Harrow Borough

Currently Playing In:

Isthmian League Premier Division

 

I admit I am biased, but having been manager of Harrow Borough at a time when the football section of the club was threatened with closure by their own social side, who resented bar profits being used by the football club, I am thrilled that Borough have kept their Isthmian Premier place for so long.

After a vote at which club secretary, Jim Rogers (Peter’s Dad) and I had collected all the players proxy votes the attempt to close down the football club was put off for a month because the voting was so close.  Within the next month the local council bought half the land to build a brand new school and Harrow Borough Football Club, was able to build a smarter ground, changed its image and was secure.

Since then, they actually won The Isthmian League in 1983-1984 but turned down promotion and have kept a wonderful consistency in The Isthmian Premier Division. Peter Rogers has given tremendous service and, as one can see from the records, the club usually give managers time to build their squads and prove their quality.

Surrounded by bigger and more attracted football clubs, Harrow Borough’s record is impressive and hopefully it will continue to attract loyal and dedicated football people on and off the field. T.W.
