With Christmas fast approaching there’s the small matter of a festive non-league football fixture programme to contend with.
The Thames Valley Premier League takes a break over Christmas with the last games on Saturday 15th December before they resume fixtures again on Saturday 5th January.
Most local clubs have a very full 22nd December with local Combined Counties clubs Eversley & California facing Sandhurst Town. Wokingham & Emmbrook host top of the table Burnham at Larges Lane in Hellenic Division One East.
Boxing Day sees Virginia Water face Windsor at Stag Meadow where the landlords play “away” at the tenants.
Bracknell Town play on the 22nd December and have more than a week off before their next game. The majority of the Bostik South Central will play fixtures on the 29th December, but Bracknell instead will play on New Year’s Day. Bracknell face a trip to Cheshunt to play FC Romania on the 22nd before hosting Westfield on 1st January.
As well as the Christmas fixtures, there’s the small matter of the FiB Christmas drink on Thursday 20th December.
As always, an particularly with the weather please check with the host club before you travel. Kick offs are 3pm unless otherwise stated
