Last game at Northwood

3 years ago we put all the troubles we were having at Edgware behind us and moved in at Chestnut Avenue Northwood.  Tomorrow we play the final match of our three year stay.

I should say Northwood have been excellent hosts.  We thank them for all their help and wish them all the best for the future.  In common with almost every other club locally they have it tough at present but under Ian Barry’s guidance they have stabilised and hopefully will start moving forward.

Our stay at Northwood hasn’t always been easy coinciding as it has with three years of struggle on the field.  Tomorrow’s game is one which means we might remember the time at Northwood well, or very darkly!

When we moved to Northwood we didn’t expect to play there for the full three years.  Not surprisingly perhaps PEPF still hasn’t happened and obviously we have made other plans for next year.

It brings to an end 17 years groundsharing at 4 different local grounds, Watford, Yeading, Edgware and Northwood.  That we remain alive and still attempting to progress is a miracle.

I hope we don’t require a miracle after tomorrows game.
