Date for Bracknell Town’s County Cup tie with Reading FC confirmed

Bracknell Town have confirmed the date for their eagerly anticipated Berks & Bucks FA County Senior Cup Second Round tie with Reading.

The Championship side will visit Larges Lane on Tuesday 30th October according to a tweet sent out by the Robins on Tuesday afternoon.

Reading will likely be represented by and under 23s team as fellow EFL club MK Dons do in the County competition but the Royals have fielded a number of first team fringe and players coming back from injury in the side in recent weeks.

Bracknell beat Aylesbury 4-1 in the first round and drew Reading out of the hat when the draw was made on Friday at Berks & Bucks County headquarters.

Neighbours Binfield will have a glamour tie themselves if they can get past Wantage Town on Tuesday night. The winners will face MK Dons at home. The full second round draw is here.
