GOAL HUNGRY YEADING HUNT LEAGUE TITLE
NORTHWOOD 1  YEADING 3

Playing their first Middlesex League game for six weeks, Yeading consolidated their position at the top of the table with Saturday’s fine win over local rivals Northwood. The game began at a fast pace, with Yeading soon putting the home defence under pressure.

Yeading forced several fouls early on, and home keeper Kessell was always in trouble with Norman Frape’s free-kicks. However, Kessell became the saviour of the side when he made a fine save from Frape.

After weathering the early pressure, Northwood began to settle down, and produced some good football of their own. Franklin, in particular, was causing the Yeading defence plenty of problems, then late in the first half Gould fired wide when well placed then Franklin shot straight at keeper Spurden with the goal at his mercy.

Five minutes into the second period a great ball from Norman Frape sent Morris away, and the striker found space before tucking the ball into the corner of Kessell’s net.

Yeading tightened their grip on the game, and the points looked to be heading their where when Norman Frape scored the second. That was confirmed when Sid Frape rifled home number three.

Northwood weren’t completely finished, though, and when Stone’s pass released Franklin, the tricky striker made weaved towards goal before sending his shot under keeper Spurden. But the points went to Yeading, who maintained their league leadership.

Northwood: Kessell, Harland, Harman, Gould, Heslop, Tidd, Franklin, Pearce, Clarke, Stone, Cooper, sub. Roberts.
