Saturday saw three reduced to two Berkshire representatives in the 2020/21 Emirates FA Cup as Bracknell Town and Slough Town both advanced thanks to penalties – albeit in differing circumstances.

The third Second Qualifying Round representatives, Hungerford Town, suffered a 4-0 defeat in Cornwall at Truro City but Bracknell won through on penalties at home to Marlow while a stoppage-time spot-kick ensured Slough advanced at the expense of Vanarama National League South rivals Dartford.

Bracknell had lead 2-0 but allowed Marlow back in to the game in the second half before winning the shootout 4-3 and it was James McKnight who scored the penalty for the Rebels.

Both sides banked £3,375 for winning while Hungerford pocketed £1,125 from the prize fund.
