Reading are aiming to complete the Berks-Bucks Cup double after the Academy squeezed past Flackwell Heath in Wednesday night's semi-final.

Noel Hunt's men beat Burnham in the semi-final last month and travelled to Wilks Park looking to go one step further than last year's final four exit at the hands of Marlow.

The Combined Counties Prem Division North hosts took a second half lead through Mark Nisbet, but John Clarke levelled for the Royals with 15 minutes remaining.

Heading straight to spot kicks, Charlie Wellens hit the woodwork with his first attempt but Clarke, Sam Paul, Basil Tuma and Adrian Akande all converted while goalkeeper Harvey Collins saved two to earn victory.

Collins, who was out for nearly a year battling sepsis under previous boss Paul Ince, has made two first-team squads but is yet to make his debut.

Marlow or MK Dons Under-23s await in the final at Slough Town's Arbour Park.

Reading Women Under-23s won their Senior Cup with a win over MK Dons last month.
