FC Deportivo Galicia vs Eversley & California

Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League Division One

Boars manager Matthew Angell: “Unfortunately injuries have hit us again with Josh Francis now added to the walking wounded. We have also seen the following players decide that there futures lie elsewhere with Connor Harlowe and Cam Blackie leaving the club and I really wish them both well in the future.

“We do welcome Matt Deadfield to tomorrow’s squad and Kaine Macaulay who scored in last weekends development team game. Really looking forward to game and confident the group of players available can get something from the game if they apply themselves correctly.”

Long Crendon vs Chalvey Sports

Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One East

Stabmonks manager Matty Young: “After two good victories we are a little more up beat. Some enforced changes this weekend will see our regular goalkeeper return to action, new signing Connor Shingleston will feature and three return from suspension.

“We will take a strong squad but will miss a couple of key players through injury and work commitments. Travelling to Long Crendon will undoubtedly be a very tough fixture as they have started strongly. This league is proving there are tough games at every turn – this will be no different. We are looking forward to being involved and giving our all.”

Can the Sumas be the first side to inflict a defeat on leaders Risborough? Manager Dan Bateman has confirmed the side will have to do without Liam and Callum Eagle who are away. But said “Other then that full squad to choose from.”

In Jake White he has the divisions second highest scorer on 10, so don’t write it off!

Sandhurst Town P-P Fleet Spurs

Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League Division One

Held by Bagshot last week, the Fizzers will look to get back to winning ways and impose themselves on the top four again. Manager Michael Herbert said: “Jake Nicholls is back following a wedding last week and Grant Kemp is in the squad following injury three weeks ago. Captain Mitch Cooper and Paddy Gardner face late fitness tests.” 

Staines Town vs Bracknell Town

BetVictor Isthmian League South Central Division One

The Robins mark the first Isthmian League fixture of the Mark Tallentire and Aaron Steadman era with a trip to a club in a very different position from the last time the two sides met.

The Swans were upwardly mobile in 2003/04 when the two sides were last in the Isthmian League Division One together and went on to reach the Conference South (now National League) but since 2015 have found themselves dropping down the divisions.

Tallentire confirmed the squad is unchanged from the Westfield Velocity Trophy fixture nearly two weeks ago.

Windsor vs Eastbourne Town

Buildbase FA Vase Second Round

Royalists boss Mark Cooper has to rouse his side after a heavy midweek defeat to Binfield. He said: “We have a squad of 20 available for Saturday with no fresh injury concerns. However Excellence Mahumba and Nojus Trinovas the goalkeeper aren’t available due to being required by their parent club and being cup tied respectively.”
