Top of the league
Bracknell Cavaliers lead the Premier Division once again, taking advantage of their rivals cup dates with a 4-2 win at Raglan FC. They lead Golden Farmer Rangers and Binfield AC by two points having completed their game in hand.
There was no change in Division 1 with all sides in cup action – Crowthorne Inn continue to lead the way while in Division 2 Bracknell Saint-Germain lost ground on the leaders with a 5-1 defeat at Newbold College.
Ashridge Park under 21s took top spot in Division 3 with a 4-1 win at Finchampstead Athletic Sunday ‘A’ – going joint top of the division with Bracknell Falcons who also won – but Park have a superior goal difference of +12.
Contributor Douglas King has sent this report in from AFC Crowthorne’s 2-1 win over Bracknell Forest in the Senior Cup.
Douglas writes: “A wonder strike from Nick Walker on his debut for AFC Crowthorne was enough to them progress. Crowthorne took the lead midway through the first half when Michael McCombie met an Andre Jardim cross at the far post to guide home. Bracknell Forest replied before the break with a well worked goal and the Forest ‘keeper Paul Brady was in outstanding form throughout, but could do nothing when Nick Walker found the top corner with a curling strike from the left.”
