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.

Cribbs best run also saw them reach the First Round Qualifying in the 2020/21 season in which they lost 3-1 to Chichester City.

Friday’s game will see the pair meet for the first time in any competition. Tickets are available to purchase from our club shop here.
