Henley Mayor Julian Brookes, Deputy Mayor Will Hamilton and town and county councillor David Nimmo Smith were given a tour of AFC Henley’s ground at Jubilee Park by club chairman Trevor Howell.

More than 150 players take part in competitive games at ground every Saturday and about 50 more attend a skills school with coaches from Reading Football Club. Part of the visit was to discuss a new clubhouse. The club’s current one, which is opposite Tesco in Reading Road, will be knocked down and replaced as the town council plnas to sell the land to a developer.

The site is listed for about 30 homes in the joint Henley and Harpsden neighbourhood development plan. Mr Howell said he understood the new clubhouse would take about 18 months to be built after the land was sold. He added: “It’s great for us because the developer is not going to want to hang around and is going to have to do the clubhouse first as part of the package.”
