Knox and Dillon on target
Published 10/12/12

WOODCOTE/STOKE ROW ran out 3-2 winners at home to local rivals ROTHERFIELD UNITED in the John Dell Senior Division.

The win lifted Woodcote/Stoke Row to fourth in the table while Rotherfield remain firmly rooted at the foot having lost all nine of their league matches. Rotherfield began well, playing some neat football but Woodcote soon began to create chances and both Paul Knox and Andy Bullett brought good saves out of the Rotherfield keeper.

First blood went to the visitors, who on 22 minutes exploited a flat defence for Ricky Sidhu to beat Mark Pearson from close range.

The lead was short-lived, Knox scoring with a strike from distance on 29 minutes.

Jake Dillon gave Woodcote the lead on 34 minutes with a delicate chip from a narrow angle.

Woodcote dominated the rest of the half and went close to increasing their lead with both Kool Koryapoe and Andy Bullett being thwarted by good saves.

The second half opened in bizarre fashion with a Rotherfield defender scoring an own goal from an innocuous cross by Dillon, to make the score 3-1.

Woodcote created and spurned a number of chances, and with Rotherfield battling to the end, it was no surprise when they closed the gap with a second goal for Sidhu after 85 minutes leaving Woodcote to hold out anxiously to the end to claim all three points.

WOODCOTE/STOKE ROW RESERVES are still looking for their first Division 1 win of the season after they slipped to their sixth consecutive defeat of the season when they went down 2-1 at BERKSHIRE UNITED. Jamie Burtenshaw netted the visitors’ goal after 70 minutes.

READING YMCA ROCKETS leapfrogged WARGRAVE in the table as they came out on top in a nine-goal thriller at the Recreation Ground.

GORING UNITED RESERVES moved up to fourth place in Division 2 thanks to a 5-2 home victory over ROYAL ALBION.

John Helas, Jonathan Nicholas and Adam Pickford were all on target for the hosts in the first half. Nicholas added his second and Goring’s fourth before James Mortlock wrapped up the scoring for the hosts.

Goals from Wayne Bletchley and Ryan McGill were not enough for SONNING A as they went down to a 5-2 defeat away to AFC CORINTHIANS RESERVES in Division 3.

Division 1 league leaders SONNING crashed out of the Berks and Bucks Junior Cup away to Division 2 side WOKINGHAM AND EMMBROOK A.

The match was level at 5-5 after 90 minutes with the hosts eventually running out 9-7 winners.
