Berks & Bucks County Cup reminder: EFL clubs await first round winners

Reading and MK Dons are waiting in the Second Round

Berks & Bucks County Cup reminder: EFL clubs await first round winners

Football in Bracknell published the first round draw for the Berks & Bucks County FA Senior Cup back in August with one major carrot for the winners.

The possibility of a tie with EFL League 2 side MK Dons has been on the agenda for several years in the competition, but this season it’s Reading who are the tie all clubs will be hoping to pull out of the hat for the Second Round draw.

Like MK, Reading’s side will be an under 23 team but that shouldn’t keep crowds away particularly as the Royals have form in playing senior pro’s returning from injury.

As well as Reading, Vanarama National League sides Maidenhead United, Hungerford Town and Slough Town are all possible testing Second Round fixtures for the teams starting in the First Round.
