Old Windsor will handover Slough Town Senior Cup after defeat to Taplow United in Quarter Finals

PICTURE: Old Windsor enjoyed an emotional first-ever win in the Slough Town Senior Cup last season but were eliminated in the Quarter Finals this season, losing 2-1 at home to Taplow United on Saturday.

The Slough Town Cup is celebrating its 100th anniversary this season and there will be a new name on the Senior trophy in the spring.

Old Windsor landed an emotional first-ever win in the Senior Cup last season but will go no further than the Quarter Finals this time around after a narrow 2-1 defeat to Taplow United on Saturday. A goal from Rashid Christian-Fares and a man-of-the-match performance from Harry Crimmins was not enough for The Os to avoid a loss at the Old Windsor Recreation Ground.

Frontline have made it through to the Semi Finals in the celebratory year following their 5-1 thrashing of Hambleden at the Burnham Grammar School.

The Slough Town Junior Cup first round tie between Reading YMCA Veterans and Wraysbury Development was abandoned in mid-October after a serious player injury early on in the second half. The tie was replayed on Saturday and, with the scores tied at 3-3 after extra time, Wraysbury won an enthralling penalties shoot-out, 4-5.

Both East Berkshire League representatives bowed out of the Maidenhead Norfolkian Junior Cup after defeat in the Quarter Finals. Eton Wick suffered a heavy 9-1 defeat at Reading YMCA Rapids, whilst Frontline Reserves came closer to a win, losing narrowly 2-1 at Mortimer Development.

Harry Farnan was the star on show as Britwell booked their ticket into the Quarter Finals in the League Cup with a 6-2 win against KS Gryf. Farnan scored four times in the Second Round tie played at the 1878 Stadium in Burnham. The other goals came from Ben White and substitute Joseph Zemaitis.

Southcote moved back into the top half in the East Berkshire League Premier Division after a 5-0 win at bottom side, Surrey Rangers. There was two goals each from substitutes Myles Bedwell-Parsons and Lewis Small, with Jordan Sunderland also hitting the back of the net at Frimley Lodge Park.

Braywood Beavers have moved off the bottom of the table in Division One and relegated Reading Tigers to the basement after a narrow 1-0 win at Burghfield Community Sports Association.

Old Windsor Reserves have climbed up four places to fourth position following a 2-1 victory at AFC Reading, who remain in ninth place. Man of the match, James Ashu, was on the scoresheet for The Os alongside Liam Spires.

Cressex made it back-to-back wins in the league when triumphing over Berks Elite, 6-3, at Holmers Farm Recreation Ground. Both Mohamad Saleh and Patryk Sopata were amongst the goals scorers for Berks Elite, who remain in eighth position in the table.
