Henley Town have no match this Saturday but are away to Chalfont Wasps on Tuesday in Division 1 East of the Uhlsport Hellenic League, kick-off 7.30 p.m. The match will be played at Amersham Town F.C.
The form result would be a postponement, for this is the fourth time the game has been listed, and the teams have yet to take the field. Wasps have had many problems this season with their pitch at Chalfont St Giles, which was twice unfit when they should have entertained Henley. As their ground also has no floodlights, they had arranged to play some evening games at Amersham, but Spratley’s Meadow was also waterlogged when the Red Kites were scheduled to play there recently. To add to Chalfont’s problems, Finchampstead failed to a raise a team for their meeting last Saturday, and, though the Berkshire club will presumably be fined, that will not help Wasps diminish their fixture congestion.
Chalfont also remain the most unpredictable club in the league, as evidenced again in their last two outings when they lost 6-3 at home to Rayners Lane only to draw the return fixture on their opponents’ ground a week later. Meanwhile, Henley, whilst they concentrated on the Reading Senior Cup last weekend, fell to third position in the league table.
All Town supporters will wish Dimitrios Kyriatzis the best of luck now that he has been signed up for Brentford’s academy side. He had been training with Brentford all season, and the club’s coaches have now promoted him, saying that he had increased his confidence following his spell at Henley. Kyriatzis only reached his seventeenth birthday after having played several games for the Red Kites, and his replacement last Saturday, Nathan Dow, is also only 17 and has been playing in the youth and reserve teams at Tadley Calleva.
The Sunday team make the short journey to Bishopswood this weekend for a league fixture against S.C. United, kick-off 10.30 a.m.
