Football in Bracknell

Weekend: Tough tests for Binfield and Windsor, Bracknell host basement side Burnham

Sandhurst vs Aldermaston is game of the day in Division 1 East

Weekend: Tough tests for Binfield and Windsor, Bracknell host basement side Burnham

If Binfield or Windsor want to collect three points tomorrow in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division they will have to do it the hard way with both having tough away matches.

The Moles travel to fourth placed Flackwell Heath and had hoped to catch and overtake the Heathens but a recent good Flackwell run makes it improbable although victory tomorrow would help Roger Herridge’s cause.

It’s even tougher for Windsor who have to travel to second placed Thatcham Town where Shane Cooper-Clark and Liam Ferdinand have scored a combined 49 league goals which coincidentally is the exact number of Hellenic goals Mick Woodham’s entire side have scored this season.

On paper at least it’s an easier prospect for Bracknell Town who host basement side Burnham at Larges Lane and the aim for the Robins will surely be to get through the match unscathed ahead of next weekend’s Buildbase FA Vase quarter final.

The standout match in Division 1 East sees Sandhurst Town host AFC Aldermaston. The Atomics played very well in large parts last time around though a mad ten minutes undid them against Penn & Tylers Green.

Wokingham & Emmbrook travel to Chinnor with Sumas boss Dan Bateman admitting he has already started planning ahead for next season.

Last but by no means least in the Hellenic League, Virginia Water make the journey to Bishops Cleeve Development in the Bluefin Sports Hellenic Challenge Cup knowing that victory will send them into the quarter finals and a home tie with Bracknell.

There’s a tasty match in the Suburban Football League Premier Division as Binfield Res/Dev host Maidenhead United who sit one place above the Moles in third place.

In the Central Division, Ascot United Dev host Farnham  Town whilst Bracknell Town Dev travel to basement side Eversley & California,

Following an earlier postponement, Wokingham & Emmbrook make the short journey to Highmoor Ibis on Monday night in the Reading Invitational Senior Cup.
