Injury hit HENLEY TOWN recorded a 2-0 win away at WOODLEY UNITED A.

In a match played out in a swirling wind, Henley’s near centre back pairing of Henry Arthur and Alex Harris White dealt well with anything the home side threw at them.

The visitors almost took the lead when Harri Douglas was through on goal but he was denied by a good save by the home goalkeeper.

Henley took the lead on 20 minutes when a through ball found Rowan Stacey who cut inside the box before scoring with a low shot.

Striker Nick Holzer, returning from injury, almost made it 2-0 but his shot struck the post.

Woodley’s best efforts of equalising came from set pieces but these were well dealt with by the centre backs along with Dan York and Nathan Horder in the back four and goalkeeper Shawn Batten Vickers.

Early in the second half Henley weathered an early storm by the hosts before going 2-0 when Sam Earl, playing his first game for the side, scored from a partly cleared clearance.

Earl, Dan Sykes and Richard Vallis dominated the midfield for the visitors. Henley went close to extending their lead when Holzer hit the post from a corner while Dan Sykes had three good chances late in the game.
