2 goals disallowed see Town lose

HENLEY TOWN went down to a 3-0 Division 2 defeat at DATCHET VILLAGE.

The visitors started the game well, maintaining possession and thought they had taken the lead when Nathan Horder slotted the ball past the goalkeeper with 10 minutes on the clock but the goal was ruled out after the referee consulted the linesman for a foul on the Datchet defender.

Shortly after, Datchet took the lead when a bouncing ball in the box found its way to the home forward who headed home from close range. Datchet doubled their lead when their winger cut inside the box, firing low and hard into the Henley goal. The home side made it 3-0 on the stroke of half time.

Henley didn’t let their heads drop in the second half and fought well but could not find a way back when they hit the post and crossbar after 10 minutes and had another goal disallowed for a foul on Datchet goalkeeper following a Rowan Stacey free kick.

Dan York also saved a Datchet penalty for the visitors late in the game to keep the score to 3-0 .
