This Middlesex County League ‘goalfest’, played in scorching hot weather on the ‘Tigerturf’ 3G pitch next to Hillingdon Borough’s ground brought my 2011/12 winter season to a close. By my reckoning, this was the 34th ‘groundhop’ game of the season. Tony Incenzo once again liaised with the home club who initially thought his approach was a ‘wind-up’. It certainly wasn’t and Broadfields United benefitted from a crowd of 47. Already crowned as Premier Division Champions, Interwood scored four unanswered goals during the first half with Toby Ajala bagging a hat-trick. It looked all over yet Broadfields bounced back to reduced the deficit to just one goal but were rocked by the seemingly harsh dismissal of Kyle Watson. Interwood took full advantage of their extra man to eventually win 7-4.
