‘Two defeats in four days and now I’ve got to wash the kit!’

You’ve got to feel for Wokingham & Emmbrook Reserves boss Clive McNelly – two defeats and 12 goals conceded in four days and now he has to wash the kit if his facebook post is anything to go by.

The Satsuma’s stalwart saw his side beaten 6-4 at Lowther Road by Chinnor (it was 4-4 at half-time) and Flackwell Heath Reserves helped themselves to a 6-3 win on Tuesday night.


Prior to the double reverse, McNelly’s Hellenic Division 2 East side were unbeaten in three games including a 6-2 win at Hook Norton.

Thankfully the kit has plenty of time to dry out – the Satsuma’s next tie is not until the 5th April when they visit neighbours Bracknell Town.
