The pitch at Wodson Park yesterday
With Enfield Town's game against Waltham Abbey called off yesterday the cold end visited Wodson Park to watch the Spartan South Midlands League Division One game between Buckingham Athletic and Wodson Park.

The surface at the ground which is the home of Ryman League Division One (North) Ware appears to have taken a battering from the recent weather conditions and was not exactly one conducive to nice passing football thus making the game a rather scrappy one. It was all the same entertaining with some good honest tackles flying in from both sides.

This was 15th versus 17th in the league (of 21 teams since Sport London E Benfica withdrew) so it was a close game with the only real goalmouth action in the first half being Buckingham hitting the post and have the ball cleared off the line in an almighty scramble. There was also a shot from outside of the box from the away side which the home keeper parried into the path of an attacking Buckingham player whose shot went over the bar.

The second half was more of the same with a Buckingham player amazingly shooting over the bar when he only had the keeper to beat then only a few minutes later the home crossbar was hit.

Wodson won the game with two quickly taken goals from a shot outside of the box which appeared to creep into the keeper's left hand post past his dive and a bullet of a shot from Anthony Anstead. The other player the cold end recognised from previous visits to see Wodson Park play was attacking midfielder Tyler Hatherly who had a very good game taking the ball on some decent runs past the Buckingham back line.

The cold end also found out that former Enfield Town FC manager Stewart Margolis is assistant manager to Kristian Munt at Wodson Park.
