We start with a round-up of events from Sunday:
Eversley & California 0 Woodley United 1
Woodley began life back in Division One by taking all three points at Fox Lane. A May Hamblin strike was the difference between the two sides in what sounded like a very tightly contested game.
There's a great review of the game from new hopper and blogger @wanderintractor here - The Wandering Tractor
This game was also lucky enough to have not one but two local photographers present. Take a look at the action from @oakmistphotos here - Oakmist Photos and you can see some great shots from @andrewbatt5 here - Andrew Batt
Rdg.Today also ran a report of the game which features some of Andrew's photos - News & Sport for Reading
Kidlington Youth 4 Caversham United 1
The Greens produced a complete reversal of the cup meeting between the sides last season. Last season's top scorer, Courtney Sumner who also scored Kidlington's goal against Caversham last season, got off to a blistering start grabbing all four goals for Kidlington. Sumayah Zayadi replied for the Goats on a day that they will want to put in the past as soon as possible.

United put last season's ninth place finish firmly in the past as they started the season with resounding victory over newly promoted Long Crendon. Ahead 2-1 at the break through goals from Charlotte Comley and Holly Potter, Milton added two more through Natalie Evans and April England in the second half. Michelle Bailey, who also won Long Crendon's PotM award, replied for the Greens.

Penn & Tylers Green A-A Carterton (5-1)
This game was abandoned after 76 minutes following a medical emergency involving a Carterton player. BotP has been informed that the player in question is home from hospital and recovering, which is great news. I am sure everyone wishes her all the best.
Penn were leading 5-1 when the game was stopped, with two goals each from Sasha Smith and Ellie Ludgate-Williams and another from Henna Hussain. Kirsten Rolls replied for Carterton. We are told that the result will stand, which puts Penn top of the table on goal difference at the end of week 1.
Looking forward to next Sunday, there is a mixed bag of league and FA Cup fixtures. All games ate 14:00 kick-off unless stated.
Up for the cup are both Woodley United and Milton United.
Brentford v Woodley United
London and South East Division One side Brentford are already 3 games into their league campaign. Seemingly strong at home, they have won both fixtures so far, scoring five and conceding just one. Their one blot was the 9-2 defeat to league leaders Dorking Wanderers.

Milton United v Slough Town
Slough opened their Thames Valley Division 1 season last weekend with a thumping 5-0 win at Banbury United. Despite both sides coming up through the Thames Valley Leagues, they don't appear to have been in the same division together.

In the league
Eversley & California v Carterton
Both will be looking to bounce back after opening day defeats. The sides shared a division in the Thames Valley League for a few years and, despite Eversley holding sway a few years back, the last five meetings have produced 4 Carterton wins and a draw. Having said that, Eversley have one year extra experience at this level. It could be a tight encounter.

Long Crendon v Caversham United
Two more sides looking to get their campaigns started after opening day defeats. Both played in the Thames valley League last season with Long Crendon finishing six points ahead of the Goats. However, in head to heads it was Caversham who had the bragging rights, doing the double over The Greens, 3-1 at Mapeldurham and 2-1 back in Long Crendon.

Penn & Tylers Green v Kidlington
The final game this week sees two sides who started the season like trains go head to head. Defence could well be key in this game as both sides possess excellent fire power. Ellie Ludgate-Williams and Sasha Smith scored 33 between them last season. Both scored a brace on the opening day. Kidlington's Courtney Sumner smashed home 31 in 20 games last season and bagged all four against Caversham last Sunday.
French Meadow School, Elm Road, Penn HP10 8LG
