WEEKEND PREVIEW AS WEMBLEY COME TO ASCOT / ONLINE PROGRAMME

#WeAreAscot

Ascot United return to league action on Saturday as they welcome Wembley for a Combined Counties Premier Division North fixture (3.00pm). The online programme is now here and included Simon and Jamie’s views, plus Dan’s quiz, my ramblings and a bunch of other stuff across 30 pages. Remember it is a cashless site at The Racecourse.

The visitors have played seven league games – winning four and losing three – but it is their superb recent form which makes them a tough prospect as they come into the game with five consecutive victories, scoring eighteen goals in the process.

Wembley have been at Step five since 2005-06 when they entered the Combined Counties League (although prior to that they were in the arguably-equivalent Isthmian League Division 2 before the pyramids were shaken up). After another reshuffle, they transferred to the Spartan South Midlands League in 2014-15 where they stayed until this season, when they rejoined the Combined Counties League.

And, few people will need reminding that just over a decade ago on 11th August 2011 the two sides met at The Racecourse in a Facebook-streamed FA Cup tie – attracting 1,149 spectators – which remains a club record.

Saturday’s league programme is below, with Virginia Water hosting Holyport on Friday and Abbey Rangers playing Marlow in the FA Cup on Saturday.

On Sunday, the Ladies travel to Oxford City in the SRWFL (2.00pm) and remember that next Tuesday evening Ascot host Windsor in the Berks and Bucks Cup.
