WOODS ARE ONE STEP CLOSER
NORTHWOOD 4  HARROW ST MARY’S 1

Northwood took another step towards Middlesex League honours on Saturday when they took two points off local rivals Harrow St. Mary.

The Woods were never as their best, and the closer they edge towards the chance of the league and cup double, so anxiety has gripped their game.

On Saturday it was the visitors who settled first and they took the game to the re-organised Woods, who were without O'Donnell. However the Northwood side weathered the early storm and came back to stretch the visitors.

The ball was being moved around well by both sides, but when they approached the penalty box, it was Northwood who looked the more dangerous.

Nevertheless, it was the visitors who grabbed the lead after 35 minutes and it followed an uncharacteristic error by the Woods. A ball was crossed from the right and although Heslop won the touch, he deflected it goalwards where Currell was caught by surprise and could only help the ball into the net.

This stung Northwood into action and in the ten minutes to half-time they had regained the lead. A corner was won on the right and from the ensuing kick Merison was on hand to half-volley the ball home for his first goal for the Northwood club.

Only two minutes later Northwood were in front. Harman made the initial break from defence and hit a deep cross that Livingstone headed against the crossbar. Cooper was on the spot to head the rebound home.

The Woods were fortunate to turn round in front, but after the interval they took command. Livingstone scored a fine header after a neat cross by Manley, and then Ellis once again showed his prowess around the box when he turned a half-chance into the fourth goal.

Northwood: Currell, Mills, Heslop, Merison, Harman, Harvey, Tidd, Gould, Livingstone, Ellis, Cooper, sub. Manley.
