The Woods have been honoured – twice over – by The FA and its Community Partner, McDonald’s, in the 2016 FA Community Award. Six clubs and individuals from across Middlesex have been named as the county winners of this year’s awards.
Northwood FC has won the FA Charter Standard Community Club Award, whilst Richard Elderfield is the winner of the People’s Choice Award for Outstanding Contribution to Community Football, so congratulations to Richard, and to all who have contributed to the club’s award.
The winners, who have been recognised for their commitment to grassroots football, were selected as winners by a panel of Middlesex FA and McDonald’s representatives following a seven week public nomination period; the winners will now be shortlisted for the 2016 Regional FA Community Awards, where they will be judged alongside other county winners to represent Middlesex in the National Awards shortlist.
Peter Clayton, Chief Executive of Middlesex FA, said “The grassroots awards are a chance for us to recognise those volunteers, coaches and clubs that sacrifice so much throughout the year and say thank you to them. Without them we wouldn’t have safe and structured environments where youngsters can develop their footballing talent. We are delighted that The FA and McDonald’s have provided us the opportunity to recognise them through The FA Community Awards and we wish them all the best at regional and hopefully national stages of the Awards.”

The club's awards and presentations event was held in @TheWoods, the Northwood FC clubhouse, last night and the trophies were presented to the first team, reserves, and Ryman Youth squad.
For the third season running, one Northwood player dominated the annual presentation evening and, following goalkeeper Berkley Laurencin and skipper Steve Brown, the consistent performances at left-back of Andy Lomas saw him earn the three top prizes. Andy collected the Manager's Player of the Year, the Players’ Player of the Year and Supporters’ Player of the Year trophies, a great achievement for the defender who played in every game throughout the season.

Northwood’s Under 18s ended their season this evening with a 2-2 in their prestige friendly at Northwood Park against Barnet’s Under 18 Academy side.
Andy Ali gave the Woods youngsters the lead, but the visitors levelled before the half-time break.
County call-up Ali put Northwood ahead again on 55 minutes, but although Barnet equalised for a second time, the game saw a good performance from the Woods to wrap up the campaign.

The Woods brought a good season to a close in style this afternoon, as they won the Middlesex Senior Cup for only the second time in the club's history. A goal in each half was enough to defeat Ryman Premier outfit Enfield Town at Uxbridge F.C.
A close-fought first half saw Enfield reduced to ten men following a bad foul on Andy Lomas as the interval approached. But the Woods' left-back recovered to send in a great cross which George Nicholas powerfully headed home just before the break.
The game was finely poised for much of the second period, but Northwood's victory was confirmed on 86 minutes when Niko Muir crashed home a spectacular drive from 25 yards - and a few minutes later, skipper Steve Brown was lifting the trophy!
The first goalscorer, George Nicholas, was awarded Man of the Match by the Middlesex F.A. The match report and photos are here.

This Saturday the Woods play in the Middlesex Senior Cup Final for the first time since 2007, when they take on Ryman League Premier Division side Enfield Town. The match will be played at Honeycroft, the ground of Uxbridge FC, and we are looking to get as many Northwood supporters there as possible to give some backing to the Woods – please get along and bring your friends!
Mark Burgess’ side have had a good season in the Evo-Stik Southern League, narrowly missing out of the play-offs, and they have been gearing up this week for the final. The whole squad is available for selection, and they are confident of pulling off the win against higher level opponents – having knocked out Hendon and Staines Town from the same division in previous rounds.
Northwood reserves ended their Suburban League campaign this evening, losing 2-1 against Camberley Town at Chestnut Avenue, Kildane Tesfu on target for the Woods.

This Friday, 6th May, the @TheWoods clubhouse is staging the 30th Anniversary Reunion for the 1985/86 Southall Football Club FA Vase squad. The Middlesex side reached the final of the Vase that season before losing 3-0 to Halesowen Town. Many of the side went on to go one better with Yeading FC a few years later, both clubs under the management of current Wealdstone FC boss Gordon Bartlett, who is looking forward to meeting up with his former charges once again.
Nearly all of the players that played for Southall that season are coming to the reunion, and that includes several one-time Northwood players such as Stewart Baldwin, Steve Cordery, Colin Dennison, John Exer, Rob Holland and John Powell, who should all be present. Another former Northwood player who appeared in that Final at Wembley was Keith James, who sadly passed away eighteen months ago. His brothers Viv and Tommy also appeared for the Woods in the 1980s and Keith will be represented by family members at the event.
Current members of the Southall FC side who now play their football in the Spartan South Midlands League are also to be represented along with many supporters of the team during that memorable year. Northwood FC Secretary Alan Evans was part of the committee at Southall FC at that time and, together with supporter Ben Sheenan, has been working on contacting everyone involved with Southall at the time and it should be a real night of nostalgia. The evening will run from 7pm until late.
The star of the side was of course future England striker Les Ferdinand who is expected to be in attendance too and if you fancy joining them, then you can. Tickets are limited but are still available to purchase here, priced at £10, which includes a buffet. Order now and collect yoyr tickets on the door on the night.
