Saturday 3rd August

Home vs Punjab United

Our SCEFL Premier Division season kicks off at the EPA against Punjab United. The visitors had a good pre season with two wins and a draw before losing 3-0 to St Margaretsbury in their final match. They have made some good signings to help strengthen a team who are still very much in their infancy as they embark upon only their second season at this level. However we have recruited well and our pre season performances prove that we can once again be a threat at the top of the table. This will be an interesting test to start the season as we had two tight games with them last season. This fixture saw us get the three points and hopefully we will end Saturday with the same result.

Tuesday 6th August

Away vs AFC Croydon Athletic

The first away trip for Becks this season isn’t a long one as we face AFC Croydon Athletic. Our hosts finished last season 21 points behind us but we are well aware that they could cause us problems as they have in the past. This Tuesday night game sees us take on a side who have had similar pre season results to us. An abundance of wins puts both sides in a good place heading into the opening few games of the season.

Saturday 10th August

Home vs Raynes Park Vale

We welcome Raynes Park Vale in our first game of what will hopefully be a lengthy FA Cup journey. Last season we were knocked out by Walton Casuals in the first qualifying round replay. We take on the Combined Counties League Premier Division side in the Extra Preliminary Round. The tie is scheduled to take place on Saturday 10th August with the winners hosting Ashford United in the Preliminary Round.
