Eight Bracknell Town & District Sunday League teams will be looking to make progress from this weekend’s 2nd round ties in the Berks & Bucks Junior Trophy. At least one team will achieve this as Winnersh Town play Hope & Anchor.
There’s 3 re-arranged ties in the Berks & Bucks Junior Cup (rained off last weekend) that includes the all-Bracknell tie between Berks County and Bracknell Corinthians. Bracknell Cavaliers and AFC Crowthorne Reserves also play.
Topping the Premier Division FC Fernhill will be looking to preserve their position at the summit but face a stern challenge from newly promoted WAB. Elsewhere 2nd placed Finchampstead Athletic will look to keep the pressure on top spot as they entertain a Panthers side searching for their first points of the season. The other two games pit Raglan against Golden Farmer Rangers whilst Athletico Forest take on FC Meta.
This weekend’s three games in Division 1 could see a jostling for position in the middle third of the division. A win for Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW would see them move up one position into 3rd but face a strong challenge from hosts Bracknell Athletic (7th). Athletico Ascot (6th) and Finchampstead Athletic Resereves (5th) square up where a win for either side could move them up two positions. The other game sees 8th placed Woodley United play 11th placed Crowthorne FC.
Top billing in Division 2 sees Golden Farmer Reserves in 2nd face 4th placed Silver Birch Dynamoes. A win for Farmer could see them displace Sandhurst FFC at the top if Sandhurst fail to beat Ashridge Park Royals (9th).
In Division 3 Bearwood Wanderers will look to increase their lead at the top with a win at home to Bracknell Saint Grermain. BSG however will themselves look to build upon recent form with 3 points that would move them closer in touch with the top two.
Could this be the year Crownwood Dukes win promotion from Division 4? Following last season’s strong start in this division that tailed away in the second half, they again find themselves topping the table and a home win this Sunday against FC Harmanswater will well and truly underline their credentials this campaign.
