A number of our teams look to progress through to the 3rd round of the Berks & Bucks Junior Cup with ties across the County. There are two all-Bracknell ties as Berks County play Bracknell Corinthians and Moore Close Manor take on Winnersh Rangers.
Bracknell Cavaliers, Golden Farmer Rangers Reserves, Ashridge Park, Athletico Ascot, Silver Birch A, Bracknell Athletic and AFC Crowthorne Reserves all play. Loveman United are already through as their opponents AFC Marlow HG no longer exist. Having received a bye through the 1st round Loveman have now reached the 3rd round without kicking a ball!
One 1st round tie in the League Junior Cup is to be played between Bracknell Athletic Reserves of Division 4 and Braybrooke Athletic of Division 3.
There’s a full programme of fixtures in the Premier Division this weekend. Top game sees an unbeaten FC Fernhill, looking to preserve their 100% winning start to the season, take on Crowthorne Inn who themselves will look to get their season kick-started. Elsewhere, 2nd and 3rd placed Finchampstead Athletic and Morale Madrid will look to keep the pressure on Fernhill at the top as they play Golden Farmer Rangers and FC Meta respectively.
Elsewhere, in-form Raglan take on Athletico Forest, still finding their feet following their move from the Reading League, and two other new boys to the Division, WAB and Panthers, go head-to-head.
None of the top 3 in Division 1 play this weekend due to County Cup action, and the two games to be played sees Winkfield, buoyed by their first win of their campaign last weekend, play Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW whilst Panthers Reserves play Finchampstead Athletic Reserves.
Top billing in Division 2 sees Woodley Saints (3rd) play Silver Birch Dynamoes (4th). A win for either team will see them move to the top. The only other game in the Division sees Ashridge Park Royals host 3M.
A win for Bearwood Wanderers against Running House will see them preserve their 100% start to the season and stretch their lead at the top of Division 3 to 9 points. Running House have shown much improvement in form from last season and will provide Bearwood a stern challenge.
In what is proving to be a hugely competitive Division 4, AFC Crowthorne Old Boys (3rd) play Bracknell Cavaliers Reserves (5th) whilst Silver Birch (6th), confident at the start of the season of a strong challenge for the title, have struggled to find any form and travel to FC Harmanswater (4th). With top team Crownwood Dukes not playing this weekend, AFC Crowthorne particularly will be hoping for a win to close the gap on the leaders.
