It’s a three day FA Vase weekend

Matches over three days as Wokingham prepares for first FA tie in 20 years

It’s a three day FA Vase weekend

The 2019/20 Buildbase FA Vase is in the starting gates with the runners and riders setting off across a three day feast of cup football at the weekend.

Thanks to Binfield, Ascot United and Wokingham & Emmbrook moving their fixtures from the traditional Saturday afternoon, it’ll be possible to watch three consecutive days of Vase football starting at 7.45pm on Friday.

The First Qualifying Round of the competition pitches Binfield at home to Virginia Water on Friday night while Ascot travel to Fleet Town for their tie.

On Saturday, there are away days for Eversley & California at Abingdon United and Sandhurst Town at Clanfield in Hampshre while Woodley United head to the picturesque Wiltshire town of Malmesbury.
