ANOTHER TROPHY AND ANOTHER REPORT FROM OUR JUNIOR REPORTER.
It was a very even first half at the Madejski with half chances going begging for both sides.
The highlight of the half came when TJ powerfully met a corner with his head which looked like being the first goal until the Binfield keeper Nyamunga pulled off an astounding safe down to his left to keep it out.

The second half began with both teams attacking at pace with the impressive Kensley Maloney looking really dangerous on the right wing.
Again half chances came and went throughout the half until the 84th minute when goal machine TJ Bohane scored his 48th goal of a memorable season to break the deadlock.
A corner swung to the back post was met by the onrushing striker who buried it past Nyamunga .
The Robins understandably grew in confidence after this and in the 90th minute Sub Senussi forced Nyamunga into a mistake and rolled the ball in after a fumble.
It wasn’t over yet though and a poor back pass let in Senussi for his 2nd and the Robins 3rd in the 4th minute of added time.
The final whistle ended Binfields misery and the Ultras celebrated with their heroes.
A great night and the perfect end to a great season for the Robins.

Bracknell Town FC 2 v Highworth Town 0
The Robins lifted the Bluefin Sport Hellenic League Challenge Cup on Bank Holiday Monday at Abingdon United with a 2-0 win over Highworth Town.
A goalless first half that saw the Robins have two penalty appeals dismissed gave way to a second half double from Bracknell’s top scorers Adam Cornell and former Highworth striker TJ Bohane.
Cornell had the biggest shout for a penalty in the first half while Chris Grace was kept busy throughout a game that was far from one sided.
Minutes in to the second period it was Kensley Maloney who slotted in the Robins forward to open the scoring while Bohane scored to put the match and Bracknell Town out of reach on 56 minutes.
It is our second trophy of the season after over two decades without silverware and the possibility of a hat-trick with the Reading Senior Cup up for grabs.
Bracknell Town FC 5 v Headington Amateurs 1
Bracknell Town faced Headington Amateurs on the 20th April in the semi final of the Bluefin Sports Hellenic Cup at Larges Lane despite being drawn as the away team.
Bracknell Town won the toss and kicked off wearing their dark blue away kit.
It was a slow start for each side until a nicely placed ball was played through headingtons defence leaving Adam Cornell to expertly dink it over the onrushing keeper making it 1 nil to the Robins.
The first half was fairly even until the 45th minute when Bracknell Town got a free kick 35 yards out, leaving Terence Bohane to do what he does best with an unstoppable thunderbolt of a free kick to the top left corner, leaving the keeper with no chance.
A few minutes into 1st half stoppage time The Robins got a 3rd from a beautifully swung in cross by their impressive left back, John Gray, to find the head of the main man Adam Cornell who buried his header.
Going into the break Bracknell are sure to feel pleased as they lead three goals to nil.
It’s kick off in the second half with Headington Amateurs trying to get themselves back in the game.
In this half Headington Amateurs are certainly giving Bracknell’s defence a run around with long balls over the top, a few of which they nearly capitalised on.
It wasn’t until the 80th minute though that a 4th goal came, unsurprisingly it was Bracknell Town, who caught Headington Amateurs on the break as sub Ian Davies coolly slots it past the keeper into the bottom right of the goal.
Headington Amateurs 0-4 Bracknell Town.
Finally in the 87th minute Headington managed to score a consolation, surprisingly it was scored by their goalkeeper who was swapped out of goal with Headington’s no.10 just a few minutes earlier.
It wasn’t over yet though as Bracknell Towns no.10, Terence Bohane, rounds the keeper in the 90th minute leaving Bracknell Town getting to the final with a comprehensive win of five goals to one, leaving them with plenty of confidence for the final against Highworth on Monday the 1st of May.
Up the Robins!!

Bracknell Town Football Club founded in 1896 and now in 2016/17 we have began a new era with the biggest change in our clubs history. Larges Lane home of BTFC since the 1930’s has seen a major upgrade with the installation of the latest state-of-the-art 3g pitch, new clubhouse and changing facilities. In keeping with this total modernisation we have rebranded our clubs logo.
We have come a long way since the project started and all the efforts have been worthwhile. The 3G pitch is now fully approved and our teams from the Mens 1st Team, Ladies though to our youth teams have all had the opportunity to enjoy their new facility.
Work is still on going to complete the club house and we are moving rapidly in to Phase 2 of the development. If you have not had the chance to see our progress in person, please pop down to The Lane. Keep an eye out for the fixtures.
