The Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup Quarter Final made on Thursday afternoon was missing one EFL name.

On Monday 22nd January the County FA were notified by Wycombe Wanderers, of their intention to withdraw from the Senior Cup for this season, following an extended run in the EFL Trophy.

This rather complicates the latter stages of the competition. With the Third Round tie between Winslow United & Risborough Rangers yet to be completed, those two sides will play for the right to host 2023 runners-up Marlow in Round Four, with the winners receiving a Bye to the semi-final.

The Fourth Round tie at a waterlogged Rivermoor was called off on Tuesday night. The winners of that Reading City Vs Flackwell Heath tie will face a Quarter-Final at Step 3 side Beaconsfield Town.

Meanwhile Step 5 Burnham will host Reading and the other remaining EFL outfit Milton Keynes Dons will visit the winners of the Maidenhead United vs Milton United tie due to be played on Monday 29th January

  • Maidenhead United or Milton United v Milton Keynes Dons
