Faringdon Town made the nine-mile journey to Alfredian Park on Tuesday evening for their latest uhlsport Hellenic League Division Two West fixture. With both sides in the higher reaches of the table, it was always going to be a tight affair and so it turned out to be.
Town welcomed Clanfield (85) FC who had travelled the 4 miles up the Radcot Road to Tucker Park, to see who would go through to the third round of the Challenge Cup.
The Vets were finally back in action after a three week lay off and began their quest to reach the final of the uhlsport Hellenic League Veterans Challenge Cup after being knocked out at the semi-final stage the two previous seasons. Three group fixtures begin the campaign before the knockout stages commence at the quarter-finals.
Town were back in uhlsport Hellenic Division Two West action on Saturday, with near neighbours Clanfield (85) Development the visitors to Tucker Park. Town sat 4th prior to kick-off, looking to build on their last two league and cup wins, whilst the visitors had claimed a single point from three league fixtures.
Great news, we’ve been able to secure Faringdon Leisure Centre, so we’ll be able to continue our football sessions for girls aged 4-11yrs through the winter without worrying about the weather.
Town made the same journey as last weekend to Beversbrook Sports, against the same opposition but in the 1st Round of the Supplementary Cup this week.
