Bell hits right notes for Robins

HENLEY HURRICANES U11s returned to winning ways on Saturday with a comfortable 3-0 home win over ASHRIDGE PARK U11s.

HENLEY HURRICANES U11s returned to winning ways on Saturday with a comfortable 3-0 home win over ASHRIDGE PARK U11s.

The first half saw some good football being played by both sides but with neither goalkeeper being seriously tested.

The deadlock was broken early in the third quarter after Jem McAllister finished calmly following a goal mouth scramble.

Henley doubled their advantage after some determined closing down by Jamie Hudson resulted in the ball falling to Adam Palmer in the box who made no mistake with the finish to register his first goal for the Hurricanes.

Henley’s third came when Lucas Pestana was on hand to follow up when a McAllister cross rebounded off the visiting keeper. Henley’s defence, led by man-of-the-match Oli Leeman, saw out the remainder of the match.



GORING ROBINS U12s, who went into Saturday’s match joint second in Division 2 of the Berkshire Youth Development League with hosts REEVES RANGERS U12s, ran out comfortable 4-0 winners.

Rangers presented a well-organised and capable defence and, for the whole first half, the Robins were unable to capitalise on their chances as the hosts’ goalkeeper commanded his area with confidence.

Just before half-time Goring’s Matthew Bell finally beat the keeper but was flagged offside.

Both teams started brightly in the second half having made a number of changes.

The Robins’ Edward Bronimann quickly made his presence felt when the ball was judged to have crossed the line, and this was followed in quick succession with goals by Bell, Bronimann and Bell again.

Rangers had little left to reply with and the last quarter of the game was played out with the Robins having long periods of possession but unable to add to their score.
