New County Cups Introduced

Four new Berks & Bucks FA County Cup Competitions introduced from 2018/19 season.

This season we introduced four new County Cup Competitions; recognising the growing popularity of different formats of the game across our regions. 

The new competitions have provided additional opportunities for participants involved in Disability Football, Futsal, Veterans and Walking Football, to compete against other teams and experience tournament football, some for the first time, whilst also offering the chance for clubs to win some silverware and a place in the history books as inaugural winners the competitions.

Disability County Cup

The first of these Competitions was the Adult Disability County Cup whihc ran in February at Tilsley Park in Abingdon. As an invitation Cup, this competition was open to Adult teams from the Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Inclusion (BOBi) League.
