I take your point FixturesD, - Merthyr and Tiverton are both around 3.5 hours but fairly straightforward drives (at least we will probably see Hereford out of the mix next season) - but Brightlingsea, Lowestoft, Leiston, Needham Market, Margate and Folkestone aren't much easier, particularly if the M25 is playing up.

No doubt someone will calculate the respective mileages involved between staying or going (I won't say 'leaving' or 'remaining', it causes trouble !). We all know sometimes a few more miles is the quicker option.

I don't know about players based in East & South East London playing for Harrow Borough - why would they do that anyway when there are so many other clubs they would have to pass on the way to Earlsmead ? It may be unkind to speculate.

Conversely, the new fixtures west of London should attract a number of players who may be put off by long journeys to East Kent & East Anglia. A move to the Southern League would freshen up the fixture list whilst still giving Harrow
plent y of 'local' games.
