Season begins with home victory
The season started well for Hadley Wood & Wingate after a 2-0 victory over Bushey Sports Club in the opening game in the Herts Senior County League.
After a quiet first half where Hadley Wood & Wingate dominated possession but with little creativity the opener came 10 minutes into the second half after a corner whipped in from Joe Sharpe was headed towards goal by Marc Weatherstone and touched in by Meshach Williams.
The second goal came from the penalty spot following a foul inside the box on substitute James Karena. The referee had no hesitation awarding the penalty which was slotted home by Jack Read.
With five minutes remaining Bushey Sports Club went down to 10 men after a second yellow card was given but Hadley Wood & Wingate were not able to extend their lead even with the man advantage.
