Weekend Preview

By Chris Burnett

Games to be played 9-11 March

The first team are without a match at the weekend but host Didcot Town Development on Monday evening. Despite being in the second week of March this will be the first time the teams have met this season. Both sides are going through a rough patch with Woodley losing five of their last six and Didcot defeated four times in their last half dozen games.

An incredibly exciting back and forth match last Saturday saw the Royals into the semi finals of the Reading Invitation Junior Cup. Leading by two goals they were pegged back, with opponents Newbury equalising in the last minute. The drama didn’t end there as four minutes into added time a Ben Anderson penalty put United through. Their next game is a home league fixture against Mortimer.

The ‘A’ team have a massive match this weekend when they go to Henley Town. This is second hosting first. A win for Woodley will see them promoted and on the brink of the title whilst defeat will see Henley close the gap to three points with a couple of games in hand. Woodley came out on top when the sides last met; winning 2-1 in the home match at the start of January.

Sunday Teams

Failure to win will see the first team finish bottom of the Reading & District Sunday League Division One. A tough campaign has seen United lose eleven out of eleven. They are away at Woolhampton Cricket a side they play again at the end of the month.

With two out of the three teams from Crowthrorne folding over the course of the season the reserves find themselves in the bottom three. They are one point ahead of Winkfield and have a six point cushion over the basement side with a vastly superior goal difference over both teams. Sundays game sees Woodley go to leaders Finchampstead Athletic Sunday Reserves.
