It's back to Evo-Stik Southern League football for Northwood this afternoon, when they make a trip into Hampshire to play Fleet Town in a Central Division fixture.
Fleet have been located in the league's South & West Division for the past two seasons; the Woods did the double when the clubs last met, in 2012-13, and Mark Burgess will be looking to continue that record as his side seek their first Southern League victory since August.
Kick-off is 3.00 p.m. at Calthorpe Park, Crookham Road, Fleet, Hampshire GU51 5FA, which is here. Woods' second string entertain Kings Langley at Chestnut Avenue in the Suburban League, also at 3.00 p.m.
Northwood's Under 18s went out of the F.A. Youth Cup on Thursday evening, when two goals in each half eased St Albans City to a comfortable victory at Northwood Park.

The Woods are in FA Youth Cup action this evening when they take on Conference South club St Albans City at Northwood Park in a second qualifying round tie which kicks-off at 7.30 p.m.
The Ryman Youth League squad is managed by Garry Moriarty, Richard Elderfield and Mark Fox, with the administration of the team managed by Tom Holder. It is virtually a new youth squad this season as many of last year’s side have either gone to university or moved up to the reserves and first team squads.
The current squad is developing very well, with many of the lads having come through the Northwood youth set up: Pearse White, Louis Moriarty, Michael Brown, George Adams, and Ross Golding remain from last season’s squad, being supplemented by players coming through from last season’s Sunday Under 16s team, including Phil Daniels, Will Holland, Freddie Buckley and Ben Spires.
Northwood drew 2-2 with St Albans in a pre-season friendly in early September, so will be hoping to improve on that result tonight; the prize for the winners is an away game in two weeks’ time against Hayes & Yeading, who won 1-0 at Wealdstone on Tuesday evening. In the previous round, the Woods defeated Ashford Town 2-0, whilst St Albans saw off North Greenford with a 5-3 margin.
Please get along to Northwood Park to support the team this evening; admission costs £4 adults, £2 concessions, with Under 16s free.

An equaliser from Jon Munday two minutes into stoppage time earned the Woods an F.A. Trophy Preliminary Round replay against fellow Evo-Stik Southern League Central Division club Potters Bar Town at Northwood Park today.
Former Northwood striker Dave Lawrence had opened the scoring for the visitors in the first minute of the tie, and despite Woods enjoying the lion's share of the play, they couldn't find the net - until that late, late leveller. The match report and photos are here.
Woods' second string were beaten 2-1 away to North Greenford in a Suburban League fixture, Michael Elderfield on target for Northwood.
