Old Windsor and Pundit reach Last 16 in the Berks & Bucks F.A. Charles Twelftree Trophy


PICTURE: Old Windsor have qualified for the last 16 in the Berks & Bucks F.A. Charles Twelftree Trophy after a 4-3 win against SB Phoenix in the Second Round on Saturday.


Old Windsor and Pundit will represent the East Berkshire Football League in the Last 16 of the Berks & Bucks F.A. Charles Twelftree Trophy this season after wins in the Second Round of the competition on Saturday.

The Os are the current clear leaders in the EBFL Premier Division and welcomed S.B. Phoenix to the Old Windsor Recreation Ground, the visitors currently propping up the table in the Thames Valley League Premier Division.

Goals from both Sam George and Adam McNamara helped the home team to a 2-1 lead at the break before both Lewis Corney and substitute Rashid Christian-Fares found a route to goal to secure progression.

Old Windsor will again meet opposition from the Thames Valley League in the Third Round of the competition, this time making the trip to Burghfield on Saturday 11th November (1.30pm).

Pundit made the trip to Elmhurst of the Aylesbury & District Football League in their bid to reach the Last 16 and left with a 3-2 victory with Adam Durrant, Thaon Richardson and Tapuwa Mataz all on the scoresheet. The Elmhurst goals came either side of half-time from Jigar Sandhu and Aliyaan Haider.

The reward for Pundit is another road trip in Round Three, this time to Padbury Rangers of the North Bucks & District League with the tie scheduled to be played on Saturday 11th November (1.30pm).

Southcote exited the Charles Twelftree Trophy in the second round following a 3-0 loss at Reading YCMA from the Thames Valley League Premier Division. The visitors’ chances were not helped after a red card was shown to Bradley Hyde.

Singh Sabha were dumped out of the competition after a heavy 6-1 defeat at Old Bradwell United – the home team mid-table in Division Two of the Spartan South Midlands League. Ross Butler did the damage for the hosts, bagging two goals in the first period and another late on in the tie to complete his hat-trick. There were goals from Scott Valentine either side of the break, with Kieran Roberts also on target in the second half. Singh Sabha pulled a goal back through Pritpal Raju in the first period.

The Berks & Bucks F.A David Grainge Junior Trophy reaches the Second Round stage this Saturday and five members of the East Berkshire League will be in action. South Reading currently set the pace in Division One and will travel to Harchester Hawks, standing sixth in Division Three of the Thames Valley League.

AFC Reading are just outside the promotion places in EBFL Division One and head to Marcham, currently third in Division Three of the North Berks League. Eton Wick will have home advantage when hosting Allied Community Elite at Haywards Mead, the visitors in second position in Division Two of the Thames Valley League. There is also an all-EBFL tie in the second round as FC Riverside made the short trip to Reading Tigers.

Both Berks Elite and Real Saracens have been awarded a walkover win after their scheduled opposition conceded ties and will be in the hat for the Third Round of the Junior Trophy.
