Holyport target a semi final in Hellenic League Subsidiary Cup




On Saturday Holyport return to action for the first time in two weeks with a home match in the Subsidiary Cup. Their opponents for this tie are Hellenic Division One West side Cirencester Town Development.

Cirencester got to this stage by coming second in their pool, knocking out Division One West leaders Cheltenham Saracens in the process, before having a walkover in the previous round as their opponents, North Leigh United, withdrew from the league.

Port have not lost a game in the Subsidiary Cup this year, topping their pool with 5 wins and a draw before thumping Chalvey Sports 6-1 in the previous round. The winner will progress to the semi-final of the tournament.

In the Combined Counties League Division One Eversley & California face a tough test in their continued bid to avoid relegation as they travel to face Farnham Town.

Farnham, who were relegated from the Combined Counties Premier Division last season, are currently 5th in the table and will still be harbouring hopes of promotion, although they will need to finish the season strongly to achieve that ambition.

Eversley have suffered two defeats on the bounce, the most recent being a narrow 1-0 loss at home to Bagshot on Tuesday. The Boars performance that match was much improved, but they will need to make sure good performances get them points to stay up this season.

Also in the Combined Counties Division One Sandhurst Town travel to face Dorking Wanderers Reserves. Dorking currently sit in 10th in the table, 1 place and 2 points behind the Fizzers, although they have played 5 more games.

A win for Sandhurst would put some distance between themselves and the teams below them, and leave them looking ahead at trying to achieve a top 6 finish, with games against all the sides competing with them for that goal still to come

In the Hellenic Division One East Wallingford Town take on the league’s bottom side Chinnor at the Hithercroft. Chinnor were on a 15-game losing run in the league, having not taken a point since early September, but that ended in spectacular fashion in mid-week when they thrashed fellow strugglers Abingdon Town 7-0.

A win for Wally be their first in the league in a month and could see them climb as high as 4th in the table as they look to finish their season on a high.
