County Cup Medals 2022

Men's Sunday Cup Final - Match Preview

Looking ahead to this season's Men's Sunday Cup Final

Our BBFA Sunday Cup Final sees two of the most inform teams in the County meet at Stag Meadow, Windsor & Eton FC on Wednesday 17th April (Kick off 7.45pm) in what should be a cracker!

High Wycombe Sunday Combination table toppers Great Brittan United face Reading Sunday League highflyers FC Bapco to see who will come out on top and claim the 2023-24 County Sunday Cup. 

Here is your guide to the two teams involved... 

Great Brittan United 

In their first season as an affiliated club, Great Brittan United have taken the High Wycombe Sunday combination by storm and sit on top of Division 1 with an impressive 18 wins from 19 matches, with their only defeat coming on the opening day of the season with a 4-1 defeat at home to Hazlemere Sports. Racking up an incredible 118 goals in their 19 matches, GBU certainly know where the goal is.  
With 54 players used this season, there has been no shortage of options for managers Craig Wright & Oliver Brittan to choose from. Here is who to keep an eye on. 

Ones to Watch

Not surprisingly, given the number of goals that they have scored this season, the strike duo of Marcus Mealing & Kieran Campbell have hit the headlines. Mealing contributing 21 goals in 17 games for the club, whilst Campbell has played more infrequently with just eight appearances but leads the scoring charts with 23 goals.

Route to the Final

1st Round v MK Wanderers Won 8-3
A comprehensive away win in Milton Keynes, saw goals from Jamie Bartlett (4), Kieran Campbell (3) and Cianan Hawes in a routine victory. 

2nd Round v Lane End Won 8-5
Goals galore in a topsy-turvy clash with fellow HWSCL team Lane End, saw GBU run out winners. Goals shared around between Brandon Blake, Toby Brittan (2), Kieran Campbell (2), Robert Gerrard, Prince Aaron Mbengui and Marcus Mealing. 

3rd Round v MK Cowboys W 4-1
Another trip back to MK and another win on the board. Louis Bowers, Campbell (2) and Mealing all on target. 

Quarter Final v Masters W 3-1
Masters ran GBU close in this one with 2 late goals sealing a United victory. 

Semi Final v Inter Versa W 7-2
After a goalless 1st half, GBU ran riot after the break notching 7 times through Campbell (3), Duarte Surpanu, McKain, Mealing & Quinlivan to seal their place in the final. 

FC Bapco 

FC Bapco have history in the Berks & Bucks FA Sunday Cup, winning the competition in 2021-22 season with a commanding victory over Paggies Bar. This season, they have an impressive record of 8 wins from 9 league matches, their defeat coming against Tilehurst El Patrons in September.

With 5 games in hand on the league leaders and just 4 points behind, FC Bapco will be looking to add to more silver wear to their collection in going for the League and County Cup double, having done well to reach the 4th round of the FA Sunday Cup. 

Ones to watch 

FC Bapco also have a hot shot amongst their ranks with Reece Bucket scoring 13 goals in his 11 appearances so far this season, closely followed by McKoy Palmer with 10 in 12 appearances.

Keep an eye out for Adam Cashin-Murray, with the veteran midfielder, popping up with seven goals and assists from Midfield. 

Route to the Final

1ST Round v Finchampstead W 5-2 
A routine victory over the Bracknell Sunday League strugglers sees FCB into round 2. 

2nd Round v AFC Dukes W/O
AFC Dukes unable to field a team so FCB progress. 

3rd Round v SF7 W 6-1
FCB hit SF7 for 6 to set up a quarter final place. 

Quarter Final v W/O
Both opponents removed from the competition from the previous round so FCB into the semi finals

Semi Final v Give Back FC D 2-2 (W 3-1 on pens)
A titanic struggle with fellow RDSL table toppers Give Back FC sees FCB come out on top on penalties after McKoy Palmer and Junaid Bell goals levelled the game at 2-2 after 90 minutes. FCB hold their nerve to win 3-1 on penalties and clinch a final place. 

There can only be one winner...

With little to choose between the two teams on paper, it will come down to the pitch.
