Ben Knight - who rejoined from Bracknell Town - notched twice in the opening 10 minutes, whilst Luke Wilson also grabbed a brace as Ascot enjoyed the perfect start.

The Yellamen were boosted this week with the news that Rob Saunders, Ian Brooks, Andrew Dean, Daryl McLean, Jesse Wilson, Luke Wilson, Joe Yeates and Adam Harman will be returning to The Racecourse next season.

Next up for Ascot is an away friendly at Sheerwater tonight (7pm ko), whilst on Saturday the Yellamen travel to Sutton Coldfield Town (3pm) to continue their pre-season.

Elsewhere, Bracknell Town came from behind to record a 2-1 victory against Southern League side Uxbridge in their second pre-season friendly at Cantley Park on Saturday.

Bracknell had fallen behind early on, but levelled in the second-half from a Luke Angel overhead kick.

Harry Brown grabbed the winner just before full-time to give Ed Carpenter his first win as Bracknell Town boss.

The Robins will look to build on that win when their pre-season campaign continues on Saturday as they host Holmer Green at Cantley Park (3pm ko).

Bracknell Town have announced that the Reserve side will now be known as Bracknell Town Development at the request of their new boss Lee Simpson.

Simpson is looked to put an emphasis on players under 23, and feels the name change reflects his determination to use the team as a way of preparing youth and junior players for the step up to the Robins’ first team.

The club will continue to compete in Uhlsport Hellenic League Division Two East under Simpson , as he looks to continue the good work of his predecessor Carpenter, who is now in charge of the first team at Larges Lane.

Wokingham & Emmbrook suffered their first defeat of pre-season as they lost 2-1 to Flackwell Heath on Saturday after late drama at Cantley Park.

Dan Batmen’s men went behind midway through the first-half when a controversial penalty was awarded and well converted to put the visitors ahead.

Star man Luke Scope had a goal harshly disallowed for offside midway through the second-half, but the Sumas did draw level late on when Julian Harley broke free of the back line and lobbed the keeper from 18 yards.

But there was a late twist as Flackwell Heath found a winner in injury-time when a shot from 15 yards found the back of the net to condemn the Sumas to defeat.

Next up for Wokingham is an away trip to Hartley Wintney on Saturday (3pm ko).

Eversley were due to play Binfield last Saturday but had to pull out late on.

They will host Highmoor Ibis on Saturday (3pm) as they aim to get their pre-season campaign back on track.
