Burghfield and Maidenhead Town will contest the final of the 2023/24 Berks & Bucks FA Charles Twelftree Trophy after beating Thames Valley Premier League rivals in the semi-finals.

Burghfield earned their final spot, beating title chasing Windsor & Eton 1-0 at Stag Meadow in front of a crowd of over 400. At the start of the season it was the Fielders who featured in the Royalists first competitive game at home – a 0-0 draw in front of a crowd of over a 1,000.

The only goal of the game came from Jordan Cox on the 39th minute while both sides were reduced to 10-men on the hour with Burghfield goalkeeper Ben Lallament sent off. For Windsor it was Conor Alisson who was dismissed.
