Yesterday saw our men’s development side win the Berkshire junior trophy
The game started as it would go on, at a furious pace. The first chance came just two minutes in, a quick break from Berks County with striker finding space in behind the Wraysbury back line thankful for Wraysbury to only put the ball wide. Wraysbury hit back and went ahead after a Matt Lewis picked the ball up in the right back position then played a pall through ball into the middle where Jack Deabill found space inside the box and his first time shot was saved well at his near post by the Berks county keeper but was unable to keep hold of it where a goalmouth scrabble took place where full back Matt Lewis continued his run into the box managed to scrabble the ball home.
Wraysbury 1-0 Berks County
Berks county reacted well to going a goal town and piled on the pressure causing Wraysbury problems. Berks county managed to equalise when a cross from the left side came in and young Keeper Jack Ettridge came out to punch the cross away but was adjudged to have fouled the Berks county striker and the referee awarded a penalty which was tucked away to Jack Ettridge’s right hand side. Wraysbury 1-1 Berks County
Nick Baker then produced a moment of brilliance as he picked up the ball just inside the County half, took the ball past two Berks county players and then hitting the ball into the top left hand corner to regain the lead from Wraysbury. Wraysbury 2–1 Berks County
