Monday night team news in Hellenic League Challenge Cup

Binfield face Chalvey Sports and Reading City host Holyport on Monday night

Monday night team news in Hellenic League Challenge Cup

Two matches on what promises to be a very wet Monday night in the Bluefin Sport Hellenic League Challenge Cup at Binfield and Reading City.

The Moles face Division One East side Chalvey Sports at Hill Farm Lane while The Citizens bring Holyport to The Rivermoor.

Football in Berkshire spoke to the managers of each side – Roger Herridge, Matty Young, Simon Johnson and Derek Sweetman ahead of the fixtures.

The big question of course though is, brolly or mack?

Binfield vs Chalvey Sports

Roger Herridge: No Josh Helmore, Liam Gavin or Joel Valentin tonight. I will be looking to rotate the squad a little.

Matty Young: We take 15 with us to Binfield tonight. Matteo Giacobbe returns in goal, 19 year old Jack Lynch gets his first start of the season, Joe Creighton returns from suspension to start in midfield. Oscar Betts returns to the squad with Lawrie Toombs. Most significant is the return to the squad for the first time this season of Tom Jansons after a knee injury. We will aim to put our recent performances behind us and provide Binfield a competitive fixture. We will be the underdog tonight for good reason but hope to show some quality that we undoubtedly have.
