York’s long range goal wraps up scoring in five-star display

HENLEY TOWN moved up to sixth place in the Premier Division after thrashing ENGLEFIELD 5-1 at the Triangle Ground.

The hosts started brightly and were rewarded when Hugh Barklem opened the scoring after tapping in a cross from Dan York.

Henley continued to dominate the game and scored their second goal of the match after 30 minutes when Barklem headed home another cross from Dan York. The home side were pegged back when Englefield scored a goal on 35 minutes.

Henley made a substitution at half-time introducing Nico Cheesman to the game and his first touch was to fire a first- time strike from 30 yards into the top corner to make it 3-1.

The home side quickly scored another goal when Daniel Chalfont was played through by Charlie York and he cooly slotted the ball past the goalkeeper.

Despite leading 4-1 Henley didn’t stop pressing and scored a fifth when a fine performance from Dan York was capped off with a 30 yard thunderbolt into the bottom corner.
