Midweek: Ascot United and Bracknell Town meet in derby, first ever floodlit game for Virginia Water

The big derby on Tuesday night focuses on the London Road and a visit for managerless Bracknell Town who head the short distance to neighbours Ascot United in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division (ko 7.45pm).

United have struggled this season and have picked up just the four points – their only win of the campaign came at home to Burnham in August and they picked up a point on a 4-4 draw at Fairford Town on Tuesday.

The Yellamen have though added to their ranks with former Bracknell right back George Lock joining from Binfield though it is the third placed Robins who will go in to the game as favourites and will be led by coach and former Beaconsfield SYCOB manager Geoff Warner.

Elsewhere the Perpetua Press Floodlit Cup kicks off it’s 2017/18 competition with a first ever game under floodlights for Virginia Water – the Division 1 East leaders – at Stag Meadow against Milton United.

The Waters have started strongly following their promotion from the Surrey Elite Intermediate League and have picked up 14 points from seven games in the league this season.

Also in action are AFC Aldermaston who head to Henley Town and on Wednesday Sandhurst Town head to Thame Rangers.
