FC Fernhill play the one remaining 3rd round tie this weekend in the Berks & Bucks Sunday Intermediate Cup. Datchet Village stand in their way and will provide a stern challenge to the all-conquering team of last season. The quarter final ties are scheduled for Sunday 13th January.
In the Berks & Bucks Sunday Junior Cup Loveman United, Berks County, Bracknell Athletic, AFC Crowthorne Stiffs, Athletico Ascot and Winnersh Rangers all play for a place in the hat for the 4th round draw, ties to be played on Sunday 9th December.
A win for Raglan in the Premier Division this weekend will see them go top though they won’t find it easy against last season’s runners-up Crowthorne Inn. In the other 3 fixtures to be played in the division Athletico Forest will look to continue their progress up the table as they play a struggling Golden Farmer Rangers. Elsewhere WAB play Panthers in a game abandoned during wet weather conditions a month ago whilst an in-form Morale Madrid entertain FC Meta.
Top billing in Division 1 sees Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW (3rd) host Woodley United (5th). Both sides have found winning-form in recent weeks and this should prove to be a cracker. With both the top two of Loveman and AFC Crowthorne Stiffs on Cup duty a win for Wokingham will see them go top. The other two fixtures see Finchampstead Athletic Reserves take on Crowthorne FC whilst Panthers Reserves play Winkfield.
In Division 2 the fixture that will attract the most attention sees Woodley Saints (5th) play Silver Birch Dynamoes (3rd), both of which have shown championship credentials so far his season. At the summit Sandhurst FFC, 4 points clear of Moore Close Manor, travel to Ashridge Park whilst Moore Close play Bracknell Corinthians.
Bearwood Wanderers, who currently top Division 3 by a massive 10 points, will be favourites for the 3 points against Silver Birch A whilst Braybrooke Athletic, in 2nd, will try to remain in touch by beating Bracknell Royals. Third placed Bracknell Saint Germain play Winnersh Town.
Following last season’s impressive campaign, could this be the season Crownwood Dukes achieve promotion? Currently sitting top of Division 4 and 2 points clear they take on AFC Crowthorne Old Boys this weekend. FC Harmanswater (2nd) will look to continue their good form this season and play Silver Birch 1st.
Finally, we remind you of the event taking place this Sunday at South Hill Park to commemorate the 100 years since the end of World War 1 that sees Hope & Anchor and Finchampstead Athletic A play in period kit. Kick off is 2pm.
