Combined Counties League relegation and Reading FC Women frustration

On this week’s episode, Rob Davies headed up the chat once more alongside regulars Tom Canning and Abi Ticehurst to take you through the comings and goings of the Berkshire football scene as the season draws to a close.

Our resident women’s football expert, Abi, talked, or ranted depending on who’s asking, us through Reading’s lacklustre performance against a combative West Ham as the Royals found themselves on the end of a second defeat to the visitors at the SCL this season.

Tom confirmed the good news from the weekend that saw Holyport avoid relegation in the Combined Counties League Premier Division North, meanwhile, Rob talked us through the trials and tribulations of Step 5 and Step 6 promotion and relegation structure with a little speculation from us all about Chalvey and congratulations to Wallingford.

Elsewhere, Tom and Abi discussed their Saturday excursion as they stopped by the much-hyped Finchampstead v Burghfield game at the weekend but the occasion fell a little flat as the hosts ran away with it from the first whistle.

And finally, don’t miss some unnecessary admin chat, an FA Cup victory and Canning’s undying love for Derek Sweetman plus all the other good stuff we ramble about each week.
