HARTS Of Bracknell remain unbeaten in the League this season after a 4-2 win in the latest Showcase Match at Burnham Football Club on Friday night.
The team is new to the East Berkshire League having made the progression from youth football (East Berkshire Alliance) in the summer and they out-gunned the more senior Chalvey Sports A under the lights.
Kai James was the star on show with a hat-trick, and Tommy Rymell-Board was also on target in a success that moves their side three points clear at the top of the Division One table.

The League Cup continued last weekend with eight teams battling for a place in the quarter finals and neutrals were treated to four cracking second round ties.
Frontline Reserves recovered from falling two-goals behind against Stoke Poges thanks to strikes from Lorent Baleci and Kacper Kloc, but ultimately lost to their hosts 8-7 in sudden death penalties.
Baylis United did cause the shock of the round when dumping out Premier Division leaders Britwell, 4-3.
