Woods play Middlesex derby tonight

It's a rare midweek Bostik League fixture for the Woods this evening, as they play a Middlesex derby away to Hayes & Yeading United.

The side from the south of the Borough are strong favourites for promotion from the South Central Division, although they suffered their first league defeat at Waltham Abbey ten days ago. Last season Northwood were winners in the home fixture whilst Hayes & Yeading were successful on their own patch; the Woods of course have a completely different squad from last time around!

Kick-off is 7.45 p.m. at Beaconsfield Road, off Springfield Road, Hayes, Middx UB4 0SL, which is here.

Molesey are hit for six

Northwood romped to an impressive 6-1 Bostik League victory over Molesey at Chestnut Avenue this afternoon.

The win over the division's bottom-markers was the Woods' largest scoreline for almost exactly two years - they beat Histon 6-0 on 27 September 2016.

Matt Cooper gave the Woods an 11th minute lead when his 20 yard free-kick evaded everyone to find the net, and seven minutes later James Ewington netted the first goal of his first-half hat-trick, the further strikes coming on 31 and 40 minutes.

The visitors' cause wasn't helped by Manny Quarshie receiving the second of two yellow cards just before the break, but although Jorome Slew made it 5-0 on 56 minutes, Molesey pulled one back through Dylan Cascoe in the 71st minute. However, Northwood had the final say, skipper Carl Pearce heading home in the last minute. The match report and photos are here; post-match interviews with Dean Barker, Jorome Slew and Carl Pearce are live at WoodsTV.

Velocity Trophy win for the Woods

Northwood moved into the second round of the Velocity Trophy (aka Isthmian League Cup) with a good 2-0 victory against Bury Town at Northwood Park this evening.

The Woods were particularly impressive in the opening half-hour of the game, during which time they dominated and might have scored more than the 12th minute James Ewington strike that gave them a deserved lead. Bury forced their way more into the game as it progressed, but Ewington doubled the home side's advantage two minutes before the break with another classic James finish.

The second half was pretty even, with both keepers making decent saves, but there was no addition to the scoring. Woods will travel to Felixstowe & Walton United in the second round, after the Suffolk side knocked out AFC Sudbury on penalties. The match report is here.

Young Woods bow out of FA Youth Cup

The Woods Under 18s were involved in an exciting FA Youth Cup tie at Colney Heath this evening, and there were a couple of early efforts for the Woods, James Bromley-Price having a shot pushed wide, Kyran Worrell firing just wide and then Jordan Coles shot straight at the keeper.

Woods ‘keeper Caolan Doyle made a good save from Harry Ronald, and then on 38 minutes James Bromley-Price fired the Woods ahead. Soon after, Connor Maher forced the home keeper into a double save.

The home side, who had won by a double-figures scoreline in the previous round, increased the pressure after the break, and they equalised on 78 minutes through Joe Newton; soon after Caolan Doyle kept Northwood level when he saved at the feet of Newton. So the game went into extra time, nine minutes into which a calm finish from Harry Shepherd put the home side ahead. The Woods were unable to find their way back into the tie, and Colney Heath progress to the next round.

Northwood: Caolan Doyle, Dan Cresswell (James Fitzgerald 63m), Kieran Ali, Ayo Fasanya, Callum Bedwell, Sam Netscher, Kyran Worrell (Joe Manning 41m), Jordan Coles, Ollie Lawford, James Bromley-Price (Dylan Young 70m), Connor Maher. Subs. Joel Smith.

Northwood lose away to Bracknell

The Woods were back in Bostik League this afternoon, away to South Central leaders Bracknell Town. And they got off to the worst possible start, going behind in the first attack with just 40 seconds on the clock.

Northwood gradually recovered their composure and settled into the match, which developed into a fascinating encounter. It was, however, Bracknell who were next to score, seven minutes into the second period, when Adam Cornell - briefly a Woods player eleven years ago - hit a great strike into the top corner.

Woods did have some good chances to get back into the game, but it was two minutes into stoppage time when Luke Alfano crashed home a tremendous long-range strike, and Bracknell maintained their 100% record with their 2-1 victory. The match report and photos are here.

Northwood manager Dean Barker said afterwards: "It's no disgrace losing 2-1 to the 100% league leaders on their artificial pitch. We are creating opportunities to score, but need to tighten up defensively."

Woods lose in Emirates FA Cup replay

Northwood went out of the Emirates FA Cup this evening, as they went down 3-1 at Kings Langley in their First Qualifying Round replay.

The Southern League Premier side took the lead after just five minutes, and were three up inside the opening half hour, after which it was always going to be an uphill battle for Dean Barker's side.

But the young Woods side came more into it after the break, and their hopes were raised when Miguel Lopez De Matos drove the ball home in the 50th minute. However, despite going close on a few occasions, Northwood were unable to add to their tally, so Kings Langley progress to the next round. The match report is here.

Woods at home if....

The draw for the Second Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup was made at lunchtime today, and if the Woods are successful in their replay at Kings Langley tomorrow evening, they will play at home to the winners of the Lewes v Farnborough re-match.

The sides drew 2-2 on Saturday, with Bostik Premier outfit Lewes twice leading and were twice pegged back by Farnborough, of the Evo-Stik South Premier. The teams replay at The Dripping Pan on Wednesday.

Not such an attractive draw, though, in the second round of the Velocity Trophy (League Cup)! The winners of next week's Northwood v Bury Town tie will play away to the either Felixstowe & Walton United or FC Sudbury.

Club's 90th anniversary on Saturday

This Saturday, 8th September, marks the 90th anniversary of the club's first-ever competitive match.

There had been previous shortlived football clubs bearing the town's name, but our club was formed in 1926 though for the first two seasons played only friendly matches. Known at that time as Northwood United, the club were elected to Division Two of the Harrow & District League for 1928-29, playing at the new Northwood Playing Fields, which was adjacent to Haste Hill golf course, at the end of The Drive, Northwood.

Northwood United played their first-ever league match on Saturday 8th September 1928 at Pinner Green against Pinner Gas Works and were successful in gaining their first two points with a 2-0 victory, Dick Allen scoring both goals. The club finished fifth in their first season, and gained promotion to Division One a year later. The "United" suffix was dropped in 1946 when the club restarted after World War II.

Waltham Abbey take the points with 2-0 win

Dean Barker's Northwood side slipped to a 2-0 defeat this afternoon at the hands of Waltham Abbey at Chestnut Avenue, as they went down to their second successive Bostik League defeat.

The experienced and physically strong Waltham Abbey side went ahead through Ronnie Winn in the 15th minute, and although there was a hint of offside, there was no flag from the linesman. The second goal came Charlie Stimson on 78 minutes, and although the Woods had a strong penalty appeal for handball, again the linesman's flag stayed firmly by his side. It was a tough game for Northwood, and one that Dean Barker will be looking for his side to learn from.

The match report and photos are here.
