Town’s victory marred by Maskell’s injury

THE Henley Town’s Sunday side became the only team of the club to take the field in almost a month when they visited Woodley Hammers.

With only one other game in the Reading and District Sunday League’s Premier Division surviving the ravages of the weather, the Town took the opportunity to move to the top of the table.

The Hammers had the better of the first half, and only sterling work by goalkeeper Andy Menear and central defender Ed Bickerton ensured a goalless first half.

The Town also lost Ollie Maskell after 30 minutes when he had to be taken to hospital with what turned out to be a broken elbow following a collision with a Woodley player.

Woodley took the lead early in the second half. This goal spurred Henley into action and they looked much the better side for the rest of the match. Sam Bell senior was moved up into midfield and soon made his presence felt with an equalising goal.
