(Left) Graham Mal­colm has been forced to be cre­ative with his line-up; (right) Ryan Mill­ward got on the score­sheet but also missed a sit­ter but that’s not what we’re about, we’re about de­vel­op­ing play­ers.”

Dan Rap­ley also net­ted in a win over one of the pre-sea­son ti­tle favourites which has Mal­colm purring.

He said: “Along with Thatcham and Kidling­ton, High­worth will be the team to beat, and were FA Vase semi-fi­nal­ists last term, so that will go down as our best per­for­mance of the sea­son so far.

“I am de­lighted that we could achieve that with the slight de­ple­tion of the team. In games like that, you have to keep the mo­men­tum go­ing, keep it in their ech­e­lons and see what comes along.

“Your mind­set has to be dif­fer­ent, you have to be com­posed and counter at­tack. Some­times you can put your best team out and not get per­for­mances like that.”

Flack­well fol­lowed that by beat­ing As­ton Clin­ton 4-0 in the Wy­combe Se­nior Cup on Tues­day night, thanks to a Jamie Hanscombe dou­ble, plus one each for Burnell and Dan Mol­loy. They host Milton United on Satur­day.

Mean­while, there was a shock in the Berks & Bucks In­ter­me­di­ate Cup when Penn & Tyler Green were knocked out 2-1 by East Berk­shire League side Lynch­pin, while Chal­font Wasps had a walkover against Ham­ble­don. Penn host Bices­ter Town on Satur­day while Wasps welcome Thatcham Town.
