Ascot's Lee Boon in action against Reading Town.
ASCOT United finished off their Hellenic Premier Division campaign on a disappointing note on Saturday, losing 3-1 away to Reading Town.
The Yellamen are the first team in the league to reach the 40-game mark.
Jeff Lamb's side were 3-0 down before they mustered a reply after 68 minutes through Tom Nugent.
The result leaves them with 44 points in Lamb's first ever season in management.
Jamie Piercy struck for Reading Town in the 21st minute and that was enough to maintain the lead going into the break.
Five minutes into the second half, however, Ascot found themselves two goals down thanks to Ben Gladwin, and with a mountain to climb.
Piercy then grabbed his second of the game on the hour mark.
Phillip Nugent's 68th minute strike proved a mere consolation for the visitors against a strong Reading Town side.
