Hotspurs’ Symons at the double
Published 31/03/14



AFC HENLEY U16s went down to a 2-0 East Berks League Division 3 defeat at home to promotion-chasing WOODLEY WANDERERS U16s on Saturday.

The game flowed from end to end but neither team could find a way through in the first half. Henley went close with a 30-yard shot from Henry Arthur before goalkeeper Greengrass held a long range shot from Woodley with attackers closing in.

Ten minutes into the second half the visitors took the lead with a strike from the edge of the area.

Henley pushed forward in search of an equaliser and with 10 minutes remaining a Woodley defender managed to save a shot from Hancock with the keeper beaten.

Henley kept the pressure up but with numbers forward Woodley broke away to score their second of the match.


A first clean sheet of the season saw hosts AFC HENLEY HOTSPURS U11s continue their unbeaten run as they defeated WEST BYFLEET SCORPIONS U11s 3-0 at Jubilee Park.

After a close fought first period Henley made their possession tell with a passing movement finished off by striker Will Symons.

Just before the break a goal mouth scramble ended up with Zodey Sabijan getting the final touch.

Straight from the kick off Leo Browne burst down the right wing and laid the ball back inside for Symons to score his second.

AFC HENLEY HURRICANES U11s’ four match unbeaten run in the league came to an end when they lost 2-1 at home to FINCHAMPSTEAD U11s.

A lacklustre start by Henley saw them outplayed and out fought by the visitors who looked dangerous attacking down both wings. A header from an accurate cross saw the visitors take the lead.

Finchampstead doubled the lead minutes later when they forced the ball home after Henley failed to clear their lines from a corner.

The visitors continued to apply the pressure but stand-in keeper Ben Hudson pulled off some good saves to keep the score at 2-0 while the defensive trio of Liam Hilditch, William Saunders and Ollie Leeman began to assert some authority on the game.

Shortly before halftime Henley pulled a goal back with a long range finish from Jamie Hudson.

The hosts began the second half with the wind at their back. Henley came closest to scoring with an Archie Barker effort shaving the post in a match that saw Dino Cheesman named man-of-the-match for the hosts.
