There were victories for both the Ladies and Men's First Teams on a mixed weekend of results across the age groups.

The Men’s First Team were back at the Rec again on Saturday afternoon, hosting Wraysbury in TVPL Premier Division. Goals from Harvey Beales and Josh Howell secured all three points in a comfortable 2-0 victory.

The Men’s Reserves made the journey to Farnham Park on Saturday afternoon to take on SB Phoenix Reserves in TVPL Division Two. Unfortunately it wasn’t our day, finding ourselves behind early on as we went on to suffer a 5-0 defeat.

At CSA on Saturday afternoon, the Men’s Saturday A’s hosted Reading City Lions in TVPL Division Four. Goals from Mattie Cook and Jack Sowden either side of a goal for our visitors put us ahead. Just before half-time Ben Corbett picked the ball up under pressure, he wanted to break free and beat his man in a flash, before hitting a left-footed shot that went in like a kind of magic. That didn’t stop us now though, as we knew the show must go on after the break and we took complete control in the second-half. Two more goals from Mattie Cook to complete his hat-trick and a Will May strike saw us run out 6-1 winners.

On Sunday afternoon The Ladies First Team were in TVCWFL Plate action, facing Wycombe Saints at CSA.
