Berko, the holders set up a home St Marys Cup semi final with either Oxhey Jets or Tring Athletic on a frosty night at Broadwater when they returned to winning ways. Mick Vipond had to do without the suspended Ed Canham and chose to promote Jack Copson, James Bent, James Towell, Ashley Morrissey and Ben Butler to the starting line up after being on the bench a lot recently.

Bent opened the scoring after Josh Chamberlain created the goal with some fine play up the left. Towell beat three and curled a shot against the post. Chamberlain doubled the lead before the interval with a shot that a defender on the line could not prevent going in.

Rovers contributed to the game but Berko missed a stack of chances at the canal end in the second half. However, further goals from Chamberlain who rolled the ball in from a tight angle and Bent after good work by substitute Connor Calcutt made it 4-0 in the end. Keiron Turner came on for his debut after some promising performacnes in the reserves.

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

Third placed Berko play Holmer Green twice, in a home league game on Saturday 23rd and then away on Tuesday 26th in the Challenge Trophy.
