IVER Heath have become the first club from the East Berkshire League to reach the semi-final of the Berks & Bucks Intermediate Cup this season, writes Rob Stevens.

Old Windsor have been the dominant force in the Premier Division with a 100 per-cent record after nine matches, but their league rivals edged them out in a thrilling cup match at the Recreation Ground.

The home team took the lead with a penalty kick from Harry Farnan, but Paolo Cicero equalised for Iver when he netted from the spot before the break.

A goal from Gary Ashton put the visitors ahead in the second half before Farnan levelled for Old Windsor but Callum Hughes sent his side through with a headed goal in time added on.
