U8’s Red

A crisp but sunny Sunday morning the Under 8's Reds had a 10am KO home fixture against Harvesters Jaguars. With a full squad in attendance we were warmed up and raring to go.

The match started quickly with some great tackles early on. Mason solid as goalkeeper with Alex and Zak  defending in front, there was Alfie and Shaquan leading the line upfront. The first goal came from a cross and the visitors were in front, however this didn't last long as a tackle from  the middle sent Shaq away to finish coolly under the keeper 1-1. 3 subs were made Verity, Harry and Blake came on to give fresh legs... It was 2-2 by the half time break, Alfie finishing from close range. The half time talk about passing more to each other was quickly taken on board as a great pass from Shaq to Mason (having swapped from keeper) made in 3-2 and then more passing from Zak to Shaq to get his  brace (4-2).

We seemed to ease a little and 2 goals from the opposing team brought it back level to 4-4 with a few  minutes left - when good pressure play by Shaq and Alfie put Zak through his shot looked to have been  saved but the power allowed it to hit the keeper and the back of the net. Wild scenes (including spectators!)
Harry, Blake and Verity were back on kept things solid to see out the dying minutes. Great result and great performance. 5-4 to Northwood Reds. Grass root football at its very best.

U9's Blue vs Potters Bar Crusaders

The Blues had yet another away game, this time at Potters Bar. They started the game somewhat unfocused which let to an immediate chance for the home team. They quickly recovered though and a competitive and very even game developed with chances at both sides. Rafi had a free kick saved onto the bar and the Blues pushed for the winner in the last couple of minutes of the match but it ended in a credible 0-0. It was good to see that the boys are developing their skills and match experience and the focus in training this week will be on positioning and movement to continue the progress.

U10’s Red

After a very tough start to the season Northwood Reds U10's gained a well-deserved away victory  over Edmonton Rangers Dragons 5-4, with a full squad available all the boys played there part in a  thrilling match. It was a slow start from the Reds going 2-0 down but once they started to play football  the game changed with goals from Louis, Billy and a fine hat trick from Ryan completed a great  comeback.

U10’s White

Today's result 3-3 at home to Hadley and Wingate Hawks. I think boys did well considering our keeper called in sick an hour before kick-off... Nathan Law was entrusted as back up keeper which he did an extraordinary job earning him man of  the match. Overall disappointed we didn't win as felt we could of taken this team if the boys played at their best  but considering the lack of a proper keeper and change of formation happy with the draw and  maintaining our un beaten run. Roll on next week.

U16’s Red

With four boys out with injury, we turned up with the bare minimum. With a one o'clock kick off,  the boy's came out a bit tired looking. One Manager out doing course work and the other rushing  from his other game in Edmonton to meet us in St Albans, I took the warm up. A bit slow to  start, we had a few shots on goal, but, couldn't get the ball in the back of the net. Twenty five  minutes in, Connor hits a great volley, only for it to hit the post. With ten minutes to the break, Harvesters hit a superb strike to go 1 up. With some nice passing and good team work, a corner  in from Tom and a bit of a scramble in the box, Callum gets a foot in to draw level. With four  minutes to go a first time ball from Khye, controlled by Connor in front of goal, rather than being  greedy, squares it across the box for Cameron to hit a late winner. Final score Harvesters 1  Northwood 2. That's four games, 28 goals with only 1 conceded. Well done boys keep up the  good work.

WFL Challenge Cup Under 18
Northwood create the perfect strike
Northwood 10 Borehamwood 2000 1

The under 18’s played the perfect game in dismantling Borehamwood 2000 to move to the next round in a  scintillating attacking display. Dominating the midfield they limited the opposition to only one shot on goal  and were themselves ruthless in finding the back of the net. What was most pleasing was the range of  goals scored including long range strikes from Cathal and Peter, sumptuous passing moves and ruthless  finishing in the box with five different players on the scoresheet with Lorenzo bagging four. Back to the  league next week with a crucial away game against second placed Brady Macabbi to consolidate a solid  start in the league.
