Semi finalists revealed in Advantage Printroom Senior and Junior Cups




Despite horrendous weather conditions during the latter part of the week all eight Advantage Printroom League Cup quarter-final ties as well as all scheduled league fixtures were played.

The semi-finals of the Senior Cup will be played out between FC Fernhill and Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW and in the other tie newcomers Athletico Forest will play Finchampstead Athletic. Holders Fernhill were made to battle all the way for their narrow 2-1 win against Loveman United, Loveman’s goal scored by Ryan Millward.

Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW fought out a thrilling 7-5 victory against fellow Bracknell Town & District Sunday League Division 1 side Winkfield whilst there was to be no upset in the Finchampstead Athletic v AFC Crowthorne Stiffs tie, Finch winning that one 1-0. The other, an all Premier Division tie between in-form Crowthorne Inn and Athletico Finch finished stalemate at 0-0 after full time. Forest won the penalty shoot-out 6-5.
