Douglas scores brace as Town make cup progress

HENLEY TOWN eased into the second round of the county intermediate cup after running out 4-1 winners at LAUNTON SPORTS last Saturday.

The opening 10 minutes of the game was even with both teams maintaining possession well.

Henley took the lead after 20 minutes when a Liam Painter through ball found its way to Harri Douglas who finished well into the right of the goal.

Moments later Henley thought they had to doubled their lead but the goal was rulled out for offside.

Henley began the second half well and started to dominate in every area of the pitch and doubled their lead when a Dan York fine cross found Rich Vallisn at the back post who finished well with a stretching right leg.

The visitors put the game to bed with 20 minutes remaining by scoring their third goal of the game when good play from the midfield allowed Nathan Horder away down the left and he finished well with a low finish in the bottom right corner of the goal.

Henley made it 4-0 when Nick Holzer’s low cross found Douglas running in to tap home his second of the match. Launton Sports pulled a goal back in added on time.
