Ascot United are flying a loan flag in the 2022/23 FA Vase after beating Buckland Athletic on Saturday in the Fourth Round.

The Yellas saw goals from Sean McCormack, Brendan Matthew and Jordan Ajanlekoko send them through with the home side grabbing a late consolation.

The Fifth Round draw has taken a little while to complete thanks to the Great British weather, and at the time of writing, there is still one tie to play when Tring Athletic host Walsall Wood, but Ascot aside the tie of the next round is surely one of the favourites Jersey Bulls away at holders Newport Pagnell Town.

One other Combined Counties League side remains in the shape of Harefield United who will host Peacehaven & Telscombe.

The journey so far for Ascot United

The Yellas have a history in the FA Vase – and could crown a final season in the competition (if league form continues) with a trip to Wembley as their neighbours Binfield did.

Ascot are two time Quarter Finalists, taking Shildon to a replay in 2012/13 before losing 4-1 at the Racecourse, and travelling to AFC St Austell in 2014/15 where they suffered a 3-2 defeat.

This season the Yellas have been imperious in the competition as this list compiled by ascotunited.net shows:

First Round Qualifying: Long Crendon 1-5 Ascot United

First Round Proper:
