Marlow pulled off a huge shock in the Berks & Bucks Cup last night as they defeated National League South side Slough Town 1-0 at Oak Tree Road.

Kelvin Bossman was the hero for the Blues, firing home the winner in the 50th minute.

As expected, Marlow had few chances in the game but took the one that mattered against their illustrious opponents.

Slough almost took the lead in the fifth minute when Simon Grant in the Marlow goal pulled off a miraculous double save to deny Louie Soares.

Soares nearly gave the visitors the lead on 20 minutes, striking a ferocious effort inches wide.

The visitors were in the ascendency and Warren Harris nearly netted a minute later, but his volley flashed wide of the target.

Marlow were defending stoutly but almost went behind on 43 minutes when Manny Williams' shot was superbly tipped over by Grant.

Slough had one more chance before the break and Williams struck the bar after Grant parried George Wells' effort.

Bossman then sent the Marlow fans wild with his goal just after the break but Slough hit back strongly and Williams' shot on 54 minutes crept agonisingly wide.

The home side, led by the brilliant Grant, were looking so organised at the back and chances became rarer for Slough.

Wells had a chance on 82 minutes to level but he fired narrowly wide after a short corner.

Marlow had five minutes of injury time to see out and they did so expertly, sending the supporters home happy.

Manager Mark Bartley said: "Pleased for the players as they grafted their way to a great semi-final victory. We spent long periods without the ball and, as expected, our defensive resolve was tested to the max.

"We knew chances would be at a premium, but we took one and the rest is history."

Bartley's side now face Reading FC Academy in the final.
