Woodford Town have the chance to finish the most bizarre of seasons with some silverware at the Oakfield Stadium home of Redbridge FC on Saturday.

A midday kick off sees Woods taking on Hoddesdon Town in the Len Cordell Memorial Plate Final, for which they qualified in some style after a 10-goal demolition of Isthmian League opponents Great Wakering Rovers.

Woodford’s new-look squad have shown promising signs of improvement from their Essex Senior League campaign which saw them languishing at the wrong end of the table before lockdown curtailed the action.

The resumption has seen victories against Great Wakering and newly promoted Buckhurst Hill, as well as a battling 1-1 draw with a youthful Cheshunt outfit much to the delight of joint-manager Dee Safer.

Safer said: "Julian (Charles) and myself have freshened the team up and we’re optimistic about the future, starting with this Saturday.
