One last tilt at silverware on Tuesday night for Bracknell Town and Marlow, two sides more than familiar with each other and both hurting from play-off heartbreak.

Bracknell and Marlow go head to head at Ascot United in the Final of the Berks & Bucks County FA Senior Men’s Cup Final.

For the Robins, it’s a case of picking themselves up after a season that put them in the National spotlight via the FA Cup ended in Southern League play-off Final drama that saw Truro City score an injury-time winner to earn promotion to the Vanarama National League South.

For Marlow – under ex-Robin Mark Bartley – the disappointment came a round earlier after they were beaten 2-1 by Hanworth Villa in the Isthmian League play-off Semi-Final – Walton & Hersham went on to beat Hanworth in the Final.

Bracknell were last in the final in 2004 when they were beaten 4-1 by Chesham United while Marlow’s last final was 2009 when Windsor & Eton beat them 1-0.

A win for Bracknell would be the first time the club has won the Senior Cup having lifted the Senior Trophy in 2017, but Marlow have a longer history in the top-tier County competition having won it 13 teams, most recently in 1994.
