Southcote win again to remain unbeaten ahead of crunch trip to Premier Division leaders Britwell

PICTURE: Southcote remain unbeaten in the Premier Division this season after a 4-2 win against Iver Heath on Saturday and travel to leaders Britwell next weekend.

Southcote maintained their unbeaten start to the new East Berkshire League Premier Division season after a 4-2 win against Iver Heath on Saturday.

Southcote took voluntary promotion into the Premier Division in the summer having finished just outside the top three in Division One last season, and the team continues to make an impressive start.

Having already earned a point at title contenders Old Windsor, Southcote took all three points in their meeting with Iver Heath, who themselves have made a goos start to the season.

The success at Burghfield Community Sports Association means Southcote stand in fourth position in the table, four points behind leaders Britwell, who host the young stars next Saturday (2pm).

In an incredible match with missed chances and three penalties, Frontline recovered from falling behind to beat KS Gryf 5-4 at the Polish Club and move up to second position in the league table.

Frontline took the lead with a spot-kick inside three minutes and should have been well clear before Gryf levelled and then scored again to edge ahead at the break.

The home team made a blistering start to the second half with a superb solo effort inside 60 seconds of the restart. The two sides both scored again and, trailing 4-2, the match looked all but over for Frontline when they were reduced to 10 men.

The visitors however, were inspired and pulled one back with eight minutes still to play, and then scored twice more from the penalty spot for a momentous 5-4 victory - Gryf somewhat unlucky not to come away with at least a draw and maintain their own unbeaten start to the campaign.

Sandhurst Town returned to the top of Division One with an impressive 4-0 win against in-form Frontline Reserves at Sandhurst Memorial Park on Saturday. Kyle Ollive scored a brace in the success, with further goals from Jack Kelly and substitute Jamie Barrett.

Old Windsor Reserves made it back-to-back wins on the road with a 2-0 victory at bottom side Reading Tigers to climb to third position, three points behind Sandhurst. The goals came in the first half from Jake Bartlett and Sam George.

A second-half goal from player-coach Fabio Caiazzo was not enough for Berks Elite in a 4-1 defeat at FC Baylis, the victors leapfrogging them in the table to fourth place.

Bruno Jeffery was the star on show for Cressex when his first-half hat-trick helped the hosts to a 7-2 victory over AFC Reading and maintain their perfect winning start in Division One. Jack Low scored two goals in the second period with Sam Greenwood also finding the back of the net.

Eton Wick moved off the foot of the table after thumping Braywood Beavers 8-2 at Maidenhead & Bray Cricket Club, relegating the Beavers to second from bottom.

Sandhurst Town will have the opportunity to increase their lead at the top in Division One if they can win at Braywood Beavers. Reading Tigers will be looking for a first league win this season when hosting FC Baylis at Burghfield Community Sports Association.

Cressex will move into the top half of the table if they can win at home to Frontline Reserves, whilst both Eton Wick and AFC Reading are both in need of points ahead of their meeting at Haywards Mead.

The first round in the Slough Town Junior Cup concludes when Old Windsor Reserves host Stoke Poges. And the Ascot & Fielden Charity Cup begins as the Old Windsor first team head to KS Gryf.
