The final game of the league season saw Godalming overcome pointless Woodford United 2-1. The Gs rested and rotated players, ahead of Tuesday’s playoff semi-final against Biggleswade, but were let down on the day by some poor finishing. George Short and Jamie McClurg both struck the woodwork in a half dominated by Godalming, but the sides entered the half time break level.
More Godalming pressure came in the second half, but the Gs were stunned when Jack Bailey gave Woodford the lead with a neat finish into the bottom corner from the edge of the area in the 70th minute. Godalming finally found the breakthrough 5 minutes later when Warren Harris headed Darren Wheeler’s cross into the top corner. 7 minutes later Godalming to the lead, again Darren Wheeler cross, and Scott Harris got the faintest of touches with his head as the ball bounced into the bottom corner. There were chances for more goals, but Godalming were denied by some good saves from the Woodford keeper.
Godalming finish the league season in 3rd place, with a points total of 92. Biggleswade travel to Wey Court this Tuesday for the playoff semi final, where the victors will face either Rugby or Beaconsfield on bank holiday Monday.
