A day of mixed fortunes for our local football clubs

Reading players celebrate staying in the Championship - picture credited to Reading FC

Football fans in Berkshire and North Hampshire have been reflecting on a day of mixed fortunes for four of our local football clubs.

There were jubilant celebrations as Hungerford Town kept their place in National League South, thanks to a dramatic equaliser in their 1-1 draw with East Thurrock.

Their place in the league was secured thanks to Noah Chesmain's last gasp goal, which levelled proceedings in the crucial match.

Many fans, players and staff took to social media to celebrate, including the club's Vice-Chair.

Elsewhere Maidenhead United ended their national league campaign on a high winning 2-0 at home to Chesterfield.

In North Hampshire there was heartbreak in the final match at The Camrose, as Basingstoke Town suffered relegation from the Evostik Southern League after they were beaten 2-1 by Taunton Town.

Staff and players say they'll be working together to look to the future.

In the Championship, Reading officially avoided relegation despite losing 2-1 at Middlesborough.

The result and other games going their way secured the Royals future in the league for another year.

Speaking after the match, Royals Manager Jose Gomes told his players to do the home fans proud when they play their final game of the season against Birmingham City at the Madejski Stadium next weekend.
