This was 1st v 4th and a win today would have seen Henley crowned as champions in their first season in the top division of the Suffolk & Ipswich League. They came into the game 5 points clear of second placed Achilles, both teams having two games to play, but Achilles with the far superior goal difference.
Henley came into this on the back of 18 consecutive league wins, which is even more remarkable considering this was their first home game for nine weeks !
They really struggled today and never looked like winning, although they came out in the second half and really gave it a go, but when Bramford went in front for the second time, courtesy of a cracking 30 yard shot that dipped over the ‘keeper, it was pretty much game over.
The title is really up for grabs now, as Henley entertain third placed Crane Sports next Saturday, where they will probably need all 3 points to pip Achilles, as they have two winnable games to play. They visit third bottom Wenhaston United on Wednesday evening, then host tenth placed Haughley United on the Saturday.
