IN THE CHAIR

Welcome to The Racecourse ground for tonight’s

County Cup game and a special welcome to Newport

Pagnall Town.

I’m sure everyone is aware of the added incentive

linked to the game tonight – the winners have a home

draw in the next round against National League

“giants” Maidenhead Utd. I’m sure the managers will

be telling the players not to think that far ahead, but

I’m equally sure the fans will have that mind…

Talking of fans, one of our biggest fans is soon to be

leaving the area to return to his native Australia. Grant

Broderick is the epitome of the perfect grassroots

volunteer – he helps with the coaching of his son’s U13

team, he is usually in attendance at first team games

(with Peroni in hand) and helps out around the club

during the week. I remember when he first got in

touch to see if there were any jobs around the club

that needed doing – utilising his experience of

working at Melbourne Golf Club. Jo and I couldn’t quite

believe our luck, and quickly came up with a never

ending to-do list – Grant has been invaluable over the

past couple of years and he will be sadly missed

around the club. Thank you for everything Grant and

make sure you keep in touch.

Just a reminder that if anyone is planning a corporate

meeting or special event, our Ascot Sports Bar is

available to hire at very reasonable rates. We have an

excellent facility available and have recently

appointed Sam Knight to be our Events Co-ordinator so

please contact her to discuss any requirements you

might have.

Hope you all enjoy the game tonight…

Simon.

A warm welcome to Newport Pagnell Town for

today's Berks and Bucks Senior Trophy

fixture.


FROM THE DUGOUT

Welcome to the players, officials

and supporters of Newport

Pagnell Town. Enjoy the game!

Jamie Tompkins

First Team Manager

Hello and welcome to Newport Pagnell Town FC players, staff and club committee and to all supporters

in attendance for this evenings Berks & Bucks County FA Cup fixture.

Recent weeks have been tough given the results lately but our performance on Saturday was very

encouraging and I felt up until 70 minutes, we more than matched our league leaders. Luck and

decisions are not going our way either, however, with hard work I’m confident we can get ourselves

back on track this evening.

A big thank you for all the support we are receiving!

Our visitors are enjoying the opposite and are on a run of winning 6 games on the bounce and keeping

clean sheets regularly so it will be another tightly contested match for both sides with the added

incentive of hosting National League side Maidenhead United in the next round.

I took the opportunity to watch our Ladies team and U18s over the last couple days and big

congratulations to our ladies’ team who fought brilliantly against a team two leagues above them in

the Women’s FA Cup First Round, the furthest the club have gone in our history. Our U18’s, away at top

of the league Westfield drew 2-2 last night. Another encouraging performance from our ‘young Yellas’

and with games in hand, it looks set for an exciting season. Well done to Darrel and Alix with the ladies

team and Josh, Chris, Matt and Jake with the U18’s.

Thank you to our sponsors, club officials and volunteers for all the fantastic work and ongoing support

towards our football club.

Enjoy the game! Jamie

ON COURSE!

With Programme Editor Neal Jeffs

Welcome to the players, officials and

supporters of Newport Pagnell Town for

this Berks and Bucks Senior Trophy match.

Happy

reading, and

enjoy the

game! Neal

Good evening and welcome to this County Cup tie for which the prize is a

home tie with National League side Maidenhead United. After a winless

streak stretching back five games to October 9th it goes without saying we

crave a home win tonight and facing The Magpies would be a night to be

savoured. But our visitors tonight are in good form in the United Counties

League Premier South – well placed in 4th (P16 W13 D1 L2) and on a six-game

winning streak during which they’ve conceded just one goal. I believe

whoever wins tonight will need to play Maidenhead on or before 30th

November which basically means a home game two weeks today! The best

thing I can do is put a link into the Berks and Bucks website, here and you

can work all the fixtures and byes out for yourselves (or at least try to…it’s

not that easy!!!).

Amazing away support! Click the

image to see and hear Clapton

Ladies' supporters celebrating

with their team last Sunday

(opens in twitter).

