FC Bracknell Under 14s produced a gallant performance, but it was not enough to prevent them from losing 3-1 to Caversham Trents in the East Berks Football Alliance U14s Cup final at Bracknell Town on Saturday.

They had beaten their rivals twice in the league, but Trents proved just too good for them on this occasion.

Oliver Clarke gave FCB a 10th-minute lead, but within two minutes Caversham had equalised through Haris Mahmood and goals from Thomas Pasmore in the 23rd minute and Robbie White, three minutes later, put them ahead before half-time.

Trents went on to miss a number of other chances to increase their advantage.

Midfielder Aaron Montague was named their man-of-the- match, with FCB giving their vote to Archie Johnstone.

In another U7s friendly, FCB took on Binfield Heat and put together some slick passing moves which led to goals for Frankie Streak-Holzman, Aiden Ncube and Ethan, with Ncube earning the parents' best player vote.

FCB U7s Blues and U8s Whites and Blues all have cup finals to look forward to this coming weekend.
