Slow start proves costly

HENLEY 3rds lost their final pre-season friendly away to Reading 3A on Saturday in a match that saw the visitors

HENLEY 3rds lost their final pre-season friendly away to Reading 3A on Saturday in a match that saw the visitors trailing 3-0 after just 10 minutes.

Henley re-grouped and eventually began to press Reading. Players began to get stronger on the ball as the game took on a different look.

Good inter-linking play down the right for Henley saw a pass across the circle just swept wide from debutant Katie White.

In the second half Henley reorganised the midfield and began to set up attacking opportunities. From one attack a short corner was awarded, with Cathy Brown pushing out a quick strike was reached by the keeper only for Brown to continue the play, moving in to lob the outstretched keeper for Henley’s goal. Reading scored their fourth goal from a short corner.
