I'm looking forward to seeing my first Harrow Borough match for over 50 years when they come to Swindon to play Supermarine in November. Their ground is just down the road from where I now live. I used to live in Carlyon Avenue (and was a member of Earlsmead Social Club) before moving to Swindon when I got married in 1966. I don't expect I would recognise the club now. In my day there used to be 2 football pitches with a cricket table in between.

Hi Tony

It will be good to have you along. There will be at least a couple of people who were following Harrow before you left at the game.
I first went to Earlsmead in 1971 , when there were indeed still 2 pitches. That Al! Changed in 1974 when most of the current ground was built.

Make yourself known to the Boro fans who make the trip Tony.
You'll get a warm welcome I'm sure. I went half a dozen times as a teenager around 79-81 seasons then all of a sudden I started going regularly again in autumn of 2015.
I've met a great bunch of people down there , very welcoming, I'm sure it will be the same for you. Just don't wait another 50 years til the next game !

Boro showed a lot of character to put in another great away performance here to come back from 1-0 down to win this game 1-2.
The Marines took the lead early on with a headed goal at the far post. But Harrow soon got into gear and started to dominate the rest of the first half. George Moore scoring from close in after their keeper made a couple of good saves.
After a slick move Dylan Kearney got on to the end of a brilliantly quick whipped in cross from Ryan Haugh to head a bullet header into the top corner of the net. HT 1-2
Second half a lot closer and Swindon had chances to level, as we did to add to our lead. But the defence held firm in a more scrappier half.
Mark McLeod having a very good game IMO, a good move from the management keeping him on the pitch in a game where Boro had to stand firm to get the 3 points.
Also nice to meet up with Harrowexile during the game, hope he enjoyed the match and meeting and speaking to other Harrow fans there.

An excellent away day. After the first 10 minutes Boro played really well for the rest of the first half. To Swindon's credit they raised their gsme 2nd half , but we were worthy winners.
Terrific support, probably a third of our home support in Wiltshire.

Hi,

Another good win the other night. Long may it continue. By the way, Earlsmead part-timer, great picture and caption from last week's game at Supermarine. Hope to see you at the home fixture in January.

Fame at last!!! (ahem, glad they got my good side. . . . .)
Yep, I'll be there in January, no doubt you'll notice a lot of changes to your old stomping ground after 50 plus years!
