Ascot in the FA Cup
Ascot look to extend their successes in the FA Cup having previous reached the First Round Qualifying on two occasions. First, during the 2016/17 season in a replay against Tonbridge Angels in which the Yellamen lost 0-7 and during last season when they faced Hythe Town losing 0-1.
Cribbs in the FA Cup
Cribbs are based in Cribbs Causeway in South Gloucestershire just north of Bristol, and have enjoyed a similar rise up the Pyramid to Ascot having been promoted from the Gloucester County League at a similar time Ascot were promoted from the Reading Senior League. They eventually took their place in Step 5 for the 2015/16 season. Last season they were fourth in the Hellenic League Premier Division, a league well known to the Yellamen, after being transferred from the Western League Premier Division at the start of the campaign.
