Bicknell’s late goal secures United's place

ONCE again the weather decimated the league fixtures with just eight matches taking place across all divisions.

ONCE again the weather decimated the league fixtures with just eight matches taking place across all divisions.

In the Senior Division KIDMORE END narrowly lost out 2-1 away to league leaders DEE ROAD RANGERS.

Meanwhile in Division 4 East HENLEY YMCA UNITED closed the gap on the league leaders to four points as they beat promotion rivals KINGS UNITED 3-0 at home.

The visitors dominated possession early on but as Henley came into the game Tom Essam won a tackle on the half-way line to play Hugh Barklem in who turned his defender before shooting past the keeper into the bottom corner.

Barklem made it 2-0 when he beat several defenders before firing home. Rhys York headed home his second goal in as many games to complete the scoreline.



SC UNITED secured their place in the semi-final of the Industrial Cup after beating 116 EXILES 2-1 at Bishopswood.

United took the lead after 15 minutes when striker Martin Shenton’s right wing cross was headed across the keeper by midfielder Martin Best.

The hosts were denied a second goal when Danny Jakubiszyn appeared to curl the ball over the line but the referee didn’t give it as the keeper scooped the ball away.

Shortly before half-time Jakubiszyn headed beyond the Exiles keeper only for the goal to be disallowed for a push in the build-up.

With 20 minutes of the match remaining the Exiles equalised when their striker volleyed home a right wing cross.

A late rally by United led to a Kieren Chard free kick rebound off the crossbar into the path of Jakubiszyn whose volley was acrobatically saved by the Exiles keeper only for the rebound to be tapped in by left back Tim Bicknell.

In the semi-final SC United will face either cup holders AFC Burghfield or Emmbrook Inn whose quarter-final was postponed.
