Third time lucky? As Ascot United will head South West to Buckland Athletic on Saturday 28th of January in the Fourth Round Proper of the Isuzu FA Vase with a 3pm kick off.

Saturday’s hosts currently sit fifth in the Premier Division of the Toolstation Western Football League having played twenty two league games (W12 D2 L8). A match fact worth knowing, as pointed out by Austell fan, Tony Pearce, on Twitter, is Buckland Athletic manager Daniel Hart was part of the AFC St Austell team that knocked the Yellas out in the Quarterfinal of the competition in the 2014/15 season.
