MATCH REPORTS 1971-72

 


Thursday 19th August 1971
WORDSWORTH THE WOODS WINNER
C.A.V. 2   NORTHWOOD 4

Northwood were forced to play without five regular first-teamers in their friendly against Middlesex League newcomers C.A.V. on Thursday evening, and at times their unbeaten record seemed in danger.

Injuries robbed the Woods of Byrne, Myers and Madigan, while Harding and Millward were on holiday.

Early play saw the Woods on top, but it was C.A.V. who scored first, the Woods keeper Bowden being slow off his line to take a through ball.

Northwood were soon level when Wordsworth slipped the ball through for Pearce to run on and chip home.

The match was never played at full stretch, but when C.A.V. went back into the lead, Northwood stepped up the pace.

Harvey broke well on the right, and crossed hard and low for Senior to volley the ball in. All square at half-time, but as the second half progressed C.A.V.’s attacks became less frequent and Northwood forced more men into the front-line.

Pearce and Senior’s powerful running soon had the home defence split and stretched, giving Wordsworth freedom to roam.

And it was Wordsworth who sewed the game up with two well-taken goals.

Northwood: D. Bowden, D. Godley, B. Gould, D. Dibbens, P. Bailey, S. Senior, S. Pearce, I. Harvey, M. Chick, W. Wordsworth, A, Roche. Sub. P. Roche.
