Northwood have appointed Scott Dash as their permanent manager after a successful interim period in charge of the club.

Dash, who joined Northwood as assistant manager in the summer, stepped up to the main job in the wake of Dean Barker leaving the club.

He has since taken 10 points from five Bostik League fixtures and is looking forward to the chance to continue in the role.

Dash said: “I would like to thank the chairman Ian Barry and the club for giving me the chance to become first team manager on a permanent basis.

“I will continue to give my best developing the team and helping the club moving forward.”

The 35-year-old has previous experience managing at Leverstock Green where he started out with the Under-18s.

He went on the manage Green’s senior set up for two season, most recently leading them to a seventh-place finish in the South Midlands League Premier Division last season.

On the pitch, Northwood continued their good run of form under Dash with a 3-1 win over Egham Town on Saturday.

The victory came in spite of the fact Wood’s hosts went ahead inside the first minute thanks to Brandon McCarthy’s effort.

That lead didn’t last long, however, and Northwood were back on level terms 10 minutes later when Sam Jenkins headed home Ben Pattie’s near post free-kick.

The goal gave Wood renewed confidence and they took a lead into the interval thanks to Chris Gosling’s strike.

With a lead to defend, Northwood were well-placed for the second period and made sure of the win a minute from time when substitute Dan Newton added a third.
