Ernest Opoku-Ware steps in as Bracknell Town keep up the pace

10-man Bracknell Town had to battle for the three points on Monday at Thatcham Town in the Allied Counties Youth League Central Division after goalkeeper Michael Adams was sent off in the first half.

Bracknell had lead but Thatcham equalised when Adams saw read. Fortunately for the Robins, Ernest Opoku-Ware stepped up between the sticks and the Larges Lane side were able to record a 3-1 win that keeps them in touch with leaders Binfield who they beat last week.

Tom Baldwin, Josh Eatwell and Alexander Lacy all scored for Bracknell.

Last Thursday Ascot United suffered a 5-0 defeat at Camberley Town while Sandhurst Town were beaten 7-0 by Hartley Wintney.
