Loveman United this weekend travel to Maidenhead to take on Cosmos who currently occupy 8th position (of 8 teams) in Division 2 of the Thames Valley Sunday League, their opponents in the quarter-final of the Berks & Bucks Sunday Junior Cup.
Loveman can call upon the advice of Bracknell Sunday League teams Winnersh Rangers and Bracknell Athletic who Cosmos have already beaten in the competition.
Loveman, however, have the better of the two teams’ form going into the tie, on paper at least, and have players amongst their ranks that have tasted victory at this stage of a County competition previously with Whitegrove. Football in Bracknell wish Loveman every success in their tie on Sunday.
