Bracknell Town extended their winning start to the season in the Bostik League South Central Division 1 with a 5-0 win at Ashford Town (Middlesex) but saw striker Adam Cornell substituted with a bad cut above his eye on 23 minutes.

The Robins were ahead 1-0 at the break through a Joe Grant strike while Gavin James doubled the lead on 50 minutes. Grant was at it again on 58 minutes with his second and completed a hat trick two minutes later. Liam Ferdinand then got in on the act with 20 minutes remaining.

In the FA Cup, Binfield’s run ended with a 3-0 defeat at home to Southern League Cirencester Town. The Moles were without suspended captain James Knight and centre back Jeff Brown while Sean Moore and Danny Horscroft were also unavailable.
