It's been quite a season for non-league clubs in Berkshire in 2016-17 so far, and two of them go head-to-head on Saturday as Hungerford Town (5th) host Maidenhead United (1st) in the National League South.
Why are we advertising this, I hear you cry? Well, if you're a season ticket holder at the Madejski Stadium, you can gain half price entry at Bulpit Lane to watch the top of the table clash. That works out at £6 for adults and £3 for concessions. Pretty good deal, huh?

Obviously if you're making your way to the South Coast for the similarly top of the table clash in the Championship between Brighton and Reading, you won't be able to take advantage of this offer. But if you aren't travelling down the M25 and do decide to head to Hungerford but are worried about making it home in time for the 5:30pm kick-off at the AMEX, the Crusaders have you sorted. They'll be showing the Sky live game on the big screen after their fixture has finished. Perfect!
So why not take this opportunity to see what should be a really good game between two sides battling to be just one step away from the Football League? After all, Jem Karacan and Ian Harte seem to be a fans of Hungerford, who have on-loan Royals keeper George Legg between the sticks, and that's not bad advice to go on...
Surely time @HungerfordTown Manager Bobby Wilkinson gets at least considered for this role?! https://t.co/LS2zmo6iZJ— Jem Paul Karacan (@JemKaracan6) February 22, 2017
I would love to see @BobbyWilko8787 given the opportunity at @EastleighFC for all the work he has done this season at @HungerfordTown— Ian Harte (@ianharte23) February 22, 2017
Do be warned though, the offer also applies to Swindon and Oxford season ticket holders, so just try and steer clear of them if you spot any!
