CHALVEY Sports have reached the Slough Town Senior Cup final this season after a 4-0 win against Old Windsor on Saturday.

Both Jason Marney and Aydn Coomber scored either side of the break in the semi-final tie at Arbour Park.

The Stabmonks can now look forward to final against either Delaford or Langley, currently first and second in the East Berkshire Premier Division, in the final later this season.

Chalvey manager Merv Lloyd told the Observer: “I was a bit worried going in because it could have been a third loss on the spin for us and we would have been at panic stations.

“We went three goals ahead then sat back to let the game take its course and there was a strong chance we could catch them on the counter.

“Some people wanted more goals but I wanted a clean sheet because it shows discipline. We got ourselves organised and also had two goals disallowed.

“We got a good crowd, over 100 people came to watch us again, and everyone can take credit for that “Sometimes it can be a bit scary because you play the supposed underdogs and Old Windsor try their hardest. Until you nullify them they are a threat because they’re fit enough to play for 90 minutes.

“Old Windsor found it hard and you could see the difference really because we got a hold of them very quickly.

"We've won the game and can now look forward to the final."

Looking ahead to the final, Lloyd said: "We've just got to go and win the cup now and I always put faith in my players.

"We will have to work hard for 90 minutes because it will come down to who wants it more and who has that little bit of luck.

"That applies to both Langley and Delaford but, whoever we play, it will come down to who wants it more on the day.

"We will not be favourites against either of them. We've come up into the Hellenic League but the East Berkshire Premier Division is strong and cup games are impossible to call."

Chalvey return to action in Hellenic Division Two East with a trip to Aston Clinton this Saturday (2.15pm).

Lloyd commented: "We've never lost and have a good goals tally against them so I will insist on the three points.

"We've got to put the game to bed early and we must get the three points if we want to win the league.

"We have had a little breathing space because everyone is allowed one loss, but we can't start to stack them up.

"The defeat at Abingdon Town was a hiccup because we were missing five players, but at our strongest we're one of the hardest sides in the league."

The Stabmonks boss added: "Everyone is playing for their place now because we have a massive squad and competition for the shirts.

"We have cover in all areas and it's lovely to have that at this time of year because usually you're flapping.

"We're still in the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy as well so there's so much still to play for.

"A lot of teams hang their coats up at this time of the season, but for us it's exciting because we're still in with a chance of winning the league and cup competitions."
