WOODLEY United advanced in the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup with a 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory following a 2-2 draw at Beaconsfield Town on Monday.

The visitors started brightly, although it took until eight minutes before the break for them to go in front.

Jaydyn Englefield was brought down in the penalty area, but dusted himself off to get up and score the resultant spot kick.

However, Beaconsfield improved after the break and levelled when Michael Peacock nodded in from a corner, only for Woodley to go back in front 60 seconds later when Toby Briggs collected Englefield's through ball and lofted the ball into the goal.

Beaconsfield forced a shoot-out with seven minutes to go, though, Kofi Lockhart-Adams smashing home to give his side a lifeline.

Beaconsfield took the lead in the shoot-out after the opening round, scoring before Jake White's effort was tipped onto the right post.

Beaconsfield doubled their lead before Ashley Ledger netted, but United's Alex Reed then pulled off a great save from Charlie Kuehn, allowing Joe Barley to level.

Reed then kept out Lockhart-Adams diving to his left and Englefield put the visitors 3-2 up.

The home side scored their fifth, but substitute Liam Wilson held his nerve to send the Kestrels through to the quarter finals, where they will visit Thatcham.

Woodley had previously lost 1-0 at Tuffley Rovers in the Premier Division on Saturday, Shayne Bradley's 16th-minute effort proving decisive.

Woodley United visit Windsor on Saturday (3pm) before hosting Burnham next Monday (7.45pm).

  • CRAIG Masterson and Ryan Alexander netted for AFC Aldermaston, but they lost 5-2 at Penn & Tylers Green in Division One East on Saturday.

The Atom Men host Sandhurst Town this Saturday (3pm).