Away from the Men’s game some of you will have seen the Ladies’ FA Cup tie

last Sunday and they gave a really good account of themselves against a

team from two divisions higher – losing 4-0 to Chichester and Selsey in front

of a crowd of around 100. I also had a scan around the other Women’s FA Cup

fixtures and I simply had to put the clip in above – Clapton’s women’s team

took 300-400 fanatic supporters to Bedford, won on penalties, and then it

was pandemonium. Take a look at the clip via the link above and turn the

volume up! Back to us, and after tonight it’s a tough home league game

against St Panteleimon this Saturday before the unenviable tough midweek

drive to AFC Croydon in the league cup next Tuesday. Hmmm… Anyway, enjoy

the game! Neal.

CLUB HISTORY - ASCOT UNITED

Ascot United as we know it, was founded in 1965 by a men’s team who played their games at Sunninghill with “after

match meetings” in The Wells in Cheapside village (now Mikado’s). Teams played as long ago as 1928 under the name

Ascot United but nothing to link them directly to the current club. In 1965, the club had gained permission from the Ascot

Racecourse Trustees to convert the land east of coach park 10 into a football pitch. A wooden clubhouse was built and

this team went on to win many prestigious trophies in the years that followed.

Various youth teams represented Ascot United over the years up to 1988, and 1992 the East Berks 7-a-side Association

was formed by our then Chairman Keith Wicks introducing small-sided junior games and having disbanded in 1980 the

men’s team also reformed. The club continued to grow, entering into partnership with Charters School and being

awarded FA Charter Standard status in 2004. The men’s senior team enjoyed early success through the East Berks

League gaining continued promotions to the Senior division and winning various Cups including the Fielden Charity Cup

in 1996/7. 2001 saw the 1st team join the Reading Senior League and winning the Evening Post Senior Cup at the

Madejski Stadium in 2006. Promotion to the Hellenic League soon followed in 2007, followed by promotion to the

Hellenic Premier Division in 2009. The club today has grown to become one of the largest Community football clubs in

the UK with over 1000 registered players and over 70 teams playing every weekend embracing all ages and abilities

from 5 year olds through to Vets. A new clubhouse opened in September 2010, together with an improved main pitch,

floodlights and a stand.

The club has enjoyed much success at all levels particularly in the Ladies and Girls Section where they are regularly

winners of leagues and county Cups. Our senior Ladies won promotion to the Premier Division of the Southern Region

Women’s’ Football League in 2017-18 and consolidated their position with a mid-table finish in 2018-19. Meanwhile, 2018-

19 was an outstanding one for our junior Boys’ teams who won an array of county cups at various age groups, a feat

we’ve rarely previously achieved.

The past decade has been hugely successful for our first team; our debut in the FA Cup in 2011 attracted 1,149 people to

the Racecourse on a Friday evening where the famous trophy itself was on display and the match was streamed live on

Facebook. Between 2012-13 and 2015-16 we reached the Quarter Final of the FA Vase twice, enjoyed two top-three

finishes in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division, and won both the Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup and Perpetua

Press Floodlit Cup. More recently, our players’ development took the spotlight, as a host of Yellamen have enjoyed

success with other local sides and many of our talented development players stepped up into the first team. After

finishing 2017-18 in style, in 2018-19 new manager Jamie Tompkins led his side to the top of the table for long spells,

winning two team-of-the-month awards, and finishing with league cup glory once again by defeating Windsor 3-1.

We were transferred into the Combined Counties League for the 2019-20 season, playing on our new 3G pitch facility,

which transformed the club by facilitating more of our teams’ matches and training at The Racecourse. The stronger

platform facilitated further player development, and Jamie’s young side would lead the table for long periods before

establishing what looked like a title-winning margin at the top shortly before the league was aborted due to

Coronavirus. Retaining much of the same squad for 2020-21, Jamie saw his side in and around the challengers before

another pandemic-curtailed season, although they battled through to the league cup final where they were ultimately

beaten on penalties by Redhill.

As Ascot enjoy a third season in the Combined Counties League, everyone hopes for a safe and consistent campaign,

and if silverware comes with it then that will surely be a bonus in current times!
