Crowthorne Inn top the early Premier Division table following their 5-2 win away at Woodley Saints. Berks County are level on points with Inn after shading a tight contest with Bracknell Rangers by 2-1. County led 2-0 in the first 20 minutes but Joe Henry pulled one back for Rangers just before the break. The game ebbed and flowed in the second half with County holding out for the win.
