Woodford United 0 Hitchin Town 0

Saturday, February 5 2011

Lee at WoodfordAnti-football, destructive, negative. Call it what you will, but the way football was played in Byfield Road, Woodford Halse was the sort that wil do nothing to convince the public that non-league is an attractive proposition.

Not that the Woodford Halse (population 3,500) public seem terribly interested in football. The crowd at this awful spectacle was 142, of which more than half was from Hitchin.

And what dreadful fare it was. For most of the 90 minutes, the strong wind, rutted surface, reluctant officials and the home side’s gospel according to Wimbledon (circa 1986) conspired to make it tough for Hitchin.

In the first period, Hitchin survived an early scare when Martin Bennett dived at the feet of Nat Liburd. To give Woodford credit, they allowed Hitchin’s front men little room and the Canaries were restricted to scrappy half chances in the first period.

In the second half, Ricky Johnson tried to lob Bennett but Mark Smith, playing his last game for the club, cleared the danger.

Hitchin’s best chance fell to Zak Burke, who volleyed over the bar following a long ball. Shortly afterwards, John Frendo went close with a tame effort.

In the last minute, Woodford almost snatched victory when Neil King burst through and saw his shot tipped away by Bennett.

This was always going to be an uncomfortable game, so a point is perfectly respectable, but Hitchin fans will not want to go through another 90 minutes of spectator torture like this again in a hurry!
