Weekend of Cup Action – 2nd Round of the Advantage Print Senior Cup and League Junior Cup

Weekend of Cup Action – 2nd Round of the Advantage Print Senior Cup and League Junior Cup

Pick of the ties in the League Senior Cup sponsored by Advantage Printroom sees FC Meta, struggling to find form in the Premier Division, take on Loveman United, going well in Division 1. Could there be an upset on the cards there!?

Elsewhere, there’s Two all Premier Division ties as Athletico Forest take on Panthers and Finchampstead Athletic play WAB. Like Loveman, other Division 1 teams that will have to overcome Premier teams to progress to the quarter final stage are Winkfield, Athletico Ascot, and AFC Crowthorne Reserves who have been drawn against Morale Madrid, Crowthorne Inn and last seasons finalists Golden Farmer Rangers respectively. There’s one all Division 1 tie between Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW and Woodley United.

The five 2nd round ties in the Junior Cup should run to form with just the one, between Winnersh Town of Division 3 and Golden Farmer Rangers Reserves of Division 2, tough to call. The tie between Bracknell Athletic Reserves and Bracknell Cavaliers Reserves guarantees a spot in the quarter final for one Division 4 team.

In Division 1 Berks County, in 4th, could advantage from other teams at the top playing in the Cup and a win against bottom placed Crowthorne FC could move them into second. The other game to be played in the Division sees 6th placed Finchampstead Athletic Reserves take on 8th placed Bracknell Athletic.

In Division 2 Bracknell Corinthians will look to secure their first points of the season in an away fixture against Ashridge Park, also struggling to find points.

Top game in Division 3 sees 2nd placed Braybrooke Athletic, who trail Bearwood Wanderers by 10 points but have played 3 fewer games, look to close the gap but will be given a stern challenge by 4th placed Bracknell Saint Germain.

The only game to be played in Division 4 gives FC Harmanswater the chance to go top with a win against AFC Crowthorne Old Boys who, themselves, have shown so much early promise!
