IAN HARVEY KEEPS ‘WOOD ON WINNING TRAIL
HAM 2  NORTHWOOD 3


Northwood continued their fine run of Middlesex League results when they overcame a powerful Ham side at Richmond on Saturday. This was Northwood's fourth consecutive win and has put them well up in the League table, a position they could hardly have expected at the beginning of the season.

Ian Harvey added the title striker to that of midfield schemer, when he slammed home two goals far the Woods.
Northwood started well, with the forwards making position quickly and the Woods’ defence holding tight under the firm rein of Dibbens.

The visitors went ahead when Harvey beat two men, rode a tackle and crossed to Paul Byrne, who headed neatly past the keeper.

After the goal Ham fought back and a battle for supremacy in midfield resulted, with the home side coming out on top after their inside forward equalized with a glorious power drive.

But their supremacy was short-lived, with Harvey slipping in quickly to push a rebound shot from Dodd into the net.

A superb save by Woods’ keeper Byrne prevented Ham from equalising minutes before the interval.

After the break Ham pressed forward and equalised. But a spot kick from Harvey after a Byrne shot had been handled inside the area put the result beyond doubt.

Only Harefield have overcome Northwood in six games, but the team realises they still have a dour struggle ahead if they are to hold their present league position.

Northwood: R. Byrne, G. Harding, P. Madigan, D. Dibbens, P. Bailey. D. Godley, I. Harvey, S. Pearce, R. Dodd, P. Byrne, D. Horsford. Sub: G. Saunders.
