Football in Bracknell

Weekend: All the matches including Wokingham & Emmbrook vs Woodley United

After a quiet midweek for our East Berkshire sides, the weekend brings matches aplenty with both Ascot United and Bracknell Town handed tough away fixtures.

The pick of the matches locally sees Wokingham & Emmbrook host Woodley United and FootballinBracknell will be in attendance for that one.

Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division

A fine win against Hollands & Blair in the Buildbase FA Vase aside, its been a rough few weeks for Ascot United and they face a daunting task tomorrow away at league leaders Thatcham Town.

The sides have already faced off at the Racecourse Ground with the visitors winning 3-0 thanks to two James Tennant goals and one from Jemel Johnson.

It’s certainly a tough ask for the Yellamen but one they will relish.

Fifth placed Bracknell Town travel to sixth placed Tuffley Rovers in what should be an even contest.

Manage Mark Tallentire does have goalkeeper Chris Grace and captain Carl Davies missing from suspension but should be able to call upon Adam Cornell who starred in the same fixture last year scoring four as the Robins romped to a 6-1 victory.

Rovers have greatly improved having been reprieved and tomorrow is a tough one to call.

Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One East

Wokingham & Emmbrook host Woodley United at Lowther Road with United clear favourites being the only team with a 100% record in the division. Seven wins from seven matches sees them in third place but with games in hand.

We also look forward to United’s latest player forfeit video – which we may or may not be able to stream live via our facebook page.

For the Sumas, it’s a chance for a first win since 3rd September and they could move up to eighth with a win.

AFC Aldermaston host Chinnor and will start as favourites, a testament to their positive start since joining the league.

Rayners Lane welcome Finchampstead tomorrow with one place separating the teams and Finch could climb above Lane with a win which would be their first league win in a month.
