VISITORS KIDMORE END/THE MOD RESERVES moved up to third place in the Premier Division last Sunday.

The Gallowstree Common side eased to their biggest win of the season as they defeated hosts AFC PANGBOURNE 7-0.

In Division 1 SC UNITED picked up their first point of the season as they drew 2-2 against FC WOODLEY at Woodford Park.

HENLEY TOWN AFC made it three Division 3 East wins out of three as they comfortably beat FC BERKSALONA 4-0 at the Triangle Ground.

The hosts took the lead when a move that started with Thomas Chaplin clearing the ball out saw Arran Finch take possession under control inside his own half and release Leon Mannion with a ball that split the defence. Mannion took the ball under control before slotting it between the keeper’s legs to put his side ahead.



The hosts doubled their lead when Pete Shora won the ball on half way and played it into Mannion who beat his man and broke free before passing the ball into the bottom left corner.

Soon after Tom Essam won the ball in midfield with a good challenge and played it through to Aaron Brittain who took a touch before slotting home into the bottom left to make it 3-0.

Just before half-time Henley Town AFC won a free kick on the half-way line which was taken by Shora who sent the ball into the box and it deflected off a few players before breaking loose. Brittain battled for it and the ball broke free outside the box 20 yards from goal where Mannion fired home to complete his hat-trick.

In the second half Henley Town AFC continued to pressure and play good football but failed to add to the scoreline with their opponents only forcing one shot during the whole match.
