Kingstonian will be looking to bounce back from defeat last Sunday as they face Wingate and Finchley in the FA Trophy. 

Hayden Bird's team are yet to take flight in the Isthmian League Premier Division but begin their FA Trophy campaign with a team sat below them in the table. 

Wingate and Finchley still haven't won a league game and have drawn six, the same number as the Ks, and when the two teams met earlier in the season the game ended two-all. 

Kick-off at Imperial Fields is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hampton and Richmond are in for a tough task to make it back-to-back wins in National League South as Welling United visit the Beveree Stadium. 

It has been ten days since Hampton's last game in the league when they got a much needed 1-0 win at Hungerford and in between then they made the FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round with a big win against Paulton but to continue the good vibes will be tricky. 

Welling are the visitors to the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium and they are sat inside the play-off places and they haven't lost for five matches and have a striker in Adebayo Azeez in fine form having score six goals in ten matches. 

Kick-off at the Rocket Hospitality Beveree Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hanwell Town begin their FA Trophy campaign looking to end a run of three games without a win as Cray Wanderers visit Reynolds Field. 

It had been a strong start to the season for the Geordies and they do still sit fourth in the Southern League Southern Premier, but a malaise has started to set in at the moment during a short barren run. 

A frustrating draw and defeat against teams lower down the league came either side of an FA Cup exit at the hands of National League South leaders Ebbsfleet United mean that they are in need of a positive result this weekend. 

Cray Wanderers will also be looking for a confidence boosting win as they sit eight in the Isthmian League Premier, but have only won one of their last four in tier seven. 

Kick-off at Reynolds Field is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hanworth Villa will be looking to reach the FA Trophy First Round proper this weekend as they travel to Burgess Hill Town. 

The Villains have made it through two rounds of FA Trophy qualifying already, defeating Northwood and Littlehampton Town to set up this play-off with Burgess Hill Town. 

It will give confidence to Hanworth fans that Littlehampton play in the same division as Burgess Hill, Isthmian League South East division, and are above them in the table. 

The Hillians are yet to win in the league this season and required penalty shoot-outs to make it through their previous two FA Trophy rounds. 

Kick-off at Leylands Park is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Brentford Women begin their L&SERWFL League Cup campaign against Newhaven Ladies. 

Having had a big loss against Abingdon United in the Women's FA Cup, despite there being positives to take, they will be looking to get back to winning ways on Sunday. 

Newhaven have had a mixed start to their season in LSE Division One South, having won two of their opening five and sat in mid table, on the same number of points as Brentford in Division One North. 

Kick-off at Bedfont Sports Club is at 3pm on Sunday.
