Henley U10s Hockey Girls Only Lose to Reading at Marlow Tournament

Henley U10 girls attended their third tournament of the season at Marlow on Sunday, missing their coach and a strong player to illness.  After a last minute reshuffle of the team positions, and thanks to Isabelle Woolfrey for joining the team Henley started strong with a win over Wycombe with a goal from Nancy Gillingham. Niamh, Alex and Nancy worked tireless in the midfield to support their defence of Lilian and Gemma, but conceded 2 goals in the next match to a very determined Reading side.  The forwards (Isla, Isabelle and Georgie) were rewarded for their persistence with a goal for Isla against Marlow 2 and another win.  They managed to keep a clean sheet in their final game against Marlow and salvage a draw, thanks to the numerous saves on the goal line by the defence.

The team: Forwards:  Georgie Pike , Isla Forrest, Isabelle Woolfrey Midfield: Niamh Mckenzie, Alex Forehand, Nancy Gillingham Defence: Lilian Graham & Gemma Chidwick

Results as follows:
Henley vs Wycombe – won 1-0 (Nancy)
Henley vs Reading 1 –  lost 0-2
Henley vs Marlow 2  – won 1-0 (Isla)
