Nathan Minhas opens the scoring in the FA Cup and sends Ascot United through

Ascot United are the first Berkshire side through in 2018/19 FA Cup after beating Camberley Town 2-1 at the Racecourse Ground on Friday night.

In form striker Nathan Minhas netted the first goal of this seasons competition to put the Yellamen 1-0 up at half time and James Haworth doubled the lead on 52 minutes having had a penalty appeal turned down minutes earlier.

10 minutes later the Krooners pulled one back but any threat of a fightback was curtailed after the dismissal of full back Dan Dansie for a straight red card.

A crowd of 277 watched on at the Racecourse Ground as Ascot stretched their unbeaten start to the season to three games while Minhas sits on six goals in three games. The Yellamen also walk away from the fixture with a prize of £2,250.

The FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round continues on Saturday afternoon with the following fixtures for Berks clubs:

  • Crawley Green vs Woodley United
  • Farnham Town vs Binfield
  • Holyport vs Brimscombe & Thrupp
  • Reading City vs Chipping Sodbury Town
