Football in Bracknell

Friendlies: Mixed fortunes for Binfield, Bracknell and Wokingham

Friendlies: Mixed fortunes for Binfield, Bracknell and Wokingham

For most of our local sides Saturday was the first chance to get out on the green stuff in anger as Bracknell Town, Binfield and Wokingham & Emmbrook were in action.

There was a win for Binfield against Badshot Lea. The Moles were 2-1 winners with Roger Herridge particularly pleased with Development Team goalkeeper Liam Vaughan.

He said: “Delighted in our afternoons work where we conceded an early goal after 30 seconds to recover to win comfortably 2-1 . Tom Williams scored both goals for us and ‘keeper Liam Vaughan looked very comfortable between the sticks deputising for Garry Aulsbury who is away on holiday.

Wokingham & Emmbrook played out a thrilling 4-4 draw with Cockfosters – all the more pleasing for the Sumas considering they trailled 4-1 their Spartan South Midlands League Premier visitors at half-time.

Tweeter @woodrowalex posted a video of Jake Wheeler’s double that levelled things up for Wokingham:

Bracknell Town were beaten 3-2 by Combined Counties Premier Division side Camberley Town but there was better news for their under 21 side who made a winning start to the FootballinBracknell pre season cup with an 8-2 win over Ascot United.

Elsewhere Woodley United were beaten 2-1 by Southern League Marlow – Jake Nicholls got the goal for United.
