We are expecting a terrific occasion at Windsor’s Stag Meadow on Tuesday night as East Berkshire neighbours Binfield and Bracknell Town meet for the fifth time this season to play for the Berks & Bucks County FA Senior Trophy.

Bracknell will have to lift themselves from a heartbreaking final day defeat to Highworth Town that saw them finish runners up to Thame United in the Hellenic Premier Division, while Binfield have had a few days extra rest after completing their league campaign almost a week ago with a win at Oxford City Nomads.

What do we know about the teams likely to turnout on the evening though?

Binfield

The Moles have a number of players cup tied including midfielder Harrison Bayley who turned out for Highmoor-IBIS, Gary Smith, Ben Cook and goalkeeper Mo Nyamunga.

That might mean a call up for Reserve team stopper Liam Vaughan – in impressive form recently following a double penalty save against Maidenhead United Reserves.

Manager Roger Herridge revealed on the County FA site that Sean Moore, Michael Walton and striker Luke Hayden will all face late fitness tests while Jack Broome who is touch and go due to work commitments.

The Robins have at least one definite absentee in captain Carl Davies following his third sending off of the season at Ardley United while Jamie McClurg was also sent off in that game and is expected to miss out.
