This year’s Community Day is fast approaching – it is the day of the Woods' home Evo-Stik Southern League game versus Uxbridge on Saturday week, 14th March.
Admission for the game itself will be on a “Pay What You Can” basis, and there are plenty of events planned for the day. This includes a Sponsored Run which will be undertaken by all the players at the club, starting from the clubhouse and doing a circuit that involves running up to Northwood Hills, round the main street, back down the Pinner Road, before returning to the club; finishing with a lap of Northwood Park. A Grand Raffle is also being organised, with lots of prizes to be drawn on the day. Additionally, there will be a Northwood FC stall in the Town Centre on the day, and we hope that we can bring a large crowd down to the game.
The club does need to make this a successful day, with profits going towards the funding required to complete the refurbishment work in the clubhouse, so please do what you can to help!

A late goal from on-loan young Orient striker Victor Adeboyejo condemned Northwood to a 1-0 defeat in North Hertfordshire this afternoon at Royston Town in an Evo-Stik Southern League game.
There had been little goalmouth action at either end throughout the Central Division match until then, and the encounter - played on a bumpy pitch in a gusty wind - had looked to be heading for a goal-less draw until then. The match report and photos are here.
Northwood's second string continued their recent good run with a 2-1 home win against Camberley Town in the Suburban League, with Josh Lambe and Charlie Parker scoring the goals.

Northwood youngster Will Holland captained the Middlesex Under 16 side as they beat Sussex 2-1 at Uxbridge last week.
The game was the county team’s first South East Counties Championship match of the season, against a Sussex squad went into the game on top of the league table with two wins and a draw in previous outings.
After Sussex had taken a 20th minute lead, substitute Alfie Pope of NPL Youth equalised early in the second half before Bedfont Eagles’ Harrison Livingstone hit the winner with fifteen minutes remaining.
The Middlesex Under 16s play their next match in the competition this Sunday, 1st March, also at Uxbridge.

The Woods produced their worst display of the season today as they crashed to a 4-0 Evo-Stik Southern League defeat at Chestnut Avenue at the hands of a Leighton Town side who are struggling in the lower reaches of the Central Division.
Mark Burgess' side were lacking regular central defensive pair Steve Brown and Nick Turner - bringing in St Albans youngster David Longe-King on loan - but otherwise had a full strength squad available. However, Northwood didn't really get going all afternoon, and two Leighton goals in each half resulted in Woods' biggest home defeat since last April - and brought a shuddering halt to their recent good run of form and results.
The match report and photos are here. The full colour matchday programme can still be ordered online from our publications section.

Following the extensive refurbishment that the club has undertaken over the past couple of months, with just a few (but costly) items left to buy to finish the project, the Woods are looking for a sponsor for their planned VIP/Boardroom area in the back room.
This area will be sectioned off and will be for exclusive use, where appropriate, for functions and used as a matchday boardroom; it will have an upmarket feel to and it already benefits from its own lighting, heating and television. The television can also be used to advertise your name and or company; there is also the facility to place agreed acknowledgements around the club, in the official matchday programme and on the website.
Already, the refurbishment is proving to be a great success and the feedback has been brilliant and well received! This is your opportunity to get involved with the club and be part of its future success. Please email Ian Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.

Yesterday’s FA Sunday Cup Fifth Round tie between NLO and New Salamis at Northwood Park was an amazing match, watched by 40 or so spectators on a sunny and by no means chilly afternoon, reports the FA’s David Barber.
New Salamis were ahead inside three minutes, the home No 3 shinning a low cross into his own net. NLO (it stands for ‘North London Olympians’) scored twice in seven minutes midway through the first half but found themselves 4-2 down at the break.
They became increasingly desperate during the second period, trying shots from way out, and New Salamis looked as though they had weathered the storm. Then, in the last ten minutes, NLO scored twice to make it 4-4! There were no further goals in extra-time, two tired sides both coming close on countless occasions, and this breathless quarter-final went to penalties.
An NLO player’s kick cleared the bar by inches and New Salamis of the Cypriot Football League had won the shootout 4-3.

The Woods this afternoon played out a goal-less draw at Chalfont St Peter in an Evo-Stik Southern League fixture, to extend their run to just one defeat in twelve outings.
Northwood perhaps just edged the opening half, with Rob Hastings striking the bar after Michael Murray had set him up, but overall, a share of the spoils was about right. The match report and photos are here.
Northwood reserves' game against Newport Pagnell Town in the Suburban League was postponed as the Chestnut Avenue was waterlogged.

The Woods shared the Evo-Stik Southern League points with Barton Rovers at Chestnut Avenue this evening, as the teams drew their Central Division match 1-1.
The visitors shook Northwood by taking a 12th minute lead, but Dave Lawrence's strike on 40 minutes levelled the scores. Despite chances at both ends after the break, neither side was able to break the deadlock, and so it was a point apiece. The match report is here.
Northwood’s Under18s battled back from a two-goal deficit down to draw 2-2 at Camberley Town in a Ryman Youth fixture last night, Davantay Hastings and Conor Hynes on target.

Two first half goals earned Northwood all three points with a 2-0 victory in this afternoon's Evo-Stik Southern League local derby away to Hanwell Town.
Michael Murray put the Woods in front on 26 minutes with an excellent free-kick, and Niko Muir hit a cracking second goal a few minutes later, soon after Hanwell's Tom Duffy had been red-carded.
The match report and photos are here.
Northwood reserves won 3-2 at Hartley Wintney in the Suburban League, with goals from Alex Delasalle, Michael Elderfield and Adam Wais.
