If one leaves aside the Stewards Cup and the Henley Charity Cup, both of which involved the first team in playing only a one-off match, Henley Town have not yet won a trophy this season. Their last chance to remedy that will be on Sunday when the Sunday team oppose Reading United at Scours Lane (home of Highmoor-Ibis and Woodley United), in the final of the Ted Cambridge Cup, kick-off 3 p.m.
The sides both compete in Division 3 (East) of the Reading Sunday League, in which United have carried off the championship with Henley second. Last Sunday the Reading side won 3-0 on the Invesco Perpetual Triangle to go with a 4-1 win over the Town at Bishopswood earlier in the season.
It cannot have caused much surprise when the Red Kites’ manager Robbie Creech handed in his resignation last week at the end of a disastrous season. Several possible applicants have already expressed an interest in the post. Creech’s coach, Andy Findlay, has also resigned.
