Dan Roberts


Eastbourne Borough 0, Slough Town 2

Warren Harris again found the net for the Rebels as they won 2-0 at Eastbourne Borough to stretch their unbeaten run to seven matches.

Harris fired the Rebels ahead in the 38th minute, tapping home from Dan Roberts' strike across goal for his fourth goal in five matches.

The visitors then added to their slender advantage in the 66th minute when Scott Davies played in Roberts and the young striker slipped the ball past Hadler.

The home side were reduced to 10 men when Nditi was shown a second yellow card in the 73rd minute and Slough held on to comfortably take the points back to Berkshire.

Afterwards joint manager Neil Baker tweeted: "A real solid away performance. Seven unbeaten now. Fans were brilliant away from home again. Hope you enjoyed your day.”

Slough move up to 11th off the back of today’s win, just a point outside the play-offs, ahead of next Saturday’s home game with Hampton & Richmond Borough


Sutton Athletic 1, Flackwell Heath 1 (FA Cup first qualifying round)

Flackwell Heath's FA Cup first qualifying round clash at Sutton Athletic went to a replay this afternoon after the sides played out a 1-1 draw.

The Heathens fell behind to a well worked goal from the home side in the 18th minute, but hit back in the 66th minute when Weekes swivelled and finished to draw them level.

The Reds had some late pressure and chances but weren't able to convert so the two teams will have to do it all again at Wilks Park to determine whose name is in the draw for the second qualifying round.

The Heathens will likely replay the tie this week.


Tuffley Rovers 3, Windsor FC 3

For the third game in succession Windsor conceded late goals to drop points, as Luke Brook-Smith's side were held to a 3-3 draw by Tuffley Rovers.

The Royalists were leading 3-1 heading into the final five minutes of normal time, but goals from Briscoe (85) and Langworthy (97) saw Tuffley hit back to snatch a share of the spoils.

Windsor took the lead through Ted Woodisse in the 16th minute but were pegged back by Beardsell's goal after 25 minutes. Luke Appleton restored the visitors lead from Ive's assist just before the hour mark and the points looked to have been wrapped up when Appleton netted his second from a corner kick with eight minutes to go.

But the side's inability to hold onto a lead returned to haunt them once again as Tuffley fought back for a point.

Windsor, 14th in the Hellenic Premier Division, are next scheduled to host Thame Rangers at home in the Floodlit Cup on Tuesday, September 17. 


Burnham 2, Tiverton Town 3 (FA Cup first qualifying round)

Burnham exited the FA Cup after a 3-2 defeat to Tiverton Town at The Gore this afternoon, despite twice taking the lead.

The Blues were in front after only two minutes but Tiverton didn't trail for long with River Allen levelling matters from the penalty spot after 11 minutes.

Burnham restored their advantage in the second half after a mistake at the back by Tiverton before Jared Lewington and Allen again turned the tie in Tiverton's favour with goals in the 75th and 80th minutes.

Burnham host Banbury Town Development in the Floodlit Cup this Tuesday.


Kidlington Development 2, Holyport 2

Holyport FC remain unbeaten but had to settle for a point at Kidlington Development this afternoon having led 2-1 at the interval.

Goals from Steven Deverall and Andy Forisky had put Derek Sweetman's side in the driving seat  but a scrappy second half finished with Kidlington forcing an equaliser in the 86th minute.

They sit ninth in Hellenic League Division 1 East after playing four matches. 

Port are set to host Wallingford Town in the Floodlit Cup on Tuesday


Wycombe Wanderers 3, Lincoln City 1

Wycombe Wanderers are top of League 1 this evening after Joe Jacobson scored twice from direct corners and once from a free-kick to claim an unusual hat-trick.

Gareth Ainsworth's men took the lead in the fifth minute through Jacobson's curling free-kick that left Vickers rooted to the spot.

The defender then doubled their advantage direct from a corner kick in the 36th minute before confirming the Chairboys' highest ever league position with a third goal, again direct from a corner, in the 75th minute.

Akinde responded with a goal for Lincoln City early in the second half.

The win was good enough to take Wycombe top of the league on goal difference from Coventry City. They're next in action at Gillingham on Saturday.
