I've got to ask Karen, why is this taking precedence over the league fixture between Jets and Risborough? Can only think it was because Jets could have theoretically made FAQ2Q, but that was always going to be a stretch. AFAIK the decision to postpone the Jets v RR league game scheduled for this Saturday was only made after Jets had drawn with Kingstonian.

Very poor that the club has failed to notify the SSML of a change of date

I saw that Risborough tweeted, ‘no game this weekend’?

Daily Dose - Yes, it all seems a bit of a dogs breakfast doesn't it. Also Long Crendon v AFC Aldermaston is showing as Tuesday 5 October on the Berks & Bucks FA website:

Yes it appears that having sent out the round dates to all the Leagues concerned the Berks & Bucks FA having received no objections made the draw.

Now other Leagues (the SSML was not among these) are moaning that they don't want their clubs playing County Cup games on Saturdays and have pestered the County to back down.

With all these late changes taking place this week it has led to many of the SSML sides kicking their heels on Saturday.

The blame lays entirely at the County, they should have either made the competition midweek from the start (not from the Third Round when their big clubs enter) or grown a pair of balls and told the other Leagues that they had the chance to voice their opinions and with none doing so the County should have stood form on their dates.

 

I will add that the Berks & Bucks are not the only County relaxing their rules this season, I know of one other that has told clubs that they must arrange between themselves to set a Saturday date to play their County Cup tie instead of in the past the County stating which Saturday the games will be played on.

Step 7 Jim was at this tie this evening, disappointing exit from the competition for Winslow United:

Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup First Qualifying Round
Tuesday 21 September 
 
Langley 3 Winslow United 3 (Langley win 8-7 on pens)

I nearly went to this game, but ended up watching Langley v Winslow Utd, which was a belter. A game of two halves; with Langley going 2-0 up in the first half. Winslow came out after the break, almost a different side, and went 3-2 up until the last 5 minutes when Langley equalised. Langley won the penalty shootout 8-7, with both keepers making a couple of saves from the spot. The referee was pretty good, and allowed the game to flow as much as possible.

Winslow dismal run in the county cup continues. I believe Langley hadn’t won a game yet this season.

A 5-3 win on penalties last night for Long Crendon after a hard fought 0-0 stalemate at Tythrop Way sees them entertain Langley in the Second Qualifying Round of the competition.

Good luck to Milton Keynes Irish in their Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup Second Qualifying Round tie at Combined Counties League Division One side Woodley United tomorrow afternoon although Leverstock Green must be feeling hard done by to be left without a fixture due to County Cup ties taking precedence over SSML matches: 

Saturday 9 October (kick off 3.00pm)

Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup Second Qualifying Round
Woodley United v Milton Keynes Irish

A close call for Terry Shrieves men at Step 6 side Woodley United however that only tells half, sorry, a quarter of the story, one of the Officials arrived very late having gone to the wrong ground and another failed to show up at all, was PetetheGreek assigned to this game out of interest:

Saturday 9 October 

Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup Second Qualifying Round
Woodley United 1 Milton Keynes Irish 1 (Milton Keynes Irish win 6-5 on pens)

Do you live in some strange universe

County Cup ties are officiated by County officials so unless he has moved to Buckinghamshire the chance of him being appointed is as rare as you attending a SSML game

Amersham Town unfortunately fell at the first fence in their Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup First Qualifying Round tie at Abingdon United on Tuesday evening, losing 3-1 despite taking an early lead, seeing the hosts miss a spot kick at 1-1 and playing against ten men whilst still at 1-1. Abingdon United now entertain Holmer Green in the Second Qualifying Round, date to be confirmed.

It's a Berks & Bucks game.

My parent CFA is London and I am an associate member with Middlesex.

So officially, nothing to do with me. 😝
