Up for the Cup...
As the new football season gets underway so to do the Berks & Bucks FA County Cup competitions.
Last season we introduced four new county competitions; the Disability, Futsal, Veterans and Walking Football County Cups and we haven't stopped there!
This season we are delighted to offer even more opportunities to participate with the introduction of another four new competitions:
Girls U12 Cup
Girls U13 Cup
Girls U15 Cup
Youth U18 Midweek Floodlit Cup
With two thriving Girls' Football Leagues showing the continued expansion and development of Girls' football in our region, we have taken the opportunity to expand the existing Girls' Competitions; bringing them inline with the existing Youth Cup format where there is provision at every competitive age group.
The U18 Midweek Floodlit Cup, to be run initially as a pilot competition for the 2019/20 season, will provide opportunities for U18 teams that play in midweek leagues across the region to play in a competitive competition that is representative of the football they play.
In yet another exciting addition, we're delighted to confirm that Wycombe Wanderers FC have re-entered the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup after a five year absence.
The Chairboys' return ensures that all three of the EFL clubs in our region are involved in the competition for the first time in many years; much to the delight of football fans across Berks & Bucks.
With the prospect of some enticing ties on the horizon for teams making it through to the latter stages, we look forward to welcoming Wycombe, Reading and MK Dons to the draw at the Quarter Final stage of the competition where they will also be joined by current holders; Slough Town FC.
First Round Draws
With the Preliminary Round Draw of the Senior Cup competition kicking-off the County Cup season yesterday, we’re looking forward to releasing the first round draws for our other competitions, adult and youth, over the coming weeks. We don’t have exact dates for all the draws yet, but we’re working hard to get them to you as soon as we can.
