MATCH REPORTS 1971-72

 


Monday 27th December 1971
FIVE-GOAL WOODS TOP THE TABLE
RUISLIP TOWN 2 NORTHWOOD 5

The goals continued to pour in as Northwood climbed to the top of the Middlesex League following Monday’s workmanlike win over neighbours Ruislip Town.
Northwood started the match as though they hadn’t heard of Christmas goodwill. They tore into the opposition, and although the mud prevented good football, Woods’ strikers battled well in the conditions.
Paddy Coburn was a real thorn in the home side, but it was ex-Town strikers Senior and Wanless who started the goal spree.
The first came after 6 minutes as Steve Pearce ran from his own half, and played a great ball to Senior, who crossed, and Wanless rose to head a fine goal.
Then after 18 minutes Coburn showed superb control as he ploughed past two men before hammering over a low cross. Senior swept into the six-yard box and hammered in a great volley.
Gould had an excellent game in mid-field alongside Burt, and John Myers was masterful in the back four, as Woods sought to add to their tally before half-time.
In fact, Ruislip netted a shock goal after the break when Rothwell headed in from a corner.
But before Ruislip could get back into the game, Wanless scored a magnificent goal when he beat three men before firing home a vicious drive from an acute angle.
After this the game deteriorated, the mud spoiling things, Ian Harvey suffering as his neat touches were getting stuck.
Town pulled another goal back, but then Harvey was pulled down following a neat move, and he scored from the free-kick. Before the end Barry Wanless took the chance to grab goal number five.
Northwood: Byrne, Harding, Myers, Gould, Wickison, Burt, Harvey, Pearce, Coburn, Wanless, Senior, sub. Roberts.
