The other big score of the weekend saw Division 2 promotion chasers WAB beat Berkshire United 12-0 and were 7-0 up at half time.

The goals came courtesy of Ryan McManus (5), Tom Smith (4), George Lovell (2) and  Ellis Gregory who picked up the man of the match award.

Top of the league

As per above Finch went top of the league on Sunday – but the big news is that the destination of the trophy is in their hands after Binfield CA beat reigning champions FC Fernhill 6-4.

Binfield have had a wildly inconsistent season after reaching the league cup final last term and had lost their last three games but they rallied to inflict a second defeat of the season on Fernhill who went through the 2015/16 campaign unbeaten.

In Division 2 Binfield Royals have to be favourites for the title after beating long-time table toppers Berkshire All Stars 5-4. Royals goals came from Harry Arquibau, Joe Hardy, Adam Houston and Myles White (2) leaves them a point behind the leaders with three games in hand.

And finally..

Two for you today..

It’s been a long time coming but Division 2 Hope & Anchor finally have a digit in the ‘win’ column courtesy of a 3-1 win over Winnersh Town. The three points puts them level on 6 at the bottom with their opponents.
