The FA Vase Second Round takes centre stage this weekend with the unusual site of not one but three Berkshire clubs involved.
Bracknell Town and Thatcham Town both have ties on Saturday while Windsor make the trip towards Kent on Sunday afternoon with the prize of involvement in the Third Round draw on Monday.
The Robins have released three players this week and confirmed via twitter that Kensley Maloney has suffered a set back in his rehab after knee surgery earlier in the season meaning he’ll certainly be missing from Larges Lane for a while.
Virginia Water and AFC Aldermaston meet in the Hellenic League Cup while Ascot United have a long Gloucestershire away day to Bishop’s Cleeve Development, Binfield head to Chinnor and Sandhurst Town visit Division 1 West leaders Ardley United.
On Sunday it’s a full Thames Valley Women’s League Cup programme for our local sides while in the SRWFL it’s a first ever derby between Woodley United and Wokingham & Emmbrook in Northern Division 1, that promises to be one to watch!
All the weekends fixtures are below and start at 3pm unless otherwise stated. If in doubt, please always check with the host club before you travel
