It’s Eton Manor or Southill Alexander for Berko!

After a short delay due to an appeal by Grays Athletic, the FA released the draws for this season’s FA Vase on Thursday, and the Comrades were rewarded with a bye and two home draws.

The First Qualifying Round on the 4th September saw Berko receive a bye to a Second Qualifying Round home tie with the winners of Eton Manor (Essex Senior League) versus Southill Alexander (Beds Premier League Premier Division) on Saturday 18th September.

And should the Comrades proceed, another date at Broadwater awaits Micky’s boys in the shape of a First Round Proper tie with one of FC Clacton (Eastern Counties League Premier Division), Buckingham Town (United Counties Premier Division) or Saffron Walden Town (Eastern Counties League First Division) on Saturday 2nd October.

The Club is looking for new sponsors for the FA Vase campaign, for the matches themselves, Programmes and Matchballs, so we would appeal to the local business community and our loyal supporters to get in touch and help ensure that the Comrades’ first foray into a national FA competition is one to remember!
