Hotspurs dig deep to stay in winning ways
Published 14/04/14



HENLEY HOTSPURS continued their unbeaten run in 2014 with a hard-fought away win agaist WOODLEY on Wednesday night

In an even first half both teams cancelled each other out, Woodley scoring first only for Will Symons to equalise for the Hotspurs.

Justus Larter then put the away team in front with some individal skill before Woodley equalised to send the teams in at half time 2-2.

Woodley pressed hard to go in front during the second period and only a string of excellent saves in goal by man of the match Alex Tams kept the scores level.

Henley then broke forward to win a free kick, which captain Felix Butterworth blasted into the top corner from 20 yards.


This took the wind out of Woodley’s sails. Henley pressed on and two goals from Leo Browne sent the Hotpsurs home with a 5-2 win

HENLEY HOTSPURS U11s consolidated there position at the top of the table with a deserved 2 0 victory over Bracknell Cavaliers on Saturday.

Henley started slowly and had goalkeeper Alex Tams to thank for some brave work to keep the scores level.

Henley took the lead when a mazy Justus Larter run ended with Will Symons firing home.

Henley raised their game in the second half with Harry Purslow and Xavier Mica both going close but could not break through a stubborn Brackell defence. With five minutes left Larter was fouled in the box and duly dusted himself down to smash home the resulting penalty to put the game to bed.

AFC HENLEY HURRICANES U11s drew 1-1 away to HAWLEY RAIDERS in the East Berkshire Youth League on Saturday.

The first quarter was fairly even in possession, but it was Hawley who had the better chances, firing crosses across the box but unable to apply a finishing touch. Henley put together some fine interplay but were unable to create any real chances.

It was one such passage of play that saw Henley take the lead in the second quarter; great passing between Jem McAllister, Archie Barker and Ben Yeoman ended with a fierce strike from Yeoman which the keeper could only parry and Barker was there to slot the ball home.

Henley defender Liam Hilditch was outstanding with some superbly timed tackles and only Hawley’s profligacy in front of goal prevented them equalising. The equaliser did come however in the final quarter from a penalty.

Lucas Pestana battled hard in midfield and Henley had chances to win the match, Barker and McAllister both being foiled by the bounce on an incredibly hard pitch when one on one with the keeper.
