Frontline Reserves make a winning start in bid to retain the Slough Town Junior Cup trophy

PICTURE: Frontline Reserves celebrate winning the Slough Town Junior Cup east season. The team made a successful start to the defence of the trophy with a win against Slough Heating Laurencians Reserves on Saturday.

The Maidenhead Norfolkian Senior Cup made its much-anticipated return on Saturday after a two year absence because of the Coronavirus and there was 16 goals shared across four First Round ties.

There was an all-East Berkshire League tie where Iver Heath won 2-0 at Old Windsor thanks to goals from Kingsley Etefia and Matt Gingell.

Britwell has been scoring goals for fun in recent weeks and put seven past Maidenhead Town Reserves to ease into the next round. Both Harry Farnan and substitute Lawrie Toombs scored twice in the victory, with further goals from Charlie Graves, Stuart Rowbottom and the in-form Joseph Zemaitis, who also scored a hat-trick for the Steamteam last weekend.

Taplow United made smooth progress in the competition after a 6-1 win at home against Chalvey Sports Reserves. Both Justin Bangura and Jordan Jawandha bagged a brace, with Ryan Moore and Kris Tuffour also hitting the back of the net.

A single goal was enough for Holyport Reserves to edge past Singh Sabha, whilst Southcote were awarded a walkover win when Hype Train could not fulfil the fixture.

Frontline Reserves began the defence of the Slough Town Junior Cup trophy with a 2-1 win against Slough Heating Laurencians Reserves in a First Round tie on Saturday.

Goals from both Loren Dennis and Dean James were not enough to see Eton Wick through after a 7-2 defeat at Reading City Development.

SB Phoenix Reserves edged out AFC Reading 3-2.

The tie between Reading YMCA Vets and Wraysbury Development was abandoned in the second half after a serious player injury. The tie was level at 1-1 at the time of the abandonment.

Surrey Rangers bowed out of the Surrey FA Saturday Lower Junior Cup after a 7-2 defeat at Bookham. Jeremy Crute was the star on show with a hat-trick, Nicholas Bond bagged a brace, with further goals from George Saunders and substitute Daniel Hughes.

Stoke Poges became the fourth different team to stand at the top of Division One this season following their 3-0 win against a former leader Berks Elite on Saturday.

Sandhurst Town returned to winning form and moved up to second place, behind Stoke Poges on goals difference, after a 4-1 victory over Reading Tigers.
