Match Report
by Robin Piper

 

Northwood signed off for the summer by coming from a goal behind to share the spoils with the students from Bath.

With Bath safely in the play-offs, their team was much changed, whilst Woods welcomed back skipper Wayne Carter and Ryan Tackley.

Both sides made a bright start, Tackley trying his luck from distance, whilst Woods ‘keeper Bill Fishenden held onto a shot from David Bailey.

And Northwood should have taken the lead on 12 minutes, Jerome Hall playing in Peter Dean, who was denied by ‘keeper Ali Hines, and Hall blasted the follow-up wide with the goal at his mercy.

Woods were enjoying a good spell, Shipperley rising well at the far post to head down Danny Murphy’s free-kick, Hines fumbling the ball before recovering whilst under pressure from Dean.

However, after the positive start, Northwood were gradually forced onto the back foot and they fell behind to a goal on 19 minutes, substitute Josh Llewelyn running through a square defence before rolling the ball past Fishenden.

Fishenden was called into action minutes later as he saved bravely at the feet of Bailey, Matt William putting the loose ball wide of the target.

The visitors had further chances through Bailey and Matt William before half-time whilst Hall sent a header into the side-netting after latching onto Murphy’s hanging cross.

Bath were quickly out of the blocks after the break, Williams shot on the turn too close to Fishenden before Joe Lang dragged his shot wide.

The game seemed to petering out as both teams tired in the warm conditions. But after Elliot Buchanan was introduced for defender Perry Norman just after the hour mark, the Woods began to threaten the visitors.

And it was Buchanan who put his team back on level terms after he latched onto Hall’s flick-on before firing emphatically past Hines.

Bath almost posted an immediate reply, Fishenden producing a flying save to turn away Bailey’s 25-yard volley.

Chances were being created at either end, Carter and Hall shooting wide for Woods, whilst Tackley was on hand to block a shot from the lively Bailey.

However, Bath restored their lead with five minutes left on the clock, William being given time to pick his spot past Fishenden.

But Northwood weren’t to be denied, and they got their reward in the 87th minute, the ball falling to Dean in the box following a throw-in, and the Northwood striker making no mistake to restore parity.

Harry Hunt and Dave Nolan were introduced for Hall and Carter for the closing minutes but there were no additions to the score line as the curtain finally came down on a long hard season.
