With the announcement that spectators are now allowed to watch Non-League football from Step 3 downwards there’s a chance to watch some live F.A. Cup action on Tuesday 1st September. The F.A. Cup kicks off on this date with the Extra Preliminary Round. The winners at this stage receive £1,125 & the losers £375.
There are 184 ties scheduled at this stage with more clubs joining in the Preliminary Round on September 12th. Here are some local games you may be interested in taking in. However, do check with the clubs before setting off as some of these will be “ticket only”:
Oxhey Jets v Bishops Cleeve
Clanfield 85 v Long Crendon
Holmer Green v Shrivenham
Roman Glass St George v Flackwell Heath
Risborough Rangers v Longlevens
Leighton Town v Abingdon United
Burnham v Cheltenham Saracens
Dunstable Town v Thame Rangers
The 3 most local games are at Burnham, Holmer Green and Risborough Rangers. Flackwell Heath have to travel to Roman Glass St George who are in fact the oldest club in Bristol (founded in 1872). They play in the Western League Premier Division. Remember, no replays and I’m sure you’ll be doing grass roots football a huge favour by handing over a fiver or whatever to support the greatest cup competition in the world!
