Bracknell Town in League Cup and Ascot United at Stag Meadow

Yellamen are back on track in the Hellenic League Premier and Bracknell can secure a last eight place

Bracknell Town in League Cup and Ascot United at Stag Meadow

Bracknell Town face Bostik League North Division side Felixstowe & Walton United in the Velocity Trophy Third Round on Tuesday night.

The visitors are 9th in the North Division with 20 points from 15 games and have an unenviable five hour round trip from East Suffolk. Thankfully the match will be settled on the night.

If Bracknell progress to the Quarter Finals, they will one of only two Division 1 sides left in the competition with rest of the sides hailing from the Premier Division.

Hellenic League

Elsewhere, Ascot United hit the road for a short trip to Stag Meadow and Virginia Water in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division.

The Yellamen had been on a run of draws but recent wins over Reading City and Windsor will have boosted confidence.

It’s been a bit of a mixed run for newly promoted Virginia Water with two wins, two draws and two defeats in the last six league fixtures.

In Division 1 East there’s a decent looking tie between Holyport and Thame Rangers at Summerleaze. Both sides have been among the form sides this season with the latter especially yet to taste defeat in the league.
