Aston Clinton will get the chances to win the only trophy that has eluded them in local football after making it to the final of the Berks and Bucks Intermediate Cup.

Aston’s fantastic win over holders South Reading in the quarter-finals set up a semi-final date with Bracknell Town, who have just been relegated from the Hellenic Premier Division.

Aston have beaten some very strong opposition during this seasons competition, namely Buckingham Town, Stony Stratford and Risborough Rangers but this would be their toughest test yet.

Aston produced a fantastic performance and scored an early goal through Sam Ward and crucially Neil Roberts’ men doubled the lead before the break through Matt Tallyn.

Bracknell came back at Aston in the second half, but the defence stood firm and keeper Ashley Jenkins pulled off a great save to keep the scoreline blank. Roberts and his charges team held on to win 2-0 thanks to great team performance and man of the match display from Peter Weirich.

The club will now go in search of the only silverware on a local level that has eluded them in their history when they face rivals Pitstone and Ivinghoe in an all-SSMFL final at Binfield on March 23.

The club will be running a supporters coach from Aston Football Club, £10 per passenger, first come first served. For more details call Vanessa Cozens on 01296 630913.
