Berkshire will have three representatives in Monday’s Emirates FA Cup First Qualifying Round draw after Bracknell Town won and Ascot United and Reading City both took their opponents to replays.

The Robins won by a solitary goal at Bashley, Dave Tarpey scoring the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win for Bracknell Town while Harry Laflin scored for Ascot United in their 1-1 draw at Risborough Rangers.

Reading City will also have to do it all again, a 0-0 draw at Broadfields United means the Greater London side will travel back to The Rivermoor on Tuesday night.

There was disappointment for the county’s two other representatives, Binfield lost 2-1 on the road at Harefield United after Josh Helmore had equalised Hekmat Alizai’s opener and Thatcham Town were beaten 2-0 at Southern League Thame United.

The draw for the First Qualifying Round of the FA Cup is expected to be released at 1pm on Monday 23rd.
