Six Berkshire sides went in to the weekends FA Vase Second Qualifying Round fixtures and two emerged to go in to the hat for the First Round Proper draw on Monday.
Binfield and Ascot United were the two that advanced, but the Moles were given a bit of a scare early on when AFC Aldermaston took the lead on 23 minutes after Monay Mills-Chandler scored on the rebound from a penalty.
Watch Monay Mills-Chandler score at the second attempt:
The sides were level on 34 minutes when Josh Helmore levelled for Binfield and captain Sean Moore sent Binfield through with two second half strikes.
Ascot made the relatively short trip to Combined Counties League Premier DiIvision rivals Frimley Green and led 2-0 inside the first 26 minutes through debutant Max Austin and fellow new signing James Knight.
Youngster James Richardson made it 3-0 early in the second half with a curling strike from the edge of the box. Read the report on the Ascot United site here.
