many league games.

“Beating Dover away with Worthing was the sort of achievement you don’t get very often.

“But we know Enfield will be our toughest game so far this season.”

Chichester is one of the smallest cities in the country in terms of population.

But it is still something of a surprise their football club is not higher-profile or further up the ladder.

Rutherford said “Chichester have struggled over the last ten years and we would love to get a bigger fanbase.

“The bigger the crowd you get, the bigger the club is – simple as that.

“We would love to get a big following on Saturday and hopefully people like what they see.

“Our attendances are slowly going up.

“Last year we were getting 50 or 60, this year we have been averaging 180, which is good for us.

“If we can get 300 or 400 for this tie, it would be fantastic.”

Chichester’s squad includes Connor Cody, who skippered them to the Southern Combination title last season, as well as ex-Bognor favourites Jimmy Wild and Corey Heath.

Admission to the tie is £8 for adults, £4 concessions and £1 for under-18s and students. Under-16s get in free.
