READING men, fresh from a week off, return to Premier Division action this Saturday (6.30pm) when East Grinstead are the visitors to Sonning Lane, writes Dave Wright.

Blues are still looking for their first win of the season following five defeats and two draws, while East Grinstead sit sixth in the table with two wins and a draw after seven games.

Reading 2nds extended their unbeaten record in MBBO Regional One to six games with a 2-0 at Oxford Hawks 2nds thanks to goals from Sam Armitage and Adam Price.

Blues top the table on 16 points, two ahead of fellow unbeaten side Amersham & Chalfont, who will be the visitors to Sonning Lane this Saturday.

In the same division, Reading 3rds trounced pointless Aylesbury 8-1 with four goals being netted by Harry Benjamin and the rout being completed by Jarrod Casey, Toby Robinson, Peter Roseff and Ted Warren.

In total contrast to the men's 1sts, Reading Women have been in good form, losing only once in five games.

They are second in Division One South, three points behind Wimbledon, who boast the only 100 per cent record.

This coming Saturday (4.30pm), they are home to fifth-placed Sevenoaks.

Reading 2nds lost 3-2 at unbeaten Witney to remain 10th in the South Clubs Division One placings ahead of their trip this weekend to unbeaten Tulse Hill and Dulwich.

Nick Leach netted four times as Sonning trounced Milton Keynes 2nds 9-1 in MBBO Regional Two, the other goals coming from Ian Gallagher (2), James Manser (2) and Noel Plant.

Their fifth win in six games lifts them to the top of the table above South Berkshire, who slumped to a surprise 4-0 home defeat at the hands of Reading 4ths.

This coming Saturday, Sonning are away to Marlow 2nds (1.30pm push-back).

In MBBO Division One, Sonning 2nds drew 3-3 with fellow top-four side Henley 2nds thanks to a Harvey Richardson brace and a goal from Matt Poulton.

Sonning Ladies stay third in the South Clubs League Division 3a following a 3-3 draw away to West Hampstead.
