On Saturday in the Hellenic League Division One east AFC Aldermaston hosted Chalvey sports in a Berkshire derby. It was the visitors who took the lead midway through the first half through an Aydn Coomber free kick from 25 yards out, and they took their 1-0 advantage into the break.

The Atom Men struck back on the hour mark through Monay Mills-Chandler and the striker gave the host the lead 15 minutes later as he latched onto a headed back-pass to round the keeper and make the score 2-1. With a couple of minutes remaining Mills-Chandler completed his hat-trick and secured the win with the game finishing 3-1 to Aldermaston.

Holyport travelled to face Kidlington Development looking to maintain their undefeated start to the season. It was looking good for Port as goals from Steven Deverall and Andy Forisky gave them a 2-1 lead at the break, but despite a number of chances they could not add to their advantage in the second half, and late in the game Kidlington equalised to leave honours even on the day.

Wokingham & Emmbrook made the trip Court Place Farm to face Long Crendon. After a goalless first half the Sumas took the lead in the 75th minute through a Josh Harris penalty after a handball in the box. There was a sting in the tail for Wokingham as Crendon struck twice in the last 5 minutes to secure all three points for the home side.

Wallingford Town welcomed Langley to the Wallingford Sports ground with both sides looking for their first league win of the season. First half goals from Charlie Silkstone and Euan Aitchinson were enough to give Wally all three points, with Langley only managing one goal in reply. The win sees Wallingford climb to 14th with Langley remain at the foot of the table.

Woodley United endured a day to forget as they were beaten 6-0 at home by Penn & Tylers Green. The visitors led 2-0 at half time and piled on another 4 goals in the second half. The defeat leaves the Kestrels in 15th place, 2 spots above the bottom of the table.

In the Combined Counties League Sandhurst Town continued their good start to the season with a 4-1 victory over FC Deportivo Galicia at Bottom Meadow. It took the Fizzers just 3 minutes to take the lead as Brad Brow tapped in from close range after good work down the right by Grant Kemp.

Kemp got his second assist less than 10 minutes later as he played in Ashley Ledger who scored at the second time of asking. It was 3-0 before the half hour mark as Jamie Mitchell’s cross evaded everyone including the Deportivo goalkeeper and ended up in the back of the net. The fourth goal didn’t arrive until 15 minutes from time when Mitchell played in Callum Samuel who controlled the ball before sliding it in. Deportivo grabbed a late consolation but that was all they could manage as Sandhurst secured their 5th win in 7 games to maintain their second place in the league.

At the ESA Ground Eversley & California hosted Tooting Bec, one of two undefeated sides in the division. The Boars enjoyed an early period of pressure during which they had a goal ruled out for offside, but it was the visitors who took the lead from the penalty spot, with Ali Dickie being sent to the sin bin for dissent in the aftermath. 10 minutes from the final whistle Eversley had Connor Allston sent off for a second yellow card, before the visitors won another penalty which they converted to make the final score 2-0.
