Binfield and Woodley United through in cup competitions

Binfield made it through a tricky Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup Preliminary Round tie on Monday night with Burnham at Hill Farm Lane.

The Moles had to wait until second half injury time for a leveller from from Jemel Johnson after Burnham had opened the scoring on 51 minutes.

If substitute Johnson was the normal time here, it was goalkeeper Joe Williams who won the plaudits in the penalty shoot out, making four saves as Binfield won 2-1.
