Weekend: Binfield’s opening day and a promotion clash for Bracknell Town at Larges Lane




It’s Binfield’s big opening day for their refurbished facility on Saturday when they host Brackley Town Saints at Hill Farm Lane in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division.

The Moles will have Windsor & Maidenhead MP Adam Afriyie in attendance for the opening as they look to build on their five match unbeaten run.

Elsewhere it’s a promotion place tussle for Bracknell Town who are at home to Thatcham Town, the Robins won all four meetings between the sides last season but it’s the Kingfisher’s who hold the upper hand this time around – winning the one meeting so far 3-0 while Ascot United will hope to debut new striker Ben Harris when they travel to Brimscombe & Thrupp.

There’s a derby of sorts in Divsion 1 East as Wokingham & Emmbrook head to Virginia Water – the hosts ground share with Windsor at Stag Meadow and in the Combined Counties League, Division 1 leaders Eversley & California head to Cobham.
