Going strong

Division 2, league leaders HENLEY TOWN beat RICHINGS PARK RESERVES 4-2 at the Triangle Ground.

Henley started the game on the back foot and struggled to maintain possession of the ball in the opening 10 minutes.

Once Henley started pressing higher up the pitch they were soon rewarded with a goal after Charlie Douglas forced the Richings Park defenders into a mistake that allowed Jack Woodley to score from close range.

Henley doubled their lead when a Jake Jokes corner was flicked in at the near post by Charlie Douglas.

At 2-0 up Henley started to play some good football and dominated the remainder of the first half.

The second half didn’t start well as Richings Park pulled a goal back from a free kick. Henley were on the back-foot for the next 10 minutes and did well to keep their lead after some good defending from the back four and Mike Classen in midfield who made several good tackles.

Harry Geyton was brought on as a substitute and made a near instant impact when he picked the ball up from 40 yards and made a solo run into the box and finished calmly to make it 3-1.

Fellow substitute Harri Douglas also made an instant impact when he scored goal with his left foot from more than 40 yards out.

Richings Park scored a second goal with five minutes left on the clock.
