Football in Bracknell
Previews

It’s the weekend. There is football happening!

If you are looking to support a local team tomorrow then there are plenty of matches to choose from.

Both Ascot United and Bracknell Town are at home in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division hosting Brackley Town Saints and Longlevens AFC respectively.

In depth: What to expect as Binfield travel to Brimscombe and Bracknell host Longlevens

Victory for Ascot United will ensure they finish in fourth place which is a great achievement while they also have a cup final to look forward to.

Bracknell will jump one place up to thirteenth if they can see off Longlevens who defeated the Robins 3-1 in Mark Tallentire’s first match in charge. One thing for sure is that it’s a different Bracknell side now who will be looking to win and secure their Premier Division survival.

Wokingham & Emmbrook make the short journey to Highmoor-IBIS in what will be Highmoor’s last league match at Palmer Park before moving to Scours Lane next season. The Sumas could officially finish second bottom but would need to win their last three matches and hope Abingdon United lose their last two.

Binfield make the long journey west to play the friendly bunch at Brimscombe & Thrupp in Gloucestershire. The Moles are currently in eighth – one place and one point below B&T – and could climb up to sixth with a victory if Thame United also lose.

Division 1 East

In Division One East, Finchampstead travel to Wantage Town Reserves. Finch are currently eighth and will finish comfortably in the middle of the pack.
