Thatcham Town won’t get the opportunity to try and defend their Buildbase FA Vase title following their promotion to step 4 where they will compete in the Buildbase FA Trophy but there are plenty of local sides in action in the Buildbase FA Vase which is the FA competition for sides competing at step 5 to 7.
As well as the Kingfishers winning the competition, both Bracknell Town and Windsor reached the Quarter Finals last season whilst Ascot United have twice reached the last eight in 2012/13 and 2014/15 but all of our local sides will be dreaming of reaching the final at Wembley Stadium.
Windsor are exempt until the Second Round Proper courtest of reaching the Quarter Final last year.
We will bring you the full draw later but the early round draws for our local sides is as follows.
