Josh Harris free kick not enough for Wokingham & Emmbrook

Holyport emerged 2-1 winners when they took on Wokingham & Emmbrook in the Hellenic League Subsidary Cup on Monday night at Larges Lane.

On the night Fabian Driffill and Chris Defranco scored for Port either side of half time before a wonderful 64th minute Josh Harris free kick game Wokingham hope of a share of the spoils.

Watching on, Louis Steinborn-Busse captured Harris’s goal for the Sumas:

Derek Sweetman’s side top a group that includes the Sumas, AFC Aldermaston and Woodley United with five wins and one draw from their six games.

Wokingham can still qualify for the knockout stages of the competition if they can win their final game against Woodley on 8th January 2019.

Elsewhere Binfield beat Hellenic League Premier Division promotion chasers Wantage Town 3-1 at Hill Farm Lane, but the win wasn’t without cost after Jack Thomson-Wheeler suffered a broken fibula and full back Charley Tuttle was sent off late on for a second bookable offence.
