The Cityzens are back in cup action on Monday evening when we travel to Ascot Ladies in the Quarter Final of the Football in Berkshire Invitational Virtual Cup. This is a rearranged cup tie, the original fixture was due to be played on Friday 4th December.
With grassroots football activity suspended following new national restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19 coming into effect on Thursday 5th November, the non-league football community has had to come up with other ways of keeping busy.
Football in Berkshire, a site dedicated to everything about and related to football in the Royal County of Berkshire has very kindly brought back its popular virtual cup tournament, which saw local clubs compete against each other during the last lockdown.
Having been drawn at home in the first three rounds, the Cityzens face tough competition on the road in the fourth round against YMCA Reading but your support saw us through. We're now on the road again as we head to Ascot, in what will be another tough test.
How it works
Cup ties in the Football in Berkshire Invitational Virtual Cup will be decided by Twitter Polls which will run for four hours, the side with the most votes will progress.
How do I vote
You'll need access to a Twitter account and then you'll need to keep an eye on our official feed @ReadingCityFC on Monday evening for a link to the poll, once the poll is live you'll just need to click on the team who you'd like to vote for. If you don't have a Twitter account, please spread the word and tell people who do and help us progress to the next round.
