Town in for tough challenge
Published 01/09/14



HENLEY TOWN entertain Chinnor in Division One (East) of the Uhlsport Hellenic League tomorrow, kick-off 3pm, and there is every indication that this will be a very close game, writes John Bailey.

In the two sides’ 50 previous meetings, which began 40 years ago, Chinnor have a slight advantage, with 24 victories to Henley’s 18.

Last season, however, when the Town lost 3-2 at Station Road in September but won the return match in March 3-0, they finished one place above their Oxfordshire rivals.

The positions would have been reversed had Henley not been awarded one point following the abandonment of their final game at Penn.

Similarly, this season each team has begun its league campaign with one win, one draw and one defeat - assuming that the result of last Saturday’s abandoned match at the Invesco Perpetual Triangle is allowed to stand.


Chinnor were 4-3 winners at home over Burnham Reserves last weekend.

The Town’s youth team are at home on Wednesday in their first league match since returning to the Central Division of the Allied Counties Youth League, kick-off 7.45pm.Clanfield ’85 Youth provide the opposition.

In a friendly last week, the youths drew 1-1 at home with Hartley Wintney Youth.

The advertised game between the reserves and the Sunday team last week did not take place as the Triangle needed to be rested prior to Saturday’s game, but the Sunday side have still been busy recently.

In their first pre-season friendly, they entertained and beat Unity 2-1 through two strikes by Sam Bell Jnr.

This was followed by a visit to Bishopswood, where the home team won 3-1.
