Maidenhead United's Berks & Bucks Senior Cup final against Hungerford Town to take place at Arbour Park

Maidenhead United's twice postponed Berks & Bucks Cup Final against Hungerford Town is set to take place at Slough Town's Arbour Park ground on Tuesday, July 25. 

It will be the first final in the competition's history to be played on an artificial surface. 

It was originally due to take place at Bracknell Town's ground in the final week's of the season, but was pushed back till the end of the season due to both side's promotion efforts taking precedence.

The Berks & Bucks FA tried once again to stage the match at York Road on May 1, in the days after Maidenhead's title win was confirmed at Margate, but Hungerford boss Bobby Wilkinson claimed that would have simply been a title celebration for the Magpies so it was delayed once again.

The Magpies last lifted the trophy in 2015 when Johnson Hippolyte guided the side to a 4-1 win over Aylesbury United in his final match as manager.

Current manager Alan Devonshire collected the last of his four wins in the competition with Maidenhead in 2003.

The Magpies last met the Crusaders in the competition in November 2014 when United crept into the next round after a penalty shoot out victory. Both of last season's National League South matches were drawn.
