Britwell produced a dominant performance to win at Iver Heath and return to the top of the East Berkshire League Premier Division table on Saturday.

The Steamteam was humbled after an early exit from the Slough Town Senior Cup last weekend but, put those demons behind them quickly with a thumping 6-0 win at the Iver Heath Recreation Ground.

Joseph Zemaitis was the star on show for the visitors with a hat-trick, with further goals from Harry Farnan, Charlie Graves and substitute Daniel Malloy.

Britwell were able to return to the top after rivals and former leaders Old Windsor dropped points following a 1-1 home draw with Southcote.

Both the goals came in the first half and from the penalty spot, Harvey Seeman hitting the back of the net for the Os. Both teams were also reduced to 10 men during the match as Os’ Chris Tierney and Southcote substitute Myles Bedwell-Parsons saw red.

Surrey Rangers secured their first win in the East Berkshire League with a 4-2 success at Chalvey Sports Reserves. Substitute Daryl Healey bagged a brace with further goals from Darren Cann and Josh Lysaght.

Kacper Kloc was the main main for Frontline with a hat-trick, with Adam Qurban and substitute Tyson Dyer also on the scoresheet.

Berks Elite moved temporarily to the top of the table following their goalless draw at home to FC Baylis, who stand in sixth position in the table.
