Free-scoring Henley have title in their sight

Staines 2nds 2
Henley 1sts 7

HENLEY’S 7-2 victory at Staines last Saturday means that a win this Saturday by three goals or more against Eastcote will see the amber and blues crowned MBBO Regional Division 1 winners.

The visitors headed into their penultimate game of the season knowing that only a win would do if they were to hold any hope of winning the league and automatic promotion.

With the squad back up to full strength with the return of Jody Measures and captain Roy Cox, the Henley side achieved their goal.

The game started brightly with the sides sharing possession and chances equally. The aerial threat from Staines’ right-hand side was causing some issues in the Henley back line and the visitors’ counter-attacking was creating chances but with no real results.


It took 20 minutes for Henley to break the deadlock. Driven forward by Rhys Joyce, Henley’s midfield put together some neat interchanges, releasing Robert Mortimer to score with a flick from the top of the D. The goal knocked Staines’ resolve and a second quickly followed. Edmundes Foster won and converted a short corner, flicking the ball high into the net beyond the Staines keeper’s reach.

The second half started like the first, with both sides creating chances. It was Henley who took the initiative, carving goals three and four in quick succession.

Staines responded with two of their own and with an open goal missed at the mercy of Chris Green’s stick, Henley kicked back into gear. A move down Henley’s left involving Measures and Jonny Taylor created space for a tap-in for Joyce at the far post. Further Henley goals followed to take the match away from Staines, ensuring all three points went to the visitors.
