For lovers of the beautiful game, there are fewer greater moments in life than following your team on the road to Wembley in the FA CUP.

From the first kick in the Extra-Preliminary rounds right through to the final whistle of the Emirates Cup Final itself, fans tune in or travel from all corners of the country to support their team on what they hope will be an incredible and successful journey.

On Friday 6th August at 19:45, Ascot United and Holyport FC begin their own journey at the Racecourse Ground in this years competition in a match that is certain to have all the passion of a local derby and cup game rolled into one.

1st Team Managers, Jamie Tompkins and Derek Sweetman will be hoping the hard work and preparation they and their teams are putting in during the pre-season will pay off and result in progression to the next round.

The winners will face a trip to Risborough Rangers or Lydney Town in the Preliminary Round.

Our Ascot Sports Bar will be open serving hot food and drinks.
