In the Hellenic League Division One East two local sides meet in a Berkshire derby as AFC Aldermaston host Wokingham & Emmbrook. The teams have met three times already this season in league and cup action with the Atom Men winning on two occasions and the other ending in a draw. The three games have seen 14 goals and 2 red cards, so it could be an action packed afternoon at the Rec Soc.

Holyport will look to continue the form that has seen them win their last seven games when they welcome Didcot Town Development to Summerleaze Village. Those results saw Port named Hellenic Division One team of the month for October and on Tuesday they inflicted a first league defeat of the season on Thame Rangers, beating them 3-0. Didcot will be playing only their second league game in eight weeks and they currently sit in tenth position on the table.

Woodley United entertain Abingdon Town at Scours Lane. The two sides met in the first game of the season and played out a 10-goal thriller, with Abingdon eventually winning 6-4. At the end of September, the Abbotts were top of the league and Woodley firmly rooted to the bottom, but a change in fortune for both sides means that if the Kestrels win on Saturday they will draw level with their opponents in the table.

In the Combined Counties League Division One Eversley & California host Ash United at the ESA Ground. The Boars are playing their first game in December after going unbeaten throughout November. Ash currently sit 9th in the table, four places above Eversley.

Sandhurst Town make a trip to Surrey to face Godalming Town. The Fizzers will be looking to avenge the loss they suffered in the reverse fixture earlier in the season with Godalming running out 3-1 winners on that occasion. Despite being one of the pre-season favourites for promotion the G’s currently sit in 14th in the table and haven’ t won in the league since that victory at Sandhurst back in September.
