BBFA v Middlesex FA - 1

Berks and Bucks U18 Squad into FA County Youth Cup Quarter Finals

The U18 Representative Squad have reached the FA County Youth Cup Quarter Finals after a brilliant second half performance away at Cambridgeshire...

A close game for the first 45 minutes, Cambridgeshire had their chances but found themselves denied by Berks & Bucks debutant goalkeeper Matteo Giacobbe and some resolute defending. This turned around after half time! Adam Forder scored twice, a tap in after 52 minutes then adding a second in the 65th minute with a fierce drive from the edge of the box. Berks & Bucks dominated from then on, with Junior Smith scoring the 3rd from the penalty spot in the 80th minute and Jeevan Panesar finishing the game in the 89th minute, cutting in off the wing and whipping a ball into the top right hand corner.

Team Manager Aaron O’Brien said “I couldn’t be prouder of the boys, they were unplayable in the second half. It’s a great achievement to reach the Quarter Finals, the boys deserve all their success, and we can’t wait for the next challenge.”

The Quarter Final will be against Liverpool FA on Sunday 28th January and will be played at Slough Town FC, Arbour Park, Slough, with a 1pm kick-off.
