Like many a year, the ADL flag flying in the Berks and Bucks Intermediate Cup is down to a bare number after just round two after some frustrating results. APBS had a good run last season and are in the hat for the 3rd Round Draw just. After leading MK side AFC Santander 1-0 through Sam Robertson and missing chances they were pegged back with seven minutes left. Both teams ended up with ten men before a dresser penalty shootout. APBS keeper Gary Wiltshire the hero saving the last spot-kick to send his side through.
Elmhurst are also through though they have faced to ADL sides so far, nevertheless, a 4-1 win at Bedgrove Utd sealed their place in the next round. Akeel Khan with a hat-trick.
Wendover were unlucky as they went out on penalties to MK Wanderers after a 4-4 draw. Stokenchurch knocked out Prestwood 2-1. Ludgershall put on a good performance against AVD Bedgrove Dynamos going down 5-3. Tring Corries are out of the Herts County Cup losing 5-1 to Croxley Community Reserves.
Great Missenden had a massive result in the Wycombe Junior Cup beating Holmer Green U25’s in a hard-fought contest. Callum Humphreys scoring the winner in the 89th minute, the other goals came from Karl Lewis and Mitch Cox. Heroics in goal from Simon Mines earned him man of the match.
Wingrave also had a big win in the Oving Village Cup stunning Steeple Claydon 6-1. Four second-half goals making it a more resounding victory.
Back in League Action and there were big results in all three Divisions.

Aylesbury Raiders kept a rare clean sheet to maintain their unbeaten start with a 1-0 away win at FC Titans, Dan O’Sullivan with the only goal.

AWFC went down 2-1 to Oving, Harry Gollins with a double.
In Division Two all power has broken loose with two unbeaten sides losing.
