Cup Opponents

Reading have played two distinct teams called Hendon in the FA Cup. The first, founded in 1874, were their opponents twice in the nineteenth century. The second were originally Hampstead Town, becoming Golders Green in 1933 and Hendon in 1946. They have met Reading three times, beating them once.

There were two teams named Sutton Town around in the 1930s, one from Sutton in Ashfield, near Mansfield, and the other from Sutton Coldfield, near Birmingham. They are now known as Ashfield United and Sutton Coldfield Town, respectively. It was the Ashfield variety that Reading played in 1933.

Gainsborough Trinity are interesting because they were in the Football League when Reading beat them in the FA Cup. Guildford City were previously known as Guildford United, under which name they played against Reading Reserves in the Southern League. Maidenhead merged with Maidenhead Norfolkians after the First World War to form the current Maidenhead United club. Newbury became Newbury Town after the First World War, but went bankrupt in 1995.
