“Delighted to have reached the Reading Senior Cup Final . There wasn’t an awful lot between the sides but I just felt we had that extra bit of
quality in the final third.

Herridge was keen to single out members of the clubs Fielden Cup winning side for special praise with 19-year-old Jamie McCarthy in particular top of the Binfield boss’s list.

“Jamie McCarthy made his full debut and was excellent with a man of the match performance. Another reserve team regular Callum Carlisle – 19, was exemplary at right back as was Reid Brown also 19.

“Lewis Leonetti and captain Alex Luis in a back four that never looked like being breached.
