Britwell and Frontline win again to set up mouthwatering top-of-the-table clash this Saturday

PICTURE: There was no change in the top to the East Berkshire League Premier Division on Saturday after both Britwell and Frontline managed to win, both now five points clear of the rest of the pack.

East Berkshire League Premier Division leaders Britwell and Frontline put daylight between themselves and the chasing pack after both teams recorded wins on Saturday.

Britwell, the defending champions and table-toppers, kept their two points lead on Frontline with a 3-0 victory against Southcote. Their goals came from Daniel Malloy, Charlie Samuels and Joseph Zemaitis. Malloy now has four goals in as many matches this season whilst red-hot Zemaitis has bagged six in five games. The Southcote cause was not helped with red cards shown to both Connor Paxford and substitute George Paxford.

Frontline kept up the pace in second position thanks to a 3-1 success at sixth-placed Surrey Rangers. There was a brace from Lorent Baleci and Sherif Elghonemi also found the back of the net.

Sandhurst Town opened up a five points lead at the top in Division One after their 4-0 win at bottom side, Braywood Beavers. There was a goal in the first half from substitute Jack Kelly, with both Oliver Tildesley and Kyle Ollive - the leading goals scorer in the division with 10 goals in seven matches - finding a route past the Braywood keeper in the second period.

Frontline Reserves climbed the table into second position with a narrow 3-2 success at Cressex, the home team losing their perfect winning record in the league this season. Substitute, Duane Herbert scored twice in the win and the third goal came from Tyson Dyer.

Eton Wick have leapfrogged AFC Reading into eighth place thanks to a high-scoring 6-4 victory at Haywards Meadow. A Ben Hardy hat-trick was not enough for the visitors to slip to a defeat - Reece Jones added the fourth goal. Alex Lyle fired The Wick to a second successive league win with two goals, and there were further strikes from Loren Dennis, Adam Richards, and Chris Smith.

Reading Tigers have moved off the bottom of the table with their first league win of the season, beating FC Baylis 5-3 at Burghfield Community Sports Association. Both Kacper Sek and Oskar Jaroslaw Sieg scored twice in the victory, with Jakub Jarzebowski coming off the bench to add a fifth goal.

The first round in the Slough Town Junior Cup concluded last weekend with a 3-0 win for Stoke Poges at Division One rivals, Old Windsor Reserves. Tai Maddox helped himself to a double with substitute Sam Manton also helping Poges into the Quarter Finals.

In another contender for Match of the Season, KS Gryf beat Old Windsor 11-10 in an incredible penalties shoot-out to decide their Ascot & Fielden Charity Cup tie. The first round game ended 3-3 in 90 minutes at the Polish Association. The Gryf goals came from Mihai-Daniel Enache, Mateusz Golebiewski and Ibrahim Suliman, whilst Lucas Benge hit the back of the net twice for The Os.

There is a full programme of league action this Saturday (2pm ko’s) highlighted by a top-of-the-table clash in the Premier Division between Britwell and Frontline at the Chicken Ranch. Britwell won the reserve fixture 3-0 on the opening weekend in the season.

Old Windsor will be out to close the gap on the top two when travelling to Surrey Rangers, whilst Southcote bid to regain the winning thread at home to Chalvey Sports Reserves. KS Gryf will move off the bottom of the table if they can earn a draw or better away at Iver Heath.

There is also a huge top-of-the-table match in Division One as leaders Sandhurst Town make the trip to fourth-placed Old Windsor Reserves. The gap between the top sides is currently six points but The Os have played two fewer matches.

Stoke Poges will be out to maintain their perfect winning start to the season in the league with a win at sixth-placed Berks Elite, the hosts will leapfrog their guests should all three points remain in West Berkshire.

Both FC Baylis and Cressex are hoping to regain the winning thread in their meeting at Harvey Park, whilst Braywood Beavers will move off the bottom if they can win at Eton Wick. Both Reading Tigers and AFC Reading are in need of three points from their meeting at Burghfield Community Sports Association.
