Woodcote find going tough on league debut

WOODCOTE’S first ever match in the Uhlsport Hellenic League resulted in a heavy 7-1 defeat at HUNGERFORD TOWN SWIFTS’ Bulpit Lane last Saturday.

Four goals were conceded inside the first 30 minutes and things only got a little better when Ryan Smith’s powerful shot made the score 5-1.

Hungerford scored twice more in the second half to complete the rout.
