MANY footballers at any level go through their entire playing career without getting a sniff of a cup winner’s medal, writes Dave Wright.

But Kennie Chamberlain has astonishingly collected three in the space of 25 days – and could even make it four by the end of the season.

His first two came with Bracknell Town in the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy and the Bluefin Sport Hellenic League Cup with the midfielder catching the eye in both games.

And last Friday he completed a memorable treble when helping his Sunday team, Morale Madrid, to beat Wokingham & Emmbrook TMW 5-2 in the Bracknell Town & District Sunday League Cup final.

“Three cup final wins in a short space of time – what more could I ask for? I could not be happier,” he said.

His appearances for Hellenic League runners-up Bracknell have been limited, but he is finishing off the season on a real high.

The 23-year-old Chamberlain added: “I hadn’t played too much for Bracknell until the last couple of months.

“I went away for a little bit and my commitment wasn’t quite there, but when I came back I got a bit lucky, played in two cup finals which we won and everything has turned out all right.

“But I have been committed to the Sunday team every week and I am really happy we have won this cup as these are my best mates.”

Chamberlain scored one goal for Morale Madrid and was involved in most of their attacks as he linked up superbly with Shane Cooper-Clark, the pair proving far too good for the Wokingham & Emmbrook defence.

Former Bracknell Town striker Cooper-Clark, now playing for their Hellenic League rivals Thatcham, made a happy return to Larges Lane by scoring a hat-trick.

Chamberlain is hoping to take his season’s medal total to four in the Reading Invitation Senior Cup, but uncertainty still exists over this competition.

The FA Full-Time website shows Bracknell and Wokingham & Emmbrook – originally drawn together in the semi-finals – contesting the final at Madejski Stadium on a date to be decided. The tie had previously been pencilled in for May 20.

That could suggest the organisers have expelled Binfield and Woodcote Stoke Row from the competition following their abandoned semi-final last month, caused by a punch-up involving players from both teams.

However, in the meantime, Binfield have requested a personal hearing with the Berks & Bucks FA and that is due to take place tomorrow (Thursday).

“Hopefully something will be sorted out as it would be nice to get the chance of playing at Madejski Stadium this season,” concluded Chamberlain.

He got his chance in the Robins team due to Jamie McClurg being suspended for four games, but the team’s vice-captain is now available again. Manager Mark Tallentire will find it hard to leave Chamberlain out of his side.

Skipper Carl Davies still has one match to go before completing his five-game ban, while the injured Joe Grant is ruled out for the rest of the season.
