Weekend: Weather affects Hellenic League fixtures but three points for Berks County FC




The biggest news out of the Hellenic League Premier Division on Saturday was promotion chasing Highworth Town dropping points at home to Flackwell Heath in a 3-2 defeat, the Heathens firing a late winner through Francis Amartey – much to the delight of Bracknell Town and Thatcham Town fans.

Bracknell, Binfield, Ascot United and Woodley United all saw their fixtures postponed but Thatcham remain title favourites following a 2-0 win at Brackley Town Saints thanks to goals from Dan Rapley and Ross Cook.

Three games survived the weather in Division 1 East with Sandhurst Town’s promotion challenge taking a dent following a 2-0 defeat to second placed Bicester Town while Penn & Tylers Green took top spot in their quest for a third successive league title with a 4-2 win at Thame Rangers.

Over in the Thames Valley Premier League two Dan Money goals were enough for Berks County to earn a first win for new manager Lee Simpson when they beat Wokingham & Emmbrook Reserves 2-1 at Lowther Road while in the Suburban League Ascot United Reserves were beaten 4-1 by a strong Bracknell Town Development side, Seb Bowerman (2), TJ Bohane and Dan Read with the goals while Harvey Beales replied for the Yellamen.
