We would like to inform supporters that we have taken the decision to withdraw from the 2023/24 Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup.
The decision to do so was not taken lightly, but as supporters will know we have already played 4 league games less than Basingstoke Town and 2 games less than league leaders Gosport Borough, and will fall further behind over the next two Saturdays while we continue in the FA Trophy & Cup. With these fixture rearrangements; within the league required window; already piling up from our success in the FA Cup & Trophy so far, and as well as our continued involvement in both those competitions at this stage, the club has decided to withdraw from the County competition in order to ensure our squad is best prepared to undertake the busy calendar ahead.
As a result of our withdrawal, the Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup tie with Ascot United will now be awarded as a home walkover.
We thank the Berks & Bucks FA for their understanding of our position, and would like to reiterate that we remain committed to the competition going forward and we wish Ascot all the best for the remainder of the competition.
