Striker ar­rives back at United six years af­ter League Two trans­fer

NORTH­WOOD wasted no time in rac­ing into the lead against Bar­ton Rovers but the Bed­ford­shire side main­tained their hold over Mark Burgess’ boys on Satur­day.

Burgess and coach Si­mon Huggett were back in the dugout af­ter a week away but not even their re­turn could in­spire the Woods to three points against a team they failed to beat in four at­tempts last sea­son.

They had barely even taken their seats when the dead­lock was bro­ken by Max Hol­land af­ter just 37 sec­onds at Ch­est­nut Av­enue.

Rovers hit back through Alex Con­don’s con­tro­ver­sial ef­fort, which the hosts claimed had not crossed the line, but par­ity was only re­stored for a mo­ment be­fore Louis Stead put the Woods back in front.

But the Bar­ton curse came back to haunt them again as Clau­dio Dias grabbed a share of the spoils for the visi­tors.

North­wood turn their at­ten­tion to the FA Cup this week­end as they bat­tle Ry­man Premier League side Har­row Bor­ough for a place in the next round.

Uxbridge are also in first qual­i­fy­ing round ac­tion this week­end at Hey­bridge Swifts and go into the cup tie full of con­fi­dence af­ter a dou­ble from Wayne Carter and one each from Matty Woods and Kevin Warner sunk Pot­ters Bar Town 4-1 at Hon­ey­croft.

AFC Hayes took a break from their Com­bined Coun­ties Premier du­ties on Satur­day but re­turn to the field at Farm Park when Col­liers Wood United come to town in three days’ time.

Hilling­don Bor­ough’s Wem­b­ley dream is over af­ter they were knocked out of the FA Vase by Pot­ton. Hare­field United are still wait­ing for their first Spar­tan South Mid­lands Premier vic­tory of the sea­son.
