A quick look at Binfield and Ascot United’s FA Vase opponents

Binfield have drawn AFC Uckfield United at home in the Third Round of the Buildbase FA Vase while Ascot United will travel to Corinthian if they get past Abbey Rangers on Tuesday night.

Here’s a brief look at both sides ahead of the ties due to be played on the weekend of Saturday 30th November.

AFC Uckfield Town

Formed in 2014 as a merger of AFC Uckfield and Uckfield Town, the Sussex side play in the Southern Combination Football League Premier Division where they’ve competed since the summer of 2015.

Uckfield play in the same division as Windsor’s Second Round conquerors Eastbourne Town and coincidentally were beaten themselves by the Royalists in last seasons competition.

They are currently 11th in their division having won five, drawn one and lost four of their 10 league games this season.

Saturday marked the clubs first Vase tie this season where they beat Walthamstow away 3-2 having been given a bye to the Second Round after last seasons exertions.


Ascot or Abbey Rangers opponents Corinthian play in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division where they sit third after 15 games this season.

The Kent side beat Canterbury City 2-0 in the Second Round on Saturday having been given a bye to the First Round after making it to the Second Round last season.

The Hoops play at Gay Dawn Farm in Hartley, part of the district of Sevenoaks in Kent.
