Woodley came from a goal down to defeat Chalvey Sports 2-1 and move into the third round of the Hellenic League Supplementary Cup.

The Kestrels trailed at half-time at Rivermoor Stadium but fought back to win with Harry Swabey and Teddy Thomas on target.

Looking to follow up on their victory at Wokingham and Emmbrook in midweek, Woodley made three changes with Tom Bryant returning in goal while Swabey and Pablo Fernandez also started.

Chalvey took the lead seven minutes before half-time when Bryan Taylor tucked home from the penalty spot.

That is how it stayed until the final 20 minutes of the contest where Jon Laugharne’s men rallied to equalise when Swabey fired in after an initial save from the Chalvey goalkeeper.

And they weren’t done there, sealing a 2-1 win when substitute Thomas tucked in after being teed up by Leon Mannion.

Woodley will now travel to fellow Division One East side Milton United in the next round with a date to be confirmed.

Laugharne’s charges are back in action tonight (Monday), hosting Premier Division side Ardley United in the Reading Senior Cup.
