The FA Cup Third Qualifying Round draw and remaining Berkshire clubs

Two Berkshire sides left in the early rounds of the competition

The FA Cup Third Qualifying Round draw and remaining Berkshire clubs

Two sides from the Royal County remain in contention for the 2018/19 Emirates FA Cup following Saturday’s fixtures, although for Hungerford Town it is in slightly unusual fashion.

The Crusaders match at home to Wantage Town was abandoned on 70 minutes after goalkeeper Jokull Andersson suffered severe head and facial injuries while attempting to make a save.

The match will be replayed from the start on Tuesday 25th September but it means both teams are in the hat for the latest draw.

Slough Town are also in the draw following a surprise 2-2 draw with Wessex League Premier Division side Sholing. The Rebels are three divisions higher than the South Coast side but were held thanks to an 81st minute equaliser after initially leading 2-0 through Ben Harris and James Dobson.
