SINGH Sabha have progressed into the quarter-finals of the East Berkshire Football League Cup this season after a 6-2 win against Signcraft on Saturday.

An impressive first 45 minutes saw Sabha run out comfortable winners over in-form Signcraft in wet conditions at Richings Park.

Sabha went into the cup tie on the back of a poor result in the Premier Division, a 0-0 draw with Stoke Poges Saints, and were looking to get back on track.

Signcraft have a five-point lead at the top of Division One and beat Singh Sabha in the Ascot Fielden Cup earlier in the season.

Singh Sabha were boosted by the return of several players and took the lead through Mandeep Rai, who was starting his first game in over two months.

The visitors doubled their advantage moments later as stand-in striker Lewis Gratton got on the scoresheet.

Sabha were using the wet conditions to their advantage and made it 3-0 on the 30-minute mark when Rai got his second goal.

Singh Sabha made it 4-0 just before half-time thanks to man-of-the-match Gratton.

The away side were able to take an easier approach to the second half and made it 5-0 thanks to Sukh Hunjan, who scored with a fine strike.

Sabha did switch off at the back as Signcraft pulled a goal back, but it was not long before Sabha made it 6-1 when winger Hasan Mahmood scored after good work from Makh.

Signcraft did pull another back another consolation goal late on but it was too little too late as Singh Sabha ran out deserved winners in the last-16 tie.

Sabha will face FC Beaconsfield in the quarter-finals and return to action in the Premier Division with a trip to Old Windsor on Saturday (3pm).
