Berks & Bucks Senior Cup 2023-24



  • Lowly Milton Keynes Dons should be in the qualifying rounds surely.

    Do you reckon these fixtures were done by the office looking at a map or do you think they were actually picked out of a hat?

    I only ask as there are some games where the opposition are very close to each other. Like Burham vs Windsor, Abingdon vs Milton, Newport Pagnell vs MK Irish, Amersham vs Chalfort. Almost like it wasn't fixed......

    Pretty much all of the fixtures are within the same area of the counties

  • I was thinking exactly the same thing. Looks fixed to me so that teams don't have to travel. Bit of a shame really if so

  • Yeah, no way that's a random draw

  • It does look suspicious, last year's draw was similar if not quite so obvious. Maybe the lower ranked clubs requested local derbies. Sorry to see that distant Shrivenham, almost in Wiltshire, are not involved this year.

  • The first games were played tonight.

    Newport Pagnell Town 1-3 MK Irish

    Wallingford & Crowmarsh 2-2 Wantage Town (Wantage win 3-1 on penalties)

    Next games scheduled for 26/27 September.

  • Games this week if you fancy some B & B action, all 7:45 kick-offs.

    Tuesday 26th:

    Winslow United v Long Crendon

    Chalfont St Peter v Amersham Town

    Penn & Tylers Green v Risborough Rangers

    Langley v Holyport

    Abingdon United v Milton United 

    Woodley United v AFC Aldermaston 

    Wednesday 27th:

    Burnham v Windsor

    The remaining fixture is on Tuesday 3rd October:

    Sandhurst Town v Wokingham & Emmbrook

  • Tonight's results.

    Winslow United 2-1 Long Crendon

    Chalfont St Peter 1-2 Amersham Town

    Penn & Tylers Green 0-5 Risborough Rangers

    Langley 2-4 Holyport

    Abingdon United 0-1 Milton United 

    Woodley United 1-2 AFC Aldermaston 

  • I was at Winslow who took the lead on 15' (goal below). Crendon equalised on 27' and a half-time score of 1-1 reflected an even game. After the break Winslow domininated, scoring the winner on 68' but had numerous good chances to stretch the lead, including hitting the woodwork twice. An entertaining game, competitive, clean and well refereed. About 50 watching.

  • Bit of a 'cupset' at Chalfont. Amersham are going great guns in the CCL D1 and had 40-year-old Richard Pacquette on the bench.

  • Great goal - but I wonder why the players didn't appear overly enthusiastic in their celebrations?

  • Yes, I wondered that. I failed miserably to capture the winning goal, which was celebrated properly.

  • Alfie Pendlebury scored two of Holyport's goals, and he is the younger brother of Ollie. Alfie already has seven for the season.

  • Tonight's result.

    Burnham 3-2 Windsor

  • Second Qualifying Round Draw.

    Milton Keynes Irish v Aylesbury Vale Dynamos

    Winslow United v Buckingham

    Amersham Town v Risborough Rangers

    Flackwell Heath v Holmer Green

    Holyport v Burnham

    Wantage Town v Milton United

    Reading City v Sandhurst Town or Wokingham & Emmbrook

    Berks County v AFC Aldermaston

  • Last night's result.

    Flackwell Heath 3-1 Holmer Green

    HT 1-0 to Holmer Green, attendance 136.

  • The draw has been made for the Third Round, even though seven Second Round ties have not been played yet.

    Holyport or Burnham v MK Irish or Aylesbury Vale Dynamos

    Marlow v Berks County or AFC Aldermaston

    Winslow United or Buckingham v Amersham Town or Risborough Rangers

    Beaconsfield Town v Bracknell Town

    Aylesbury United v Wantage Town or Milton United

    Didcot Town v Maidenhead United

    Thatcham Town v Reading City or Sandhurst Town

    Hungerford Town v Binfield

    Flackwell Heath v Slough Town

    Ascot United v Chesham United

  • Didn’t Pacquette go to school at John Hampden? Or was that Perpetuini?

  • I quite fancy Flackwell v Slough. A good crowd I would expect.

  • I'm surprised that Maidenhead United are in the competition so early. I thought they came into the competition later?

  • Wycombe, MK and Reading join at the next round, only EFL sides are exempted until then.

  • edited October 2023

    Not long til MK have to join in at the 3rd round stage then hopefully

  • 2nd Round results tonight.

    MK Irish 2-1 Aylesbury Vale Dynamos

    Holyport 1-3 Burnham

  • Chesham United are ‘victims’ of success on all fronts and as a result have decided to withdraw from this year’s B&B, handing Ascot United a bye.

  • Second Round results tonight.

    Winslow United 0-3 Buckingham (HT 0-2)

    Amersham Town 2-3 Risborough Rangers (HT 1-2)

    Wantage Town 1-8 Milton United (HT 0-1)

    Berks County 10-0 AFC Aldermaston (HT 4-0)

  • tough on Aldermaston having to play the whole of the rest of the county.

  • Luke Hayden scored six goals for Berks County, match played at the Racecourse Ground, Ascot.

  • The Winslow v Buckingham match was abandoned due to a floodlight failure with 13 minutes remaining.  I misread Winslow's final tweet of 3-0 to Buckingham, as the final score. The clubs await the B & B decision.

    The previous Tuesday, Winslow's league game at home to Sileby Rangers was also abandoned due to a "power outage", with Winslow leading 3-2.

  • Tonight's results.

    Second Round

    Reading City 3-0 Sandhurst Town

    Reading went 3-0 up after 15 minutes and are away to Thatcham Town in the Third Round.

    Third Round

    Didcot Town 2-5 Maidenhead United

    Maidenhead came from behind to take a 3-1 half-time lead, thanks to an eight minute hat-trick by Christian Johnson.

    The abandoned Winslow United v Buckingham game last week will be replayed next Tuesday.
