Next up - Northwood away on Saturday, 29th September at Northwood Park, Chestnut Avenue, Northwood, Middlesex, HA6 1HR; Bostik Isthmian League Division One (South Central), kick off 3pm.
Admission: Adults £8, Concessions 4, Under-16s free.
This will be our first visit to Northwood since a 2-1 victory in the Southern League thirty months ago. With the alterations made to step 4 by the FA for this season the Middlesex club have followed us back to the Isthmian League where we used to meet.
They've found it an interesting return if their most recent results are anything to go by. Last Saturday saw them win 6-1 at home to Molesey whilst in midweek they lost 6-0 at Hayes & Yeading.
Appearing in both those games was former Ware player Ben Andreos who made his debut for us in 2009 four days after we had lost 6-0 at Northwood. Six seems to be the number hanging over this game. Ben is now part of the coaching team at Northwood with his appearances mostly coming from the subs bench.
It's difficult to preview a game with Northwood without mentioning our first league meeting in 2007 in which we were 2-0 up after 63 seconds and went on to win 4-1. Clearly there was no hangover from our FA Cup 1st round defeat to Kidderminster Harriers four weeks earlier.
Northwood currently lie tenth in the table with nine points from seven games.
