Narrow defeat for the Kites to league leaders

HENLEY TOWN went down to a narrow 1-0 defeat away at unbeaten Premier Division league leaders MAIDEN PLACE last Sunday.

The first half was evenly contested with both teams limiting each other’s chances to a minimum with Charlie York making two good saves for the visitors.

Maiden Place were on top for the final 10 minutes of the first half but the Henley defenders and midfielders did well to make some crucial last ditch tackles to ensure the score line remained goalless.

The second half was played in similar fashion with neither team creating many clear opportunities on goal. Maiden Place broke the deadlock on 70 minutes when a long throw was flicked in at the near post. Henley searched for an equaliser but couldn’t create any clear opportunities.
