The Briefing: A weekend round-up looking beyond the scores at all the bits you might have missed. From Hungerford Town’s advancement in the FA Cup to the women’s teams hitting ten goals each.

Sean Moore’s incredible Hungerford Town celebration

Berkshire football watchers will be well aware of Sean Moore’s ability to surprise. Whether it’s brilliant goals or donning the gloves when required.

But I don’t think anyone was quite prepared for this goal celebration as he scored for Hungerford Town. I can’t describe it. Just watch..

Reading City the lowest ranked side left in the FA Cup

I’m always a little uneasy with the idea of shouting about ‘the lowest ranked side left in the FA Cup‘. I don’t know if it’s a little demeaning to the club in question.

I probably need to get over that idea quickly though. Most people look at it as a hugely positive thing – a team outperforming their level. And at the moment the team with that moniker is none other than our own Reading City.

The Cityzens are in the hat for the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round after a 1-1 draw at The Rivermoor against Winchester City.

Winchester are two division’s higher than Reading so it’s a very creditable result and they’ll do it all again on Tuesday evening for the right to host Vanarama National League South Maidenhead Maidstone United.

A tens afternoon

Two Berkshire women’s sides scored 10 goals over the weekend as S4K Ladies beat Stonesfield West Oxfordshire 10-3 in the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League and Finchampstead knocked Harwell & Hendred Youth out of the Berks & Bucks County Cup by a score of 10 goals to nil.

For S4K it was Megan Cox with four, Natalie Beeches and Claudia Periquito with two each and one apiece for Berenice Grimshaw and Joanna Liddell.

Slough Town almost joined the party but they could ‘only’ muster the nine goals away to Carterton in a 9-1 win.

If we’re being loose with the requirements for this section its worth adding Wokingham & Emmbrook’s 5-5 draw at home to Goring United Reserves in the TVCWFL. Genevieve Richards with a hat trick and Lauren Evans with two for the Sumas.

Maidenhead Town break goalscoring record

A weekend taken over by cup action saw Maidenhead Town record their highest ever win in the Berkshire Trophy Centre Senior Cup.

The Bisham Abbey based side won 13-0 against Hurst to advance with four goals for Duarte Surpanu and hat tricks for Sam Angel and Joe Park while there were also goals for Ethan Lowe, Ashley Lamb and Harry Combe.

The other big score in the competition saw AFC Winkfield beat Reading City u23s 7-1.

Why let your wedding get in the way of your FA Cup fix?

Ascot United’s FA Vase winning captain Daniel Bailey missed the Yellas FA Cup Second Qualifying Round defeat on Friday night for the small matter of his own wedding.

But it appears that didn’t stop him making the most of FA Cup weekend with a trip to Mousehole in Cornwall on Saturday. Unfortunately for him the home side lost 5-0 but we hope he and his new wife had a brilliant trip.
