Hellenic League Division One East
Report by Ceri Jones
Virginia Water powered to their fourth successive win and sit proudly at the top of the league at this early stage, with an emphatic win over Henley Town.
It was not all one-way traffic in the first half, as Henley were very competitive, and prevented the home side from taking a hold of the game.
With Josh Guichard, Adam McNamara, Josh Hill, the energetic Paul Burrows all going close, it took a 30th minute penalty to give Waters the lead after Josh Hill had been brought down in the box.
Guichard converted from the spot, but the following fracas led to him and the Henley Town’s Kurt Mitchell Fitzgerald being sent off for a scuffle.
The first half then petered out without much else action of note.
On another hot day, Waters then imposed themselves on the game, and after hitting the post twice, further goals followed; the second when Burrows converted from the spot after Joe McBride was brought down after a great touch and turn in the box.
Burrows got another two late on to complete a deserved hat-trick and finish the scoring.
In between Adam McNamara also netted a hat-trick – his first goals of the season, with Adam Mills and Dan Whatford getting on the score sheet to complete the rout.
Waters’ terrific start to the season continues, which they hope to maintain next week when they travel to play Thame Rangers.
