It was an afternoon to forget at Northwood Park as the Evo-Stik Southern League Central Division game against play-off chasing Bedworth United was abandoned after 58 minutes following a mass brawl. Daniel Dubidat had given the Greenbacks the lead on 30 minutes but was also the catalyst to the abandonment.
The goalscorer petulantly kicked out during a tussle with Steve Brown and was sent off. His reactions as he left the field resulted in the flashpoint. After a long delay of more than ten minutes, another three players were red-carded, two from the home side, while the Bedworth management team were both dismissed from the technical area.
When the visitors’ manager Stuart Storer refused to leave the spectating area behind the dugouts, the Referee decided that he couldn't continue the game in safety and blew the whistle to abandon play.
The match report and photos are here. A limited number of copies of the full colour matchday programme can still be ordered online from our publications section.

Two goals from Ismael Ehui saw the Woods take maximum points and complete an Evo-Stik Southern League double this afternoon when they won 2-0 at Marlow in a Division One Central fixture, having beaten the Bucks outfit 3-0 at home earlier in the season.
Ehui fired Northwood ahead in the 17th minute, with his second goal being an injury-time penalty right at the end of the game. The match report and photos are here.
Northwood's second string continued their excellent recent Suburban League form, when a first half goal from Charlie Parker enabled them to beat North Division leaders Berkhamsted 1-0 at Chestnut Avenue today; remarkably an eighth consecutive league victory for Dave Fox's side!

Northwood's reserve and Under 18s sides have enjoyed good runs in recent months, in both cases after difficult starts to their campaigns.
The Suburban League side moved into third place in the North Division table with a 1-0 win at Harefield United on Tuesday evening - Liam Baker getting the goal. That was the team's seventh successive league victory, dating back to early December. And this Saturday they have a crucial game against leaders Berkhamsted at Chestnut Avenue.
Meanwhile, the Ryman Youth League squad enjoyed their best win of the season at Northwood Park this evening, hammering Wingate & Finchley 6-1, to make it just one defeat in nine outings, and move into fourth in the West Division table. Davantay Hastings was on target twice, with DeAndre Johnson, Dylan Bahad, Denholm Walton and skipper Jamie Doolan all finding the net.

Michael Murray blasted home a penalty kick one minute into stoppage time to give the Woods all three Evo-Stik Southern League points this afternoon, as they ran out 2-1 winners against struggling Middlesex rivals AFC Hayes at Chestnut Avenue.
The Brook went ahead on 20 minutes when Ryan Debatista saw Berkley Laurencin save his spot-kick, but the Hayes striker knocked home the rebound. Six minutes later Ismael Ehui equalised for Northwood - and the scores stayed level until dead-ball expert Murray's late winner.
Liam Baker hit a hat-trick as Northwood reserves moved into fourth place in the Suburban League with a 4-1 victory at Leverstock Green; Josh Lambe was also on target.
