In the Combined Counties Division One Sandhurst Town host Ash United at Bottom Meadow. The Fizzers are one place below Ash in the table and a win would see them leapfrog their opponents as they look to achieve a top 6 finish.

When the two sides met earlier in the season Sandhurst came out on top, winning 3-2 at Ash’s Youngs Drive ground. A win for Sandhurst this weekend would see them move into 7th place in the table, 3 points off the top 6.

Eversley & California will look to ease their relegation fears when they entertain Dorking Wanderers Reserves at the ESA Ground. The Boars sit in 16th place, 2 places and 3 points above the foot of the table and potential relegation.

Dorking are sat comfortably in mid table but are currently bottom of the form table having picked up 1 point in their last 6 games, however their last win came when they faced Eversley in the reverse fixture in January.

On Saturday Holyport play their first league match in three weeks when they travel to Abingdon Town. Port have slipped into the bottom half of the table but do have games in hand over the sides above them.

Their promotion hopes are all but gone but they do have a kind run in so a strong finish to the season could still be possible. Abingdon are struggling on the pitch at the moment; they have not won in any competition since October and they have conceded 16 goals in their last 2 matches.

The two sides will meet again the following weekend when they play the reverse league fixture at Summerleaze Village.

AFC Aldermaston are in action in the Reading Senior Cup as they travel to face Woodcote Stoke Row. The Atomics are in fine form, winning their last 7 games in all competitions and scoring 30 goals while conceding just 2 in that run.

Woodcote sit 2nd in the Thames Valley Premier League and are in good form themselves, having not lost since October. The winner will progress to the semi final where they will face either Wallingford Town or Wokingham & Emmbrook.

Update: Woodcote Stoke Row vs AFC Aldermaston has been postponed

Woodley United are also in cup action as they travel to Buckinghamshire to take on Hellenic Division Two East side Stokenchurch in the quarter final of the Supplementary Cup.

The Kestrels will be looking to end a run of 3 defeats that has seen the remain towards the bottom end of the table, although they are safe from relegation this season.

Stokenchurch sit in 6th position in the 15-team league and are on a run of 5 wins including defeating Hellenic Division One West side Malmesbury Victoria in the previous round of this competition.

In another of the Supplementary Cup quarter finals, Wallingford Town travel to face Hellenic Premier Division side Flackwell Heath. Flackwell have lost their last three league games but are still going strong in the Floodlit Cup as well as the Supplementary, where they are one of 2 Step 5 sides left in the competition.

Wallingford will not be intimidated by Step 5 opposition as they defeated Shrivenham 5-0 in a previous round to make it to this stage.
