More news, no ads


It was Newbury's fifth draw of the season, but they still remain unbeaten

HANNAH Jones was on target for Newbury & Thatcham Ladies first team – but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Marlow 2nd.

It’s the fifth time in seven games that Newbury have drawn in the Trysport 3 Counties Premier 1 and as a result, they’re fifth in the table – despite not yet losing a game.

South Berkshire 2nd 3-3 Newbury & Thatcham 2nd

Newbury's 2nd XI recorded their second successive draw in Division 1 at South Berkshire.

The visitors were denied a goal from a penalty flick, but moments later Emily Bettles scored her first goal of the game.

However, South Berks responded with two goals in quick succession to lead at half-time.

Bettles levelled the score after the break after receiving the ball from Izzy Mitchell, but South Berks continued to press with a series of attacks, one of which they converted to go 3-2 ahead.

With one minute until full-time Mary Cavanagh drove the ball down the right and was awarded a free hit.

From there, Bettles received the ball before finding Jasmine MacDonald, who fired home to snatch a dramatic equaliser.

Newbury & Thatcham 5th 1-1 Aylesbury 4th
