Henley's five-star performance against Goring

HENLEY TOWN recorded their first league win of the season as they beat GORING UNITED RESERVES 5-1 at the Triangle Ground.

Henley started the game on the front foot and were unfortunate not to be a goal ahead just after 10 minutes when Nico Cheesman pulled the ball back to Dan York whose effort crashed against the crossbar.

Shortly after Henley took the lead when Nick Holzer finished from close range. Henley’s dominance continued when just after the half time break they were awarded a penalty which Cheesman converted into the bottom left hand corner. Henley went 3-0 up when a Cheesman shot came back off the post for Rowan Stacey to tap home the rebound.

Goring pulled a goal back when Jack Page-Smith finished powerfully into the bottom right of the goal.

Henley soon restored their three-goal lead when the Goring goalkeeper dropped a cross and again Stacey was there to tap home for 4-1.

Henley scored with the last kick of the game when a Craig Trimmings through ball found Daniel Chalfont, whose speed was too much for the Goring defence and he finished neatly with a shot into the bottom left of the goal.
