Berko marched into the quarter finals of the Premier Division Cup with a comfortable win over a depleted AFC Dunstable side on Guy Fawkes Night. Mick Vipond named an unchanged team for the third successive game.

Josh Chamberlain was denied an early penalty claim when he was floored in the box. Frankie Jowle squeezed a shot across the face of the goal and a Connor Calcutt free kick almost went in. Eventually Chamberlain gave Berko the lead with a well struck shot that went in the left of the net. Jordon Frederick bent a shot round the wall and past the busy Ryan Darby to double the lead before the interval. The home team were playing some fine football passing the ball well and had many chances.

The visitors had a couple of men booked for fouls and a Chamberlain shot and a Frederick header went over the bar. An Ed Canham header from a corner was deflected in by Jowle to make it 3-0 at the railway end. AFC tried to get back in the match and had a headed goal disallowed for offside. Half time substitute Carl Ibbottson capitalised on a weak back pass to pull a goal back. A fine low shot from Connor Calcutt added the fourth goal late in the game.

Berko: Tasker; Griggs, Rodrigoe Sears, Canham, Hawes,Jowle(Towell),  , Gavin,Calcutt Frederick (Bent), Jowle,  Chamberlain (Morrissey), Substitutes not used Copson & Butler.

Third placed Berko’s first team will be trying to do the double at Broadwater over London Colney on Saturday in a game sponsored by The Plough-Potten End. They then make the short trip to Hemel Hempstead’s Vauxhall Road ground to play another league games against London Lions on Wednesday 13th.
