The Yellamen have reached the highest league position in the club’s history and they were more than a match for the likely winners of the title at the weekend.

It took until the 70th minute for the deadlock to be broken as Ben McCready converted a penalty to put Wantage ahead.

Ascot levelled in the 81st minute when Rob Saunders calmly slotted home after a fine team move.

But Wantage grabbed the three points they needed minutes later when Andy Younie fired home.

Finchampstead FC made it to the final of the Reading Senior Cup with a 4-2 victory on penalties over Henley Town. A Liam Woozley opener for Finchampstead was cancelled out by Henley’s Louis Howell as the semi-final tie finished 1-1 after 90 minutes.

Extra-time failed to separate the sides but James Pople, Harry Swabey, Richard Kell and Woozley all struck for Finch in the shootout to set up a final against either Wokingham & Emmbrook or Bracknell Town at the Madejski Stadium.

Elsewhere, in the Hellenic Premier Division, Binfield's recent fine form of eight games without a loss was ended in emphatic fashion with a 5-0 defeat at Shrivenham.

It was the Moles’ final league outing of the season and they were no match for their hosts as Josh Fowler (4) and Sam Collier grabbed the goals to condemn Binfield to defeat.

Bracknell Town were not in action last weekend as their pitch fell victim to the weather and forced their league clash against Oxford City Nomads to be postponed.

They are due to host Ardley United at Larges Lane tonight (Monday, 7.45pm ko).

It was also a good day for Wokingham & Emmbrook on Saturday as they ran out 6-0 winners against Burnham Reserves at Lowther Road.

A Luke Scope brace plus further goals from Dan Collier, Jake Butler, George Dance and Sam Bateman helped Sumas secure a top-three finish in Hellenic Division One East.

Meanwhile, Eversley & California secured promotion from the Combined Counties Division One with an 11-2 win at Sandhurst Town.
