Highams club suffered third straight loss at weekend, but head coach draws on positives

Head coach Tom Redfern says there are plenty of plus points to take from Woodford’s 26-18 defeat at home to Norwich in London Two North East.

Hilton Foster and Michael McDonaugh both scored a try for the Highams club at the weekend, while Redfern added eight points from the tee, but it was not enough to prevent Woodford from sliding to a third straight loss.

Redfern, though, was content with the display and believes Woodford are getting closer to earning their first win of the campaign.

“If ever there was such a thing as a positive loss, then we had it at the weekend,” said Redfern.

“We took the lead, but then didn’t play well for the rest of the first half and that’s when Norwich scored most of their points; the second half from us, though, was a pleasure to watch.

“Hopefully the boys have realised now they can win games in this league, can move the ball and challenge teams, and that will leave us in a good place for the weekend.

“With the seconds and thirds also winning, there is some good momentum at the club now, but we have to start turning performances into wins.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
