The Wokingham Paper - - SPORT -

WOOD­LEY’S poor start to the sea­son con­tin­ued with a home thrash­ing against Mil­ton as Nathanael Robin­son came back to haunt his for­mer club with a hat-trick.

The Kestrels have lost ev­ery game un­der Jon Laugh­arne and River­moor of­fered no com­fort in their first home game of the cam­paign on Satur­day.

Just two min­utes were on the clock when Kieran Strange headed the vis­i­tors into the lead.

Wood­ley re­sponded well, go­ing close through Kai Par­ton-Edey and Toby Briggs.

But Mil­ton dou­bled their ad­van­tage on 26 min­utes as Henry Bone headed in from a corner.

Sam Guze and Par­ton-Edey both tried their luck as the hosts looked for an im­me­di­ate re­sponse but the half ended 2-0.

Laugh­arne made a tac­ti­cal switch at the break to 4-3-3 and it al­most paid div­i­dends with Jamie Smith, Par­ton-Edey and Liam

Wil­son all fir­ing off tar­get.

But the game was put to bed with 20 min­utes to play as Robin­son net­ted against the side he played for last sea­son from a free-kick.

And he was not done there, scor­ing twice more late on to add some gloss to the score and leave Wood­ley still seek­ing a first point of the sea­son. WOOD­LEY: Moore; Deans (Gil­bert 45), Hag­ger, Tit­comb (c); Smith; Freeth (Brown 75), Wil­son, Guze, Jewell; Par­ton-Edey, Briggs. Sub not used: Sis­sons. At­ten­dance: 58.
