MATCH REPORTS 1971-72

 

Saturday 9th October 1971
A TONIC WIN FOR WOODS
RAYNERS LANE 1  NORTHWOOD 3

At last Northwood are beginning to find their true form and they proved this on Saturday with a. fine Middlesex League win at Rayners Lane.

The Woods needed this win to boost their morale, which has been flagging of late, and straight from the kick-off they went all-out on attack.

New-boy Paddy Coburn made an impressive debut with some forceful running up front, and he was ably supported by Barry Wanless.

Northwood went close on several occasions, and the promptings of Harvey were matched by the enthusiasm of Pearce and Gould. With the visitors so much in command it came as no surprise when Madigan nodded them ahead.

Ten minutes later, remarkable display of post-hitting and bar-rattling by Gould led to Northwood's second goal.

Gould rose to head a cross on to the bar, hammered the rebound against an upright and when the ball came out for a second time, he headed it against the crossbar again before Paddy Coburn rushed in to nod home.

The match ended as a contest when Barry Wanless caught the home side's defence flat-footed and lashed the ball in from 18 yards, and the first half ended with Northwood on the offensive.

Woods relaxed in the second half, and the play lost some of its edge. Despite this, Northwood were never in any real trouble, and when Rayners Lane managed to pull one back following a defensive error, it was far too late to matter.

Northwood: Byrne; Harding, Madigan, Myers, Taylor, Harvey, Gould, Pearce, Wanless, Coburn, Senior.
