READING City produced a disappointing display as they were hammered 5-1 at home by Easington Sports in their Premier Division clash on Saturday, writes Richard Ashton.

In front of a bumper crowd of 172 on non-league day, the Citizens fell behind after just two minutes as Jack Dunmall found the back of the net.

The second came shortly after as Josh Rose's header from a corner went goalwards, Alfie Grant unable to divert it off target with his own head.

Dunmall claimed his second and Easington's fourth two minutes later, and a Piers Walton effort ensured the visitors led 4-0 at half-time.

City hit back early in the second half as Adam Cashin-Murray stroked home a penalty after Grant was felled in the area, but any hopes of a comeback were all but extinguished 30 minutes from time when Dan Davies was sent off for a second bookable offence.

And Easington added a further gloss to the scoreline five minutes from time when Dunmall completed his hat-trick.

Disappointed City manager Simon Johnson tweeted: "Not at the races today. Time for everyone to self access, myself and the management team included. Win together, lose together."

Reading City are at home to Ardley United in the Bluefin Sports Challenge Cup this coming Saturday (3pm), before welcoming Windsor to the Rivermoor Stadium on Monday night (7.45pm).

Woodley United crashed out of the Banbury Litho Floodlit Cup following a 3-0 defeat at Chalvey Sports on Tuesday night.

Matt Edwards put the home side in front just before the half-hour mark, Woodley unable to clear a corner.

The Kestrels continued to have the better of the play for the majority of the game, but they suffered a huge blow when Ryan Hazell finished a fine move to make it 2-0 six minutes from time.

And Chalvey ensured there would be no comeback when Michael Gaut added a third in the final minute of normal time.

Woodley United are without a game this week, returning to action at Chalfont Wasps in the Bluefin Sports Supplementary Cup on Saturday, September 26.

AFC Aldermaston, who did not have a fixture last weekend, return to Division One East action at Kidlington Development on Tuesday (7.45pm).
