FA Trophy Preliminary Round
It's a break from league action this weekend as Casuals make the journey to Bedfordshire to take on Leighton Town FC.
Our opponents who ply their trade at step 4 similar to ourselves currently sit 19th in the Southern League Central division with 12 points from 12 games. Last weekend they lost 4-0 at home to Godalming Town.
The hosts will be looking to improve on their cup record this season having bowed out to Combined Counties division one side Bedfont & Feltham despite the step 6 side playing much of the second half with 10 men.
Casuals themselves will be seeking their first cup victory of the season.
Kick off is at 3pm and live match updates will be available via twitter.
If the scores are level after 90 minutes then there will be a replay at King George's Arena the following Tuesday (subject to confirmation)
