After bemoaning the last seven days with a football free midweek, we’ve now got a full programme of Uhlsport Hellenic Premier League games across three days starting with the visit of Burnham to Binfield on Monday night.
Also in action across the week are Bracknell Town playing their first game at their temporary home of Sandhurst Town’s Bottom Meadow and Ascot United who are on the road.
It is Binfield though that kick us off though on Monday night and they host a club in a bit of a ‘crisis’ – if such a thing exists three games into a football season.
Roger Herridge’s Binfield are unbeaten in their opening two league games with a big win on Saturday against Lydney Town, but it is visitors Burnham who have some big questions to answer – not least how to turn around two straight league defeats and four red cards in their first two league games since relegation from the Southern Football League. Read the report from Binfield 4 Burnham 0 here.
On Tuesday night Bracknell Town have a big test when they host unbeaten Highmoor-IBIS at Sandhurst Town’s Bottom Meadow – the first time Mark Tallentire’s side will play out of their temporary home.
For Highmoor it’s a bit of a return to form after an indifferent 2015/16 and they have the added bonus of well travelled forward Yashwa Romeo who has tormented the Robins down the years for the likes of Burnham and Marlow.
Bracknell themselves can welcome back George Short from both injury and suspension as well as an in-form Adam Cornell who already has four goals this season.
And on to Wednesday it’s Ascot United who have the opportunity to make it two wins in three when they visit Highworth Town.
The Worthians are suprising early strugglers, without a point so far after finishing seventh last season and Ascot are certainly in form early on after narrowly losing their opening game to a last minute goal.
