A busy week of FA Youth Cup football with a number of Berkshire sides involved in Preliminary Round action.

Among those were Wokingham & Emmbrook who moved into the next round with a 5-4 penalty shoot-out win at Fleet Spurs writes Andrew Batt.

The Sumas were forced to play more than 75 minutes with 10 men in the 1-1 normal time draw after goalkeeper Marcus Baines was dismissed for apparently handling the ball outside the box. The Sumas have been drawn at home in the First Qualifying Round to the winners of the Farnborough Town/Cove tie.

Windsor made it through though, beating Northwood 2-1 at Stag Meadow thanks to goals from Hariyan Ross and Finlay Trapps.
