Come on you Reds!
After Haringey Borough beat Whyteleafe 3-0 yesterday, we will host them in the first round qualifying of the fa trophy. A relatively easy draw on paper you may think...once you see their form and results though, different story.
They sit 5th in the bostik div 1 north with 22 points from 24 available. They're into the 4th round qualifying of the fa cup knocking out hitchin of southern prem, welling of national south and Biddeford of southern div 1 so far. They have heybridge swifts in the 4th round to get to the 1st round proper. They'll be hard to beat for sure in what looked a decent draw a few months ago
Re: Fa trophy
Remember that should a replay be necessary it will be played at Haringey's White Hart Lane ground on Monday evening (30 Oct).
Re: Fa trophy Boro 1 Boro 1
Went today and again very difficult to assess Boro`s performance ( that's us not them ! )
The first half we were very flat IMO . Off the pace, not getting forward enough very inconsistent. Boro ( the other lot ! ) deserved to go in 1 nil up at HT.
Second half Harrow were a lot quicker and did play some good football at times but we were still not firing on all cylinders.
Just when I thought we were heading out of the competition right at the death a penalty was given and Cumberbatch despatched the penalty 1-1 FT.
Thought the ref had a good game, the only gripe is he should have shown Haringey no.9 a red card for a real "leg-breaker" of a challenge right in front of the Harrow dug out, which then turned into the usual"melee"
Can see why Haringey are unbeaten in the league, they are a big strong outfit.
The replay is going to be a tough one.
Re: Fa trophy draw
Sittingbourne or Merstham away in the 2nd qualifying round.
