Once again Prostar sponsored the game providing both teams two match balls each, via Kits Direct, Datchet.

This was a hard game with both teams determined to reach the Final. Wraysbury started the stronger and were a goal up within 10 minutes, when a Ben Swift shot hit the woodwork for Simon Clarke to fire home.

Wraysbury did most of the pressing in the half, with Slough Heating finding it hard against a strong defence. Swift hit the woodwork again with a 20 yard effort after good work by Clarke.

The second half continued in the same manner, with a few goal mouth scares for Slough Heating. It was not until the final minutes that Wraysbury got their second when Swift lobbed the keeper.

This sets up a Final with five times winners Wraysbury against the current holders Rayners Lane on Good Friday, 21st March, a 10:30am kick off at Burnham F.C.

Next week is the second Junior Semi Final where Eastcote entertain Windsor Great Park.
