Home draw for Woods in County quarter-final

Following our walkover victory against Hanworth Villa, the Woods have a home draw in the quarter-final of the Middlesex Senior Cup, in which they will take on Enfield Town.

Enfield Town play in the Pitching-In Isthmian League Premier Division, and were Northwood’s opponents when we last won the County trophy, 2-0 in 2016 thanks to goals from George Nicholas and Niko Muir.

The tie is scheduled for Tuesday 10th January; the other quarter-final fixtures are Wealdstone v Brentford B, Hampton & Richmond or Hayes & Yeading v Southall and Harrow Borough v Hendon or North Greenford.

Late goals give South Park the points at The Skyline

Two goals fairly late in the game saw the Woods go down to their first home Pitching In Isthmian League South Central defeat of the season against a South Park Reigate side which soaked up plenty of pressure in the latter stages of the game and went away with a 2-0 win.

Much of the afternoon's encounter was a tough midfield battle with neither side able to create many chances. But then a 20 yard South Park free-kick found the corner of the net on 75 minutes, and as Northwood pushed for a leveller, a quick break by the visitors was rewarded with the clinching strike three minutes into stoppage time.

It's second versus first at Marlow this afternoon!

Northwood's poor run of Pitching In Isthmian League South Central results away at Marlow continued this afternoon when they slumped to a 0-3 defeat in the league's second versus first clash.

The Woods still lead the table, but Marlow now trail by just four points, having played one fixture fewer. After an even first half, the home side took the lead just before the interval, but Northwood struggled to get going in the second half and Marlow wrapped up the points with two late goals.

Woods come from behind to win in Guernsey

The Woods' weekend on the Channel Islands proved fruitful, as they came from behind to defeat Guernsey 2-1 in their Pitching In Isthmian League South Central fixture yesterday.

The home side had struggled to get results on their own patch, but they took an early lead against Northwood, were who made to battle hard to justify their league leading position. And justify it they did, with two goals in six second half minutes, Riccardo Alexander-Greenaway and James Gurteen getting on the scoresheet!
