Marlow receive home draw in BTC Cup

3 months ago By bernard carvell

Marlow have drawn promoted Burghfield at home in the round of 16 of the BTC Cup as reward for their victory over Hurst FC

Hosts Marlow won handily over Burghfield in an early pre season game, but will need to be on their guard to avoid any upset.
Theirs is one of three or possibly four all Premiership ties, the fourth being dependant on the outcome of the final first round match, the intriguing pairing of Newbury v Woodcote.
Newbury, coming of a brilliant win over Abingdon Town in the B&B Trophy are in theory the underdogs but are they really?
The winner of that game will be at home to Woodley Royals who are experiencing a torrid start to the season.
Possibly tie of the round see’s current league leader Mortimer travelling to doughty cup fighters Westwood in what promises to be a tremendous scrap.
Apart from United v Burghfield the other all premier tie pairs unpredictable Reading City U23 at home to struggling Berks County.
Having defeated County in the league already City will start as slight favourites but their form has been inconsistent of late.
What of the giant killers from the first round.
FC Imaan Lions reward for overcoming Wraysbury is a home draw against old foes Eldon Celtic having already beaten them in the league this season so a home win is on the cards.
Rotherfield on the other hand, conquerors of Cookham Dean, are drawn away to Wokingham & Emmbrook Reserves who themselves have endured mixed fortunes thus far.
Guess it will depend on which Wokingham team turns up on the day.
Richings Park who surprised everyone with a superb win over holders YMCA are at home to improving Maidenhead Town.
They will have to be at their best but must be favourites to progress in this one.
Finally Wrightchoice& Unity travel to Finchampstead in another pick em tie.
Wrightchoice smashed Wokingham & Emmbrook first’s in the B&B cup and surely a repeat performance will see them progress but Finchamstead, who have notched eighteen goals thus far will be no pushovers.
Forecast for last eight
Marlow United
Reading City
FC Imaam Loins
Richings Park
WrightChoice & Unity
