Bedfont Sports are the winners at The Skyline

The Woods went down to a disappointing Pitching In Isthmian League South Central defeat versus Bedfont Sports at The Skyline Roofing Stadium this evening..

Northwood took the lead through Josh Helmore on 38 minutes, and the referee inexplicably chose not to award them a penalty when the same player was upended in the box just before the break. The man in black did however award a spot-kick to Bedfont in the second period to enable them to draw level before they grabbed a late winner.

Woods remain in third place, but need to get back to winning ways at the weekend! The match report and photos are here.

Ten-man Northwood go down away to Leatherhead

Following a three-weeks break, the Woods finally got back into Pitching In Isthmian League South Central action this afternoon, and their rustiness showed as they were defeated 0-2 away to Leatherhead.

The home side went ahead just before the half-hour mark, adding a second goal ten minutes into the second period. A questionable red card issued to Brandon Kalu soon after made Northwood's hopes of getting back into the game more difficult, leaving the Woods to slip into third place in the league table.

This week's home fixtures with Bedfont Sports and Guernsey have now become even more crucial for the Woods' promotion hopes!

Midfielder George Nicholas is back with the Woods

The club are delighted to announce the return of George Nicholas to the Woods!

George originally joined Northwood from Wealdstone in January 2013 and the midfielder quickly established his place in the side. He had made one League appearance for Notts County before being released in 2012.

He played 116 games for Northwood from 2013-16, scoring 15 times, before moving onto Harrow Borough, Potters Bar and then Hanwell Town, whom he helped to promotion through the play-offs last season.

Welcome back George, we feel that you will play a key part in the second half of the campaign, coming in at a crucial time!
