Mark Burgess saw red this afternoon in the closing stages of his side's Southern League Division One Central fixture at Daventry Town, but Northwood held on for a point from a goal-less draw.
The Woods player-boss was dismissed for a foul when he was the last man, but the Northants outfit were unable to take advantage of their numerical superiority, and the Northwood side were delighted to earn the draw.
Woods reserves played Harefield United at Northwood Park in the Suburban League. The Under 18s gained their first Ryman Youth League win of the season on Thursday night as they raced into a four-goal lead against Staines Town at Chestnut Avenue before conceding twice late on. Davantay Hastings netted twice, with Kyle O'Connor and Gerry Gallen also getting on the scoresheet.
