The Ascot & Fielden Charity Cup is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year and the final will be played between Singh Sabha and Southcote at Ascot United on Friday, 20 May.
Singh Sabha are cup specialists and reached their third final this season when beating Frontline 4-2 at Alec Reed Academy on Friday night. There was two goals from Mubarak Bashir and one each for Pritpal Raju and Karim Chaibi.
Reaching the final is a tremendous achievement for Southcote in their first-ever season in the East Berkshire League. Having beaten both Iver Heath and KS Gryf in earlier rounds, Southcote stunned further Premier Division opposition, Britwell, in a 6-2 on Saturday. Eric Macharia was the star on show with a hat-trick, while Jayden Sunderland netted twice with Rocco Sofroniou also on target.

There was just a single game in the Premier Division, and the goalless stalemate between Hype Train and Cressex (a prelude to the upcoming Presidents Cup final between the two teams) means both move up one place in the table.
There was no change at the top in Division One as leaders Harts Of Bracknell and second-placed Old Windsor Reserves both secured wins. A late goal from substitute Laith Belkacem was enough for The O’s to win at home against Winkfield Reserves.
A Bradley Fuller brace was not enough for Eton Wick to avoid a 3-2 defeat at home at the hands of Harts Of Bracknell.
Stoke Poges have finished top in Group A of the Challenge Cup following a 4-1 win at Chalvey Sports A, who miss out on a spot in the semi finals.
Stoke Poges will take on Winkfield Reserves in the semi finals at Eton Wick this Saturday (3pm). The second semi final sees Britwell take on Iver Heath at The Wick (1pm).
