Bracknell Town head in to the FA Trophy on Saturday for the first time since 2009/10 when they travel to Sussex to face Haywards Heath Town in the Preliminary Round.
Last time out, the Robins were beaten 8-1 at home by Thatcham Town capping a fairly miserable run in the competition since 2002/03 when they were promoted to the Isthmian League Division 1.
It’s been an extraordinary few days for the club who have seen two players called up for England international duty and a home draw against Reading in the County Cup.
Elsewhere it’s a long away day for Binfield at Lydney Town in the Hellenic League Premier Division while Reading City make the slightly shorter trip to Royal Wootton Bassett Town and there could be a debut for Harry Swabey as Woodley United host Cirencester Town Development in the League Cup.

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.
