Gingell wraps up scoring as Henley Town march on

Division 2 league leaders HENLEY TOWN eased to a 3-0 home win against MAIDENHEAD TOWN RESERVES.

Henley started the game on the front foot and opened the scoring when a Mike Classen shot was cleared off the line by a Maidenhead defender but Jonathon Duarte was first to the rebound and smashed home a first time shot from outside the box.

Henley were dominating the first half and scored a second goal when Alberto Gingell laid the ball back to Alex Walmsley whose low cross found Dan York in the six yard box unmarked for an easy tap in.

The second half was well controlled by Henley with Maidenhead not threatening the home goal at any point.

Henley kept disciplined as Maidenhead picked up a flurry of yellow cards for fouls. It was the Henley midfield that took control back of the game when Jake Jones started to win plenty of possession and had a free kick crash off the crossbar.

Henley netted their third goal of the game on 80 minutes when Gingell cleverly cut inside a couple of defenders and finished with a low shot into the bottom corner.

Maidenhead were reduced to 10 men after one of their defenders made a rash tackle on the halfway line.
