Swinburn brace helps hit Newbury and Thatcham for six
Published 17/02/14

HENLEY U16s eased to a comfortable 6-1 victory away at NEWBURY AND THATCHAM U16s.

Solid work through the centre of midfield by Cheesman and Newbold created a series of attacking opportunities for the visitors from the off.

An early goal for Swinburn from a tap-in opened the score sheet for Henley and marked the start of a series of attacks on the Newbury and Thatcham goal.

Playing upfront, the partnership of Bringmann, Swinburn, Herbert and D Cheesman provided good leading runs for the Henley midfield to target.

Swinburn added his second goal of the match striking the ball home from a tight angle. Good individual skill from Herbert, released from his start of season role as keeper, was rewarded with the third goal of the first half for the visitors.

In the second half, Newbury and Thatcham brought more attacking play, targeting their high players, and pulled a goal back.

Henley reacted well by moving their defence and midfield to create greater depth and width. Beaumont stepped into a sweeper role to work with Wise in central defence in breaking down play higher up the pitch and in distributing the ball out wide.

With the Henley wide players now more involved a combination of Wiseman and Rechner on the right and Wray and Alpin on the left generated penetrating attacks. Fine individual skill through midfield from Cheesman resulted in the first second half goal for Henley.

Newbold was not to be outdone and showed flare through midfield to set Rechner up for the next goal and to secure the final goal of the game for himself through good team play.

HENLEY LIONS, one of three sides entered into Sunday’s Thames Valley U10s minis tournament by the host club at Jubilee Park, won three of their five matches played, losing the other two.

Three goals came from Thomas Harding, two from Caitlin Swinburn and one from Lily Hoogenberg.

The Lions demonstrated how much the players have progressed this season with good defensive work from Mali Knibbs and Anya Marston supported by the midfield who generated fast paced breaks on the wide from Kai Sabijan and Fergus Heggie.

HENLEY PANTHERS drew two games and lost three. All of their matches were tightly fought and the Panthers were unfortunate not to come away with a better set of results.

Goals came from Nonnie Luke and Max Jones with some strong attacking play. The team demonstrated their determination in midfield and defence with strong tackling from Lucy Blomfield, Katy Spatcher, Molly Amlot and Alice Pegley which created attacking opportunities for Emma Pressley.

Both the HENLEY COUGARS and the HENLEY PUMAS won one game and lost four against strong opposition.

The Pumas conceded few goals with solid defensive work from Archie Webb and Laura McLoughlin. The team worked hard in midfield to break down play, with Hannah Parsons, Bethany Hunt, Rebecca Hughes and Finlay Bell putting in the legwork. Olivia Schrier made a sound playing debut and the hard work of Beatrice Bradley was rewarded with their only goal of the morning.

The Henley Cougars also conceded few goals with defence and midfield putting in the legwork.

Good defensive work from Neve Staines, Summer Reid, Gracie Wilson and Laurence Sadler all supported attacking opportunities for Starr Cheesman and Katie Lovatt while fine individual skill resulted in a hat-trick for Amelie Judge and one for Fabian Cheesman.
