Big scores

9 is (sadly) this weeks magic number!

The third side in the County Cup, FC Meta suffered a heavy 9-0 defeat at Reading & District Sunday League Senior Division leaders Dee Road Rangers.

Dee Road, one of the more well known Reading sides and a ‘force’ on the Sunday scene are top of the Senior division with a goal difference of +16 advance to the quarter finals.

Other big scores involving Bracknell sides saw Warfield United knock Bracknell Falcons out of the Junior League cup with a 4-3 victory while bottom of Division 3 Bracknell Titans held FC Harmans Water to a 4-4 draw and Bearwood Wanderers beat Crownwood Dukes 7-0 – also in Division 3.

Clean sheets

A rarity in Sunday League so we celebrate the nine from the weekend..

In the Premier Division, Morale Madrid are catching up with their fixtures and the league leaders after a 5-0 win at Super Reeves, Golden Farmer Rangers kept up the pace at the top with a 4-0 win at home to Raglan while bottom of the table Braybrooke Athletic were beaten 5-0 by Bracknell Celtic who haul themselves away from the bottom.

Just the one Division 1 clean sheet with Ashridge Park beating bottom side 3M 3-0 and in Division 2 WAB beat Bracknell Athletic 4-0 and Binfield Royals defeated Club 8 3-0.

Top of the league

As well as Bearwood Wanderers mentioned above, there were two further clean sheets in Division 3 – but both conspired to see Silver Birch top the table with a 1-0 win over Bracknell Royals.

Previous leaders Ashridge Park u21s were hit for four without reply in a 4-0 defeat at AFC Crowthorne Reserves and have played a game more than the new leaders.

Alphabetical order separates Bracknell Cavaliers and Golden Farmer Rangers at the top of the Premier, Cavaliers 2-2 draw with Binfield AC along with Ranger 4-0 win means the two clubs have identical overall records after six games.

Enjoy the symmetry while it lasts..

Something strangely soothing about that..
