THE winners of the recent Henley Standard competition to win tickets to see London Irish take on London Welsh were Mr J Davies of St Andrew’s Road, Henley, Mrs Jennifer Buckley of Crowsley Road, Lower Shiplake, Jonathan Davey of Poundfield Way, Twyford, Christopher Edwards of Dumbarton Way, Caversham and Marina Jones of Bushell Way, Arborfield.
All five correctly answered that London Irish play their matches at Madejski Stadium.
HENLEY LADIES ran out winners in rearranged South Clubs’ Division 2 fixture against Marlow on Tuesday evening with one eye firmly on the National Trophy final in Nottingham in two weeks’ time.
The game started at a high pace with Henley producing a number of good attacks. Good inter play between Georgie Metcalfe and Cleo Lyn cut the Marlow defence to pieces and Henley were unlucky not to go into the lead.
Ten minutes into the half a misplaced pass saw Marlow counterattack quickly and they forced a short corner. The corner was converted with a resounding strike beating Sam Smith low in the bottom right corner.
Henley continued to send wave after wave of attack at the Marlow defence and 10 minutes later Henley equalised after a good run and finish from Kiera Halloran.
Five minutes later another attack down Henley’s right-hand side saw a ball played into Jenny Buckham at the top of the circle and she found Esme Walker with a disguised pass who put her side in front.
The second half carried on in a similar fashion and Halloran had another two chances to score before finally bagging her second of the match.
Although Henley then had to absorb pressure from the visiting team, the result never looked in doubt as they ran out winners and finished in the top half of the table, the highest ever final league placing for the side.
