PREVIEW: Newport Pagnell Town

We preview tomorrow’s trip to NPT.

Newport Pagnell Town (P9-W7-D1-L1, 22Pts) vs Shrivenham (P11-W5-D2-L4, 17Pts)

Time / Location: 7:45pm / Willen Road, Newport Pagnell

Shriv TV:  We unfortunately won’t be present to cover the game.

With the first date cancelled due to a Hellenic Premier League fixture taking priority and the rearranged date being postponed due to a waterlogged at Willen Lane, both clubs will be hoping it will be a case of third time lucky on Tuesday evening, as the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup campaign finally (we hope!) gets underway.

All the details remain the same from our first preview, aside both clubs having played a game more – our hosts having secured a 6-2 victory at Peterborough Northern Star while we had a stalemate at Thornbury Town.

The winners of the tie will face a trip to Ascot United in Qualifying Round 2
