FC BRACKNELL Under 15s got back to winning ways with a 3-1 cup win over Reading YMCA.

After a slow start, they went ahead through Taylor Hornbrook’s cross-cum-shot.

It did not take Reading long to equalise and they had a good opportunity to take the lead when they were awarded a penalty, but it was saved by Josh Barefoot.

FCB, having upped the tempo, regained the lead in the second half with a fine strike from Olly Clarke and shortly afterwards new signing Luke Wakatana latched onto a through ball from Ben Clarke and hammered it into the top corner from the edge of the area.

Jo Millon's strong performance earned him the man-of-the-match award.

Injury-hit U15s Youth exited the EBFA League Cup after being thumped 11-0 by Division Two side Burghfield CSA Raptors and they would have lost even heavier had it not been for keeper Jack Leigh making a number of good saves.

Callum Lacey scored two second-half goals to earn FCB U16s a 2-0 cup win at home to Binfield Titans.

For the second week running, U14s Colts were beaten 3-1, this time at the hands of Arborfield Aces.

Defender Jack Partridge was the pick of the team, while Vincent Nyame netted a late consolation goal.

The U14 Colts also found their cup rivals too strong for them, with Caversham Trent Blues from a division above winning 8-0. FCB's man-of-the-match was Hali Antoni.

FCB U13s overcame a sticky start, during which keeper Riley Morgan made some excellent stops, to beat Charvil 7-0.

Man-of-the-match Callum Cobb scored twice, including a lob from outside the area, while there was also a brace for Lewis Trevisani with Krissy Oppong, Logan Biggers and Louie Colwell adding one apiece.

Also at U13s level, FCB Colts overturned a one-goal half-time deficit to win 4-2 at Windsor. Amine Chihoua equalised before player-of-the-match Sammy Lynch netted a hat-trick.

The U12 Youth side won 3-1 away to Wargrave Wolves Reds in their league's plate competition with goals from Charlee Martin (2) and Dan Pring, while two brilliant saves secured the man-of-the-match award for James Thorne.

But the U12 Colts went out of the competition, going down 4-3 to Eversley & California Cobras.

However, they deserve credit as they were a player short and up against a team from a higher division. Debutant Veer Bains, Tyler Williams and Vincent McBride Brooke were on target with Jamie Brant voted their top player.

A WONDERFUL Leon Proietti hat-trick inspired Ascot United Under 13 Royals to a resounding 10-1 demolition of Shinfield Rangers in their cup clash.

Jonathan Makepeace and William Walder both bagged braces with the other Ascot goals coming from Micah Prior, Arvind Mahil and Seb Fernandez.

Ascot United U13 Racing went down 3-0 to Hawley Colts, while Rhys Hughes netted for the U18 Racing side in their 5-1 defeat to Teddington Athletic Tigers.

Will Smith was the Ascot man-of-the-match.

Josh Smith's goal was not enough for the U16 Youth as they went down 2-1 to Ashford Town, but the U15 Royals advanced in the cup following a 4-1 penalty shoot-out win against AFC Charvil.

Dan Fullers and Charlie Reuby were on target during the 2-2 draw which preceded the spot-kicks.

The U15 Aces slipped to a 2-1 reverse against Eversley & California Park Rangers, but a Will Sherman brace and goals from Sam Whitehead, Hugo South and Freddie Fenton fired the U14 Youth to a convincing 5-0 rout of Ashstead Colts Wanderers U14.

Ascot U14 Raiders lost 4-2 on penalties to Reading Rangers following a 3-3 draw, while the U14 Sapphires went down 4-0 to Goldsworth Park Rangers Diamonds.

The U12 Sapphires lost 2-1 to Maidenhead.

BRACKNELL Athletic Under 14s crushed AFC Reading Typhoons 7-1 in their League Cup clash.

Man-of-the-match Nathan Spoiala put his side in front and went on to score a brilliant hat-trick on debut, with Athletic's other goals coming from Ashley Matambanadzo (2), Bobbi Emery and Jamie Weaver.

Goalkeeper Ryan North also saved a penalty for Bracknell.

Tom Sussex starred for the U15 Youth as they lost 5-1, while Lewis Lancaster and Alex Vincent were the stand-out performers as the U16 Bombers were knocked out of the League Cup at the first hurdle by Finchampstead Rhinos.

HARTS of Bracknell Under 18 Devils secured a 3-1 win against Spencers Wood Cyclones, man-of-the-match Alfie Hill, Owen Gigg and Harvey Bird on the scoresheet.

Goalkeeper Joe Gaffney put in a fine display for Harts of Bracknell Stags, but his side still went down 5-1 to Laurel Park Tornadoes despite Agustin Mancini getting on the scoresheet.

Alfie Mann was the stand-out performer for the Razors as Jayden Knight, Sid Raven and Riley Rose all netted against Darby Green & Potley Strikers.
