Youth Reports 2016-17


16 October 2016

 

London Maccabi Lions 3   Northwood Reds Under 13s 0

A much improved team performance did not get the result that the boys deserved. Starting with a 4-5-1 line up with Rayyan in goal, a back 4 of Ale, Arun, Oliver and Lewis Ryan, George at CDM with Felipe and Dan Jago the other 2 CM's, then Lewis Reid on the left Dec on the right and Zaki taking on the lone striker role. Dan Terry was on the bench to start. The boys matched LML in the first half, in fact I think that they played the better football but we are still missing that threat in front of goal. All the approach play is good but no striking edge when we get near the goal this is not just down to your forward players but everyone we need to start making more chances. Having said this though, we did have a few efforts in the attacking third of the field but nothing really clear cut. I felt that the defence and midfield defended well and kept all LML efforts to mostly being long range efforts that did not really threaten our goal. So we came in at halftime level at 0-0.

The second half started well for us again playing some good possession football with the defence & midfield again linking up well to put pressure on LML defenders who seemed to prefer a more direct long ball approach. Maccabi were not making many chances as we were keeping all they punted up to us out until 10 minutes into the second half, when a deflected cross ballooned in the air and over Rayyan into the goal and we found ourselves 1-0 down much against the run of play. As what is becoming a bad habit we found ourselves 2 down only 3 minutes later a long ball over the defence found a LML forward who fired past Rayyan again. The boys did not give up and played some good attacking football going close on three or four occasions but again luck was not on our side  and then on the hour mark we found ourselves 3-0 down after LML again scored from another long ball over the top of our defence that was pushing on trying to get back into the game.

Overall this was such a better performance than last week and the boys showed real spirit and fight right to the final whistle. Well done all.

Line up: Rayyan, Ale Oliver, Arun , Lewis Ryan , George, Felipe, Dan Jago, Lewis Reid, Declan, Zaki, Sub Dan Terry. Player of the match Felipe.

Maccabi London Lions 5  Northwood FC Whites Under 8s 2

Northwood came up against stiff opposition from the start and were forced to defend early, with John making some great saves to keep them in the game. Their confidence grew with better possession and, against the run of play, Rian scored with a deflection of the Maccabi goal keeper after 10 minutes. Maccabi came back strongly and equalised two minutes before half time.  In the second half Northwood got off to a great start as Nathan put them 2-1 up. However, Maccabi scored three times in as many minutes and, from this point-on, Northwood were chasing the game as their opponents enjoyed better possession. Maccabi had a number of long range shots, which ultimately led to their fifth goal four minutes from time. Despite the result, this was an encouraging performance from Northwood and bodes well for future games as the team beds-in and they work on their tactics and team discipline.


U9 Blues vs Harvesters Panthers

The Blues recorded their first win of the season with a hard fought win over Harvesters Panthers. Despite an early goal by the opposition, the Blues recovered to lead 4-1 at half time through goals by Raman, Ethan (2) and Zak. There was some good passing and movement and lots of hard work on show. In the second half, the away team scored twice to come back to 4-3 and play was evenly balanced. Another goal from Zak sealed the result and the Blues can look back on a good match which will also give them confidence for the next match. Thank you to all the parents who came to support.


Northwood Reds U10's 4 AC Finchley North 3

The Northwood Reds U10's notched their 2nd win of the season 4-3 after a hard fought match against AC Finchley North. The boys played some great football in difficult conditions after going a goal down early Northwood rallied to go 2-1 up.
With goals from Louis & Freddie, Finchley levelled up a couple of times but goals in the 2nd half from Joe & Alex sealed the win for the reds.
Billy picked today's MOM award in what was a tough choice as all of the boys were brilliant.


Northwood FC, 2nd U11’s White Team Report, WFL Yellow Division
 From 2nd to 16th October 2016.

Our 4th game at home, on Sunday 2nd October, was another win. 6-1 against Brady Maccarbi. They were a good side, holding us in every area to the end of the first half. The second half saw us take some early chances and a flurry of goals. At 5 nil, it would have been a great result to keep a clean sheet, but was not to be.

5th game at home, Sunday 9th October, well could not have been more different. The game against Whetstone Wanderers Jaguars was very tough in the 1st half. It was tight and could have gone either way. They scored a soft goal when we were appealing the ball was off. They added a second very soft goal before the end of the first half. The talk at half time was not able to rally the players and they added a further two. They dominated the mid field and silly school boy errors allowed them to capitalise. We did have one success, preventing them from keeping a clean sheet., Benjamin had a great run to slot the ball past the opposition goalkeeper late in the second half. Small consolation.

Our 6th game this Sunday away, against Alexander Park South was our best result ever. After going one down through an long range shot the team could have thought that this was going to be another tough game. We equalised soon after adding three more before half time. Alexander came out strong in the second half, keeping us pinned in our half for the first 5 minutes. The next goal was going to be crucial to both sides. We got it, and with some fine passing extended our lead, eventually adding 5. Final score Alexander 1, Northwood 9. Great result with a 5 different scorers, Tommy getting our first hat trick this season.

Chorleywood Gunners U16s 0 Northwood Red U16's 0

On a very cold, wet and windy morning, we knew it was going to be a very tough Top of the Table Clash against last year's Double winner's (may of even been Treble winners). With a couple of boy's down and no striker we came out pretty strong, and with a lot at stake, there was a few crunching tackles put in, during the first half, but still, no one was giving in and at the break it was 0-0. Northwood seemed to have stepped up a gear in the second half, and with some nice football and some good passing into the box, we were very unfortunate not to take the lead. The Chorleywood boy's were beginning to panic (along with their Parent's) as Northwood dominated for the rest of the game, but, still couldn't break the deadlock. We were very unlucky to come away with just the one point, but, was a good result against last year's Champions and we were the ones with smiles on our faces.  #stillundefeated


Northwood Under 18 5   Enfield Town Youth   1
100% Home Record Continues

Clinical finishing was the real difference between the teams yesterday as we continued our 100% home record in all competitions. As the first half developed we began to take control of the midfield with Jamie and Aiden dominating and showing their strength. Two goals each from Peter and Lorenzo gave us a 4 0 lead going in to the half time break. The pick of the goals was a fantastic passing move with Lorenzo producing a peach of a cross for Peter to score with a neat volley at the near post. Fabulous stuff. The first half performance ensured we were able to give the whole squad some good game time with everyone playing almost a half each. Despite the threat of a comeback with an early second half goal, we stood strong. With 15 minutes to go, Jamie, our man of the match, rose highest from a pin point Peter corner to head the ball in for our fifth. We are very pleased with the development of the squad and now we need to transfer our home form to our away matches and look forward to starting that on Sunday with a visit to AFC Finchley North.
