Midweek: Sandhurst Town’s FA Cup replay and Ascot United head to Holmer




Sandhurst Town head to the New Forest on Wednesday night for an FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round replay.

The Fizzers held Wessex League Premier Division side Lymington Town to a 1-1 draw on Saturday at Bottom Meadow with first team coach Darryl Jelly rueing missed chances.

Jelly tweeted: “Shouldn’t be but I’m disappointed with the 1-1 draw. We had a couple of good chances to get through to the next round but we go again Wednesday. Looking forward to the challenge that Lymington Town provide.”

Paul Rake scored his first competitive goal for Sandhurst since transferring from Holyport and he’ll need his shooting boots again against a Lymington side who play a division higher in the Sydenhams Wessex League Premier Division.

Reading City also face an FA Cup replay, the Scours Lane side drew 1-1 with Chipping Sodbury on Saturday and face a lengthy trip to Gloucestershire for the replay.

The ‘as it stands’ FA Cup Preliminary Round draw already has Binfield, Ascot United and Thatcham Town confirmed and can be seen here.

In the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division Ascot United are on the road to division new comers Holmer Green looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season, and with Nathan Minhas in great form you wouldn’t bet against them.

Meanwhile Virginia Water have started their maiden step 5 season with two solid draws and host Northamptonshire side Brackley Town Saints at Stag Meadow.

All Saturday matches kick-off at 3pm, all Sunday matches kick-off at 2pm and all midweek matches kick-off at 7.45pm unless detailed next to the above fixtures. Please always check with the host club before you travel if you are in any doubt.
