WOKINGHAM and Emmbrook can finish no higher than 11th in the Hellenic League’s Division One East, but they still have plenty to look forward to in the remaining weeks of the season, writes Dave Wright.
The Sumas dished out a 9-0 hiding to pointless Wantage Town Reserves on Bank Holiday Monday and will be aiming to complete their league fixtures with another three points when Chalfont Wasps come to Lowther Road this Saturday (3pm ko).
However, it is their game the following week, April 29, that could help see Wokingham finish the campaign on a real high.
It is the day they face Bracknell Town in the semi-finals of the Reading Invitation Senior Cup.
Manager Clive McNelly said: “I told my players that our season is far from over. This game with Bracknell in two weeks’ time is massive for us.
“We played well on Monday, doing the right things and we now need to continue to do them.
“We need to keep things going against Chalfont this week so we will be in a confident mood when we go into the big one.”
Sumas are currently third from bottom, but will leapfrog Rayners Lane on goal difference if they defeat sixth-placed Wasps.
Wokingham believe their Lowther Road pitch will suit them far better than it will Bracknell.
“It could be a great leveller and put us in with a chance of pulling off a shock,” commented Mark Ashwell, the club’s president.
