Having been left without a fixture last weekend, Bracknell Town return to Bostik League action when they take on Bedfont Sports at Larges Lane this Saturday (3pm ko) – and it could be their only home appearance in October.

A week later, on October 13, the Robins are away to Haywards Heath or Ashford United in the preliminary round of the FA Trophy, the sides having replayed in Sussex last night (Tuesday) following their 4-4 draw on Saturday.

Town continue this month’s league fixtures at Uxbridge on October 20 and Cheshunt a week later.

South Central Division pacemakers Bracknell should be capable of maintaining their 100-per-cent record against Bedfont, who are lying 15th in the table with six points following away wins at Tooting & Mitcham and Chipstead.

Striker Adam Cornell faces a late fitness check, having received a nasty eye injury during their 5-0 win at Ashford Town a week ago last Saturday.

Dan Read was brought into the side when they visited Thame United for a friendly last Thursday, scoring twice in a 5-2 win. There were also two goals for Joe Grant and one for Liam Ferdinand.

Robins will know who they are to visit in the second round of the Velocity Trophy next Tuesday (October 9) when Egham Town and Whyteleafe play their opening round tie.

  • BRACKNELL have teamed up with EPC (Elite Preparation Centre) to launch a new league for primary schools, starting in January.

It will offer matches for school Years 3 and 4, with teams able to include boys and girls, and a girls section for Years 5 and 6.

There will be two divisions of eight teams in each with promotion and relegation between the two, along with cup competitions.

Each game will kick-off at 4pm and consist of two halves of 20 minutes.

The EPC Robins League, which is to kick-off with an all-day tournament, will be free to enter and every player who takes part will receive a Bracknell Town season ticket which is valid for one child and one adult.

Club chairman Kayne Steinborn-Busse commented: “Both EPC and Bracknell Town are fully committed to providing children with further sporting opportunities and we are excited at the prospect of watching local talent representing their schools in a fun and competitive environment.”
