Three Berkshire sides in the hat for the FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round draw

Slough Town and Hungerford Town will be joined by Vanarama National League side Maidenhead United in Monday’s draw for the 2017/18 FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round draw on Monday afternoon.

The Rebels came from behind to beat National League South side Poole Town at Arbour Park 2-1 while Hungerford Town are in the hat after a 1-1 draw with Billericay Town and face a replay on Tuesday night.

Maidenhead United are in the draw for the first time, their status as a National League Premier side giving them a bye from all but one of the qualifying rounds.

How far as each side reached in the competition?

Hungerford – Reached the first round proper once in 79/80 but were beaten by Slough

Maidenhead – Have reached the first round proper on eight occasions, the most recent was the 15/16 season when they took Port Vale to a replay

Slough – Played in the Second Round Proper on no less than six occasions – arguably the most famous was the 04/05 competition when they beat Paul Merson’s Walsall in the first round
