Cookham defended brilliantly until five minutes before the break when Sandhurst scored with a good header. On the stroke of half time the visitors almost levelled the tie - but Jack Alders goal bound shot was blocked under the bar seconds before the whistle blew.
Disaster struck soon after the restart when five minutes in - the home side scored twice in 3 minutes - the first a nice individual goal from the right winger and the second a speculative shot from distance which in effect was a killer. Dispite the double set back Cookham battled on and Sandhurst were indepted to their goalkeeper who pulled off several good saves. The visitors could - and did deserve to reduce the arrears as they played their hearts out for the last half hour - but it was not to be and Sandhurst Town moved into the Senior Trophy Quarter Finals - and we wish them good luck for the rest of the competition.
Meanwhile Cookham Dean's focus is now firmly on to Saturday's important match at Burghfield FC in the TVPL
