This weekend’s Bracknell Town & District Sunday League fixtures include the all-Premier Division tie in the County Intermediate Cup, the conclusion of the last 16 ties in the County Junior Cup and top of the table battles in divisions 1, 3 and 4.
In Cup action this weekend Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW and William Twigg Vets will look to settle their Berks & Bucks Sunday Intermediate Cup last 16 tie following 2 postponements before Christmas. Elsewhere, the one remaining tie in the last 16 of the Berks & Bucks Junior Cup sees Raglan of Division 1 travel to play Datchet Village. A County Cup update is provided later.
In the Premier Division top team Crowthorne Inn will look to put further distance between themselves and the chasing pack but face a stern challenge from 3rd placed FC Meta. Other fixtures are FC Fernhill (5th) v. Finchampstead Athletic (3rd) and Golden Farmer Rangers v. Morale Madrid.
Undoubtedly the top fixture in Division 1 sees Loveman United (2nd) take on WAB. WAB currently occupy top spot 10 points clear of their closest challengers and Sundays opponents though Loveman have played 4 games less. Elsewhere 3rd placed AFC Crowthorne travel to play Sandhurst FFC (11th) and Binfield Royals (5th) host Winkfield (6th).
As unbeaten Warfield United have no game in Division 2 this weekend Woodley United could stretch to 5 points clear at the top with a win against Bracknell Saint Germain (10th) whilst Athletico Ascot (3rd) will look to maintain their challenge for top spot but face a tough challenge from 4th placed Berks County.

It’s top against 2nd in Division 3 as Woodley Saints take on WAB Reserves. The two have equal number of points (23) and have played the same number of games (10), however Saints have a much better goal difference and occupy top spot. Bracknell Corinthians (3rd) could capitalise from defeat by either of the top 2 sand victory against bottom team Berkshire United would move them into 2nd position.
It’s top versus 2nd in Division 4 too as Silver Birch A (top) take on 2nd placed Finchampstead Athletic A at Finch whilst 3rd placed Bracknell Royals travel to FC Harmanswater (5th). Victory for Birch will give them a commanding 4 point gap at the top whilst victory for Royals will keep them in touch. (FiB understand that teams will play each other once again as there’s only 8 teams in the division).
