FC FERNHILL moved another step closer to retaining their Premier Division title with a 6-1 demolition of bottom side Golden Farmer Reserves.

Farmer gave a good account of themselves initially, but were undone with Ben Knight’s excellent volleyed finish on the stretch giving Fernhill the lead on 30 minutes before Elliott Rushforth’s exquisite top-corner finish doubled their lead.

Fernhill went in 3-0 up at the break before Stu Kent pulled one back for Farmer just after the restart, and for a while the hosts pressed to further reduce the deficit. Class told in the end, though, as a couple of Charlie Evanson specials and a further Knight goal sealed the victory.

Fernhill now need just three wins from their remaining seven games to seal the championship.

Crowthorne Inn stay second after their 5-0 win over Panthers, where a Carl Barrie brace and goals from Ryan Cooper, Taylor Elliott-Money and Marcus Simonds did the damage.

Finchampstead Athletic are up to third with a 3-0 home win against FC Meta, and WAB picked up all three points as two Tom Smith goals helped them to a 2-1 win at Morale Madrid.

Athletico Forest also collected maximum points beating Raglan 2-1 at home, Rhys Sherry and Abderrazzak Touni with Forest's goals, Matt Davis replying.

Finchampstead Athletic Reserves head Division One after their 3-1 win at home to Athletico Ascot, but AFC Crowthorne Stiffs are hot on their heels winning 3-0 at Panthers Reserves where Mitch Wheaton, John Mulholland and Jason Ellary all found the target.

Finch are three points clear, but Crows have a great opportunity to overhaul them with four games in hand.

Bracknell Cavaliers stay top of Division Three after a Billy Penton brace and strikes from Jack Hanley and Sam Cooper helped them to a 4-0 win at home to Hope & Anchor, but Bearwood Wanderers are only three points behind with a game in hand after they won 4-2 at Silver Birch A, Alex Dinnage and Steve Farrant scoring for Birch.

In Division Four, Crownwood Dukes have all but sealed the title after their 11-0 rout of Bracknell Titans, Jonathan Beecham grabbing an impressive five goals for Dukes, plus a brace each from Aaron Burch, Luke Newstead and Alex Cookson.

FC Harmanswater still have one game to play and could catch them on points, but they will need a massive swing in goal difference to do so, and for Dukes to lose their last three games.

Harmanswater goalscorers were Jack Buckland-Roll with two, Simon Miles, Oliver Birch, Matt Rimmer, Sean Randall and Justin Horton as they won 7-0 at AFC Crowthorne Old Boys.

Bracknell Athletic Reserves won 3-2 at Silver Birch and had Jack Cozzi, Tony Gilbert and Ollie Lane to thank for the win, while Jake Keohane and Matt Scrace replied for Birch.
