The draw for the quarter finals of the 2017/18 Buildbase FA Vase will take place on Monday 5th February at 1pm with Berkshire sides Bracknell Town, Thatcham Town and Windsor all in the hat for the last eight.
For Bracknell Town and Windsor it will be their first ever appearance in the quarter finals – the Robins have previously made the fifth round but lost out to Great Yarmouth Town while Thatcham made the quarters in the 1988/89 season – losing out to West Berkshire neighbours Hungerford Town.
The draw will be live on Talksport 2, the Digital Radio station at 1pm during Ray Stubb’s programme with the station’s non league expert Tony Incenzo in charge of proceedings.
All the matches bar one went ahead at the weekend and the Football Association have confirmed the following numbers for the draw:
- Wolverhampton SC or Leighton Town
- Thatcham Town
- Marske United
- Bracknell Town
- 1874 Northwich
- Stockton Town
- Melksham Town
The potential for long away days remains with Marske and Stockton Town outside Middlesbrough and 1874 Northwich south of Manchester. The three remaining Berkshire sides could also draw each other.
What’s certain is that starting on Saturday 24 February, there are just three matches until a Wembley Final which would be an incredible achievement for all sides. Here’s the remaining Vase round dates.
Looking for the full draw? It’ll be here from 1pm.
