SILCHESTER Village went to the top of the Basingstoke and District Saturday League Division One after a 5-1 win over visiting AFC Berg.

However, the new leaders did not have all their own way as Berg took the lead from Ashley Elward, but then Paul Crow sent off for bringing down Kye Theodore when clear on goal in the seven minute.

Three minutes later, Silchester led after goals from Theodore and Jack Nisbett.

Nisbett scored again to make it 3-1 at the break and then Jason Graham and a Theodore penalty completed the scoring.

Hook and Twentyten had a 1-1 draw. Twentyten shaded the first half 1-0 thanks to Rich Gary.

In the 70th minute, Hook levelled as good play by Dan Mellors and Tom Lucas led to Dan Mauridian scoring.

Herriard Sports are suffering with injury problems and could only raise ten men for their away game at Overton United A and drew 4-4.

After going two goals down from Liam Randall and Paul Etheridge, but Sam Weber and Matt Goodman levelled things by the break.

Ten men Herriard moved ahead in the 65th minute from Weber.

Overton came back to level to 3-3 through Siyani Thomas, but again Herriard replied with 10 minutes left from Chris Dobbie.

The three points looked in the bag until in the last minute Michael Burry netted the equaliser.

It was a keenly fought local derby between Tadley Calleva A and Aldermaston Reserves that ended in a 2-2 draw.

Aldermaston took the lead in the seventh minute from Sid Gbla and Alex Dumbuya added a penalty.

Sub Fred Ball and Simon Penfold scored after the break for Tadley.

After three matches it is Overton United B who top the Division Two table following their 5-3 win against Oakridge.

Overton goals came from goalkeeper Mindy Kuodys with a penalty, Andy Tottman (2) Paul Roffey and Alex Spencer

Oakridge's scorers were Sam Trodd and Noel Pratchell.

It was a 0-0 draw between Twentyten Reserves and Renegades. Both defences were sound throughout with a shot on goal a rare event.

The closest for Twentyten came early on when Matt Osborne put Joe Richards through on goal and his effort was cleared off the line.

Ian Pickett was in the Twentyten goal this week and pulled off a fine save, but they should have won the game, but Austin Feighery's spot kick was saved.

It was also a goalless draw at Chineham where North Warnborough visited.

Borough had 80 per cent of the play, said Manager Trevor Craig. His son Bailey Craig and Liam Coppi forced good saves as they pressed but their main striker Banica Oprea was off form this week and failed to find the target. Even when he was brought down in the box and won a penalty, he hit it straight at the goalkeeper.

Another great chance for the points came near the end when Liam Cook broke clear and was unable to beat the keeper in a one on one.

AFC Aldermaston A, who had to cancel their opening game of the season, got off this week with a 5-4 win against AFC Berg Reserves.

Their goals came from Tommy James (2) Vinny Kennedy, Jayce Torrie and Jon Lavender.

Berg's four goals came from Karl Holborough, Dan Trussler, James Brown and Steve D’eath.
