Binfield drawn away in FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round

After a hard-working 2-1 win over Thame United on Saturday in the FA Trophy, the Moles have been drawn away in the Third Qualifying Round.

Binfield will travel to Step 3 Hendon of the Southern League Premier Division South on Saturday 8th October 2022 with the winners due £2,450, a game that will reunite our number one, Chris Grace, with his former club.

So another away day following on from the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round draw that pitches the Moles against Beckenham Town.

Meanwhile, the Moles will host Marlow on Tuesday night in the Isthmian League Cup, the Velocity Trophy. Ticket details here.

“We will work our butts off” – Binfield captain Sean Moore

Binfield captain Sean Moore has been speaking to Football in Berkshire’s Dave Wright ahead of Saturday’s big FA Trophy Second Round tie with Truro City at Hill Farm Lane.

Moore, who captained the Moles to Wembley last season, said he believed his sides desire over 90 minutes of a cup tie has been invaluable: “Some of the teams we have played perhaps haven’t shown as much desire over 90 minutes as we did. You can be sure we will work our butts off from the first to the last minute in every game. This is a credit to Doddsy (Jamie McClurg) and Withs (Carl Withers) for the training sessions and demanding the intensity they expect from us in all games.”

The Binfield captain covered other subjects in the interview including his new role on the pitch alongside Callum Bunting, as well as the surge in support from the club juniors.

He said: “Our good run in the Vase has certainly helped us out this season. A lot of the club’s junior players are now watching us and their parents are coming along with them. That’s good to see as we are a family club and it is nice to have seen them enjoying their day with us. That is one of the enjoyments of playing at home.”

The full interview is available on the Football in Berkshire website here.

Binfield draw Truro City at home in FA Trophy

The draw for the Second Round of the 2021/22 Buildbase FA Trophy has pitched Binfield at home to Truro City on Saturday 27th November.

The Moles beat Cinderford Town 3-0 on Saturday while Cornish side Truro beat Bognor Regis Town 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.

Truro are currently 11th at step 3 in the Southern League Premier Division South while Binfield are fourth at step 4 in the Isthmian League South Central Division.

After a year without a single home tie in national FA competitions, Binfield now have a second in a row after the Cinderford game.

Tickets for the fixture are now on sale on our ticket portal with our charity partner for this fixture selected as CRY UK (Cardiac Risk In The Young).

The scheduling means the home tie with Tooting & Mitcham United will be rearranged but there remain four home fixtures in November starting with Hanwell Town on Tuesday night.

Tickets for all these games are in our ticket store here.

FA Trophy draw finally gives Binfield a home tie

Following on from Saturday’s FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round win at Herne Bay in Kent, Binfield have been handed a home tie in the First Round.

Yes, a home tie!

The Moles famously played out the entire 2020/21 FA Vase campaign without playing a home fixture and that run continued this season in the FA Cup and FA Trophy.

Now though, the First Round draw has been published and will see Binfield welcome Southern League Cinderford Town to Hill Farm Lane on Saturday 13th November.

Tickets for the fixture are on sale now on the Moles ticket store as well as tickets for all the November matches (please be aware that we’re waiting on a new date for the Thatcham Town game so that will move).

Isthmian League Velocity Trophy

As well as the Trophy, Binfield have been given a bye in the First Round of the Isthmian League Cup, the Velocity Trophy.
