4.) Pritchard leaves it late as Maidenhead United strike down Tranmere Rovers

Harry Pritchard stroked home a late winner as Maidenhead United deservedly overcame pre-season title favourites Tranmere Rovers at York Road this evening.

Burnham manager Mark Betts admitted he was considering his future at the club after watching his side capitulate in the final 20 minutes against 10-man Binfield.

2.) In pictures: Gravity Grand Prix 2017

A Donald Trump effigy, Back to the Future’s Delorean time machine and a giant pram whizzed down Church Road and Spring Lane on Sunday for the 11th annual Gravity Grand Prix.

The event, organised by the Kaffirs of Cookham Dean, sees racers rolling down the racecourse as fast as possible in their homemade go-karts.

1.) Maidenhead United miss chances as Halifax Town seal all three points at The Shay

Maidenhead United failed to get the rub of the green, despite netting twice in the final 20 minutes, as they went down to defeat at Halifax Town.

Alan Devonshire’s men saw plenty of the ball and created their own share of chances but the game was taken away from them by two goals in 10 minutes after the interval.
