I visited a very wet Earlsmead on Non League Day, for the fixture vs. Truro City. The feature tells the story of the club, in detail from its formation as Roxonian FC in 1933, right through the present day. Lots of photos. Hope you enjoy it. Feedback welcome.

David,

Having followed Harrow Borough for a number of years I was very impressed with your article which I found to be very informative. Looking at the history of the Borough and the pictures brought back many memories, in particular, the one showing the entrance to the ground in Earlsmead, when it went under the name of Harrow Town. I lived on the opposite corner of Carlyon Avenue/Earlsmead to the one shown in the picture on your article until moving to Swindon in 1966. A board showing the location of the ground used to be hung on our garden fence. There used to be a social side to the club, under the name of Earlsmead Social Club, with the clubhouse being located at the side of the pitch where the official benches are now placed. Cricket, snooker and darts were all played there at that time. In fact, there was somebody playing in my darts team called Bill Warwick. I wonder if it is the same person whose picture is shown in your very entertaining piece.

Tony

Hi Tony, thanks for your comments ... and memories. I believe Bill Warwick is “Carpark Bill”, but perhaps one of the Earlsmead regulars will confirm this. A lovely chap, it was a pleasure to meet him.

Indeed, it hopefully encapsulates everything we love about non-League.
