Henley Athletic consolidated their second spot in the SIL Senior Divsion with a solid 4-0 win at fifth-placed Haughley United.

It was Haughley who spurned the best chance of the opening stages when the tricky Wharton-Richardson weaved down the left and into the Henley box, only to blaze over from 10 yards.

As it transpired this was a costly miss as on 30 mins Caraccio winning the ball back on the edge of the Haughley box, he found White who laid it off to Clark Bruce, who drove home from the edge of the area for 1-0.

Early into the second half a 25 yard low shot from Thomas Jackson went straight through Young and into the net for 2-0.

Five minutes some good passing found Ben Golding enter the box wide right and drive in a low shot, before Bruce added a second to seal the three points.
