The Woods slipped to a narrow Evo-Stik Southern League Division One Central defeat away to Marlow this afternoon.
The Buckinghamshire side took a second minute lead through Anaclet Odhiambo, and they held their lead until the break. Myles Stephenson came off the subs bench to crash home Northwood's equaliser on 71 minutes, only for Odhiambo to net again seven minutes later - and that goal was enough to earn the points for the home side by a 2-1 margin. The match report and photos will be online later.
Woods' Under 21s crashed to a 2-6 defeat at the hands of Bracknell Town Under 21s at Chestnut Avenue in a Suburban League fixture.

The Woods chalked up their first Evo-Stik Southern League victory of the season this afternoon, when a first half Louis Stead goal won the points at Bedford Town in a Division One Central fixture.
The Northwood midfielder steered the ball home after 29 minutes, and that strike proved to be the match winner - although Stead went so close again soon after, whilst Ryan Debattista also had a great chance to extend the lead. The match report is here.
Woods' new Under 21 side drew 2-2 at home to Godalming Town in their opening Suburban League fixture, having led by two goals shortly before the interval.

Northwood gave a battling performance this evening as they took a point from a 1-1 draw away at Egham Town in an Evo-Stik Southern League fixture.
Manager Mark Burgess named an unchanged starting team from that which suffered Saturday's disappointing opening day reverse, and it was the player-boss himself who earned his side a draw when he levelled for the Woods with a header from a corner with ten minutes left.
Former Northwood striker Chris Moore had given the home side the lead, also following a flag kick, nine minutes earlier. The full match report is here.
Northwood will travel to Sun Sports in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup on Saturday week after the Spartan South Midlands League outfit defeated London Tigers 2-0 in a replay this evening.

The Woods had a difficult start to the new Evo-Stik Southern League season this afternoon, as newly-promoted Ashford Town collected all three points from the Central Division fixture at Northwood Park as they ran out 3-1 winners.
Northwood boss Mark Burgess has seen most of last season's Middlesex Cup-winning squad move on, and there were six debutants in his starting line-up - with three more new faces on the bench. Play was fairly even until Dan Fleming gave the visitors a 23rd minute lead and eleven minutes later Mark Bidmead converted a penalty to increase their lead.
On the stroke of half time Mark Burgess pulled a goal back after James Budden knocked the ball across goal, but a 55th minute long-range effort that beat keeper Thomas Spenser at his near post wrapped up the points for Ashford. The match report and photos are here.

The new Evo-Stik season gets underway this Saturday, and Woods manager Mark Burgess has had his work cut out to rebuild his squad, following the departure of no less than eight of our usual starting line-up from last term, all of whom are currently trying their luck at Step 3. Steve Brown, Andy Lomas, George Nicholas and Max Holland have joined Harrow Borough, Berkley Laurencin and Niko Muir are at Hendon, Rob Hastings has joined Wingate & Finchley, Joakim Ehui has been training with Hayes & Yeading while Bayley Brown is currently playing for Staines Town.
Additionally, Mark’s assistant Simon Huggett has had to take a step back from things due to work and family responsibilities, so Burgo has brought in brothers Paul and Mark Faulkner to assist him this season. Paul was previously Manager at Leverstock Green and Welwyn Garden City while Mark has been a coach with Harrow Borough and QPR in the past. We welcome them to the club and hope they enjoy the season while also thanking Simon for his work over the past few years.
