Northwood Reds Under 13s 0  Bushey Rangers 2

After two good results in the League & Challenge cups our league form again did not match the boys’ potential. They did again start well and, as in the past 2 weeks, made some early chances but without ever giving the Bushey goalkeeper any real problems. On the eight minute Bushey took the lead through all I can say was a bit of a bizarre own goal: 0-1 Bushey . As in previous weeks this did seem to spur the boys on with more good possession and approach play but the final pass or shot was sadly missing.

The closest we went in the first half was great dipping free kick from Lewis Reid that bounced of the cross bar but unfortunately went to a Bushey defender who cleared well and the boys were closing in on him. The boys came in at half time 1-0 down. John and I did try to instill that again the next goal would be all important and if we could just get it right in the final third we would be right back in the game.

The boys started the second half well but Bushey were fired up and put us under quite a lot of pressure, with Rayyan making some good saves and the Northwood defence putting in a lot of hard work with last ditch challenges and blocks.

Bushey had been playing the same way throughout the game and this was putting a ball in just behind the defence for their strikers to run onto. It was from one of these passes that did eventually catch our boys out and they went 2-0 up barely 15 minutes into the second half. We did try and try and change the formation a bit but despite going close on a couple of further occasions we just could find the net.

Arun had a composed game at the back and so got today's player of the match, well done to him and the rest of the boys.

Line-up: Rayyan, Ale , Arun, Lewis Ryan, George, Oliver, Felipe, Dan Jago, Dan Terry, Lewis Reid, Declan Ben, Zaki.
