After last week's high-scoring defeat, Northwood tightened up at the back as they returned to Evo-Stik League action at Beaconsfield Sycob this afternoon in a Division One Central fixture - but although they kept a clean sheet, they also failed to net against the struggling home side.
It was Beaconsfield that created more in front of goal, but neither keeper was beaten throughout the 90 minutes, and on a cold afternoon the game ended goal-less. The match report and photos are here.
Dave Fox's reserve side trailed at half-time at home to Leverstock Green in the Suburban League, but hit back after the break to run out 2-1 victors - the winning goal coming well into stoppage time. Northwood goalscorers were Tobias Schweizer and Liam Baker.

We are very sad to report that George Price passed away earlier today, and our sincere condolences go to his family and friends.
George worked as physio at Chelsea FC, and took a similar role with the Woods in the 1990s; he was greatly respected by all who knew him - exemplified in 2006 when John Terry and Frank Lampard came to officially open the George Price Suite in the Northwood clubhouse.
May George rest in peace, he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Details of the funeral arrangements, when known, will be posted on this website.

The work to refurbish the Woods' clubhouse continues on schedule, with a new ceiling now installed in the rear function area (right photo), where the bar area has also been remodelled.
The old boardroom wall has been removed, as shown in left photo - all that remains is a clock on the wall and a football on the floor!
The work is expected to take several more weeks to complete, and we will continue to bring you progress reports here at northwoodfc.com. So keep an eye on this website!!

Having been without a fixture last weekend, Northwood were back in Evo-Stik League action this afternoon, and a goal-packed thriller saw them share eight goals away to Aylesbury United, who continue to groundshare at Leighton Town - unfortunately the Ducks netted five of them.
United found the net twice in the opening 19 minutes before Michael Murray fired home a free-kick on 27 minutes; Aylesbury replied a few minutes later but Niko Muir quickly responded for Northwood - only to see the home outfit net again to lead 4-2 at the break. It was on 86 minutes that Murray's second free-kick strike made it 4-3 - only for Aylesbury to have the final word and clinch the 5-3 verdict. The match report and photos are here.
Northwood reserves won 3-0 at home to Hartney Wintney in the Suburban League, Tobias Schweizer, Jamie McKay and Ryan Lee all on target. The Woods' Under 18s took a Ryman Youth League point on Thursday night in a 2-2 draw away to Wingate & Finchley, De Andre Johnson and Davantay Hastings on target: match report is here.

The much-anticipated refurbishment of the Northwood FC clubhouse facilities got underway yesterday morning - and the first task was the removal of the existing ceiling, as pictured here.
The work is expected to take several weeks to complete. There will be considerable disruption during this period, but we shall endeavour to keep some part of the club open whilst the work progresses, and we will bring you progress reports here at northwoodfc.com. So keep them peeled!!
