Horder wraps up scoring for newly-promoted Town
Newly-promoted HENLEY TOWN got their Division 2 campaign off to a winning start as they triumphed 3-1 at RICHINGS PARK RESERVES. There were few chances in the opening 30 minutes before Henley took the lead when a dangerous ball in from Josh Mills could only be directed in by a Richings defender for an own goal.
Henley then started to put the home team under pressure and just before the break made it 2-0 when Dan Chalfont picked up the ball and with his quick feet flat-footed the goalkeeper to put the ball into an empty net.
After the break the home side started to look more lively but Phil Atkinson in the Henley goal pulled off several good saves to keep the score at 2-0. With 10 minutes of the match remaining the home side pulled a goal back to make it a nervy end for Henley. However, Henley broke away late in the game and made sure of the three points when Nathan Horder scored into the bottom left of the goal.
