SOUTH Bucks United extended their lead at the top in Division One of the East Berkshire League after a 3-2 win at Hounslow Wanderers on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

Hounslow opened a clear lead at The Memorial Ground thanks to goals from Kevin Alves and Tamim Amin, but South Bucks recovered with a hat-trick from Andrew Gonzalez – two goals from the penalty spot – to take the points.

South Bucks are now four points clear at the top of the table, but second-placed Burnham Village have four matches in hand on the leaders.

Hounslow remain in fifth place having missed the chance to climb into the top four.

Townmead drew further clear at the top in Division Two following their 1-1 draw at Stoke Poges Saints Reserves.

Sam Manton scored from the penalty spot for The Saints at the Bells Hill Recreation Ground before the visitors equalised and then had appeals for a penalty of their own turned down.
