Sixteen Spartan South Midlands League sides are in FA Vase action at the weekend with each side facing a team from another league. Edgware Town (at home to Thurlow Nunn Premier Division Whitton United) and Southall (away to Essex Senior League side Sporting Bengal United) represent Division One with the rest made up of Premier Division sides. Whitton's Director of Football is ex-professional Ruel Fox so he may make an appearance at Silver Jubilee Park at the weekend. 

Games featuring Essex Senior League sides 
Barking v Tring Athletic
Bowers & Pitsea v Hanworth Villa
Diss Town v Basildon United
Hadley v FC Romania
Harefield United v Greenhouse Sports
Ilford v AFC Kempston Rovers
Sporting Bengal United v Southall

Seven Essex Senior League sides are in action and again none play each other in all ESL ties. Bowers and Pitsea (currently top of the league on goal difference) have recently signed ex Great Wakering Rovers manager Den Trenkel welcome Combined Counties League Premier Division side Hanworth Villa who are currently in sixth place in their league. 

BETVICTOR.COM are offering odds for the FA Vase making Hereford FC and Shildon 5/1 joint favourites followed by Salisbury at 8/1 and Alvechurch at 10/1. AFC Dunstable are the best rated SSMFL side at 16/1 with Barking and B&P at 66/1 the best rated of the ESL sides. 

Hereford FC (currently top of the table) travel to fellow Midland Football League Premier Division side Rocester (16th) whilst Shildon (2nd in the Northern League Division One) are also on the road to Handsworth Parramore (3rd place in the Northern Counties East Premier Division). Could Handsworth (unbeaten in thirteen league and cup games) cause a shock and knock Shildon out?
