RECOVERY AND A WIN AT KENTISH TOWN MEANS
Apr 18, 2009, 6:43 pm
SAFETY SECURED
 
Borough completed their customary late escape - and still with a game to spare - as they collected their 7th point in the last week with a nervy 4-2 victory over Kentish Town who, along with Holmer Green, will now be the bottom two Clubs whatever the results of the final round of games.

......... JUST ONE POINT FROM SAFETY
 
KENTISH TOWN'S DEFEAT BY COCKFOSTERS ON THURSDAY EVENING LEAVES BOROUGH NEEDING JUST ONE  POINT FROM THEIR GAME WITH KENTISH TOWN ON SATURDAY TO BE VIRTUALLY SAFE FROM A BOTTOM TWO POSITION  .......   BARRING HOLMER GREEN TURNING ROUND A GOAL DIFFERENCE INFERIOR BY 8 IN THEIR LAST TWO MATCHES.   A WIN WOULD REMOVE ANY LINGERING DOUBTS.

GROUND GRADE "F" SECURED
 
After three weeks of almost non-stop activity the desired result was achieved last Friday when the Stadium was confirmed to be up to the standard required for the grant of an FA "F" grade - without which relegation to Division One would have followed. 
 
There is now a concrete path  and a new barrier above the minimum 1.1 metres in height all around the pitch and major improvements to the dressing rooms have also been completed.     Chairman Aki Achillea has devoted hours to the organisation of the work to which new Manager Tom Loizou has contributed greatly especially in the dressing room improvement area.
 
To maintain our Premier Division status it is now only necessary for us to stay out of the bottom two spots in the table and, regrettably, we were unable to produce a performance to "christen" our improved facility with a win last Saturday when a lacklustre display enabled mid-table Langford to leave with the spoils after a 1-0 win.  We now have three home games, tomorrow, Easter Saturday and the following Tuesday in which to put some daylight between ourselves and the other relegation strugglers two of which (Kentish Town and Cockfosters) will be our final two opponents of the season after the three earlier crucial home fixtures.
 
 

CHANGES MADE........
Mar 24, 2009, 10:57 am

TOM LOIZOU  
                         has today been installed as the Club’s new FIRST TEAM MANAGER  

Tom is a UEFA “A” Licence holder and brings to the Club a a wealth of experience gained over a long period in management mostly at a higher level.     Following a spell as Youth and Reserve Team Manager at Leyton Orient he was Caretaker Manager of that League Club’s First Team for a while and Director of their Centre of Excellence  before moving on to Crown & Manor to run their International Soccer Academy.   Managerial spells at Cheshunt, Enfield, Leyton and finally a second spell at Cheshunt when they were a Level 3 Club followed.

 

Tom brings with him trusted lieutenants in Charlie Douse and Paul McGiven who will be Assistant Managers with Charlie also taking the role of First Team Scout and Paul that of First Team Coach.     

 

The new Management will take charge of the team for the first time at this coming Thursday’s visit to Hertford Town and their first Home game will be two days later when Biggleswade United visit Coles Park

 

                             ====================================

 

This month, change is also the order of the day for the Womens Team as after nearly five seasons as Manager/Coach ERIC BIKUBI has now of necessity relinquished his position.    The Club greatly appreciate and thank him for all the hard work and time he has devoted to the role.      Eric is starting up his own business, in partnership with Mohamed Bolaji who has been his Assistant this season and we wish them both well in their new venture.        To see the season out Borough have been lucky to secure the assistance of a Level 3 Coach, DARREN SMITH -   who is on the staff of the London FA – and we certainly hope he can guide us to safe retention of our long held Premier Division status in the remaining eleven games   -   actually half a seasons fixtures !

DOUBLE WEEKEND DELIGHT SEES BOROUGH.......
Mar 15, 2009, 11:09 pm
.........OUT OF THE RELEGATION SPOTS
 
On Saturday 14th our FIRST TEAM secured three vital points in a hard fought home "local derby" with Broxbouurne Bolrough which lifted them to 3rd from bottom of the table above Cockfosters and Holmer Green.
 
Not to be outdone the WOMENS team similarly climbed out of the drop zone on Sunday with an emphatic 6-1 win away to Cambridge United which leaves them above both their victims and Kettering Town

BOROUGH PICK UP 3 VITAL POINTS AT BIGGLESWADE UNITED
 
Borough did not look likely winners during the first half hour and it was no surprise when Biggleswade took the lead midway through the half when a corner fell at the feet of an opponent just a yard from goal.     But just before half time an astute pass by Paull Abbott sent Karl Lewis free to race towards goal and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot as the 'keeper brought him down.   The keeper did very well to push Abbott's well struck spot kick onto a post but in the scramble which followed Leon Rolle drove the ball home from a tight angle.   The second half belonged to Borough and after 75 minutes Niall Ritchie directed a downward far post header accurately inside the post.   Five minutes later, Abbott raced clear down the right from inside his own half and finished with a clinical low shot.   Lewis almost scored a similar goal as he raced clear down the middle but pushed the ball a little too far ahead and enabled the 'keeper to fall on it.   Borough survived what looked to be a reasonable penalty appeal by the home side but never looked in real danger of surrendering their lead.    With Cockfosters losing at home to Leverstock Green Borough's campaign to keep out of the bottom two spots received a massive boost and the bottom of the table now reads

John Ullman Cup: VCD Athletic 1-2 Haringey Borough (aet)
Mar 6, 2009, 12:52 am
Dramatic Night As Under 18s Overcome The Odds

Haringey Borough's youth team traveled to Crayford in Kent to face VCD Athletic in the Kent Cup Quarter Final on Thursday night. Borough had a depleted squad with many players out through injury and illness following two cup matches going to extra-time and penalties in the last 7 days.

The first half saw VCD take the lead, followed by a great penalty save by McCarthy to stop Athletic doubling their winning margin, and finally a late equaliser by Espana to make it 1-1 at half time.

Borough played the majority of the second half with ten men, however they grew stronger and looked the more likely winner. This proved to be the case when 10-man Haringey hit the winning goal in added on time in extra-time when Hand raced through and clinically finished in the bottom left hand corner to set off wild scenes of celebration.

Haringey will face either Dartford or Dover in the semi final in a few weeks time.



COLWYN CUP QUARTER FINAL - COCKFOSTERS 1-1 HARINGEY BOROUGH (BORO WIN 6-5 ON PENS)

Borough Youth Scrape Through To Cup Semi

Haringey Borough U18s have reached the semi-final of the Colwyn Cup after beating Cockfosters FC 6-5 on penalties on Thursday night. The final score was 1-1 after 90 minutes and so it remained after extra-time to take the tie to the dreaded penaltiy shoot-out. Michael Hand missed Borough's first penalty, but then 6 scored penalties in a row from Angel, Barzey, Phinn-Acher, Fontanini, Espana and Hayes ensured that Borough progressed to meet either Stevenage or Wormley in the semi-final.

Michael Hand scored Haringey's goal minutes after Cockfoster took the lead in the second half. Substitute Barzey cut inside from the left onto his rigth foot and played a sweet ball into Hand's path, Hand then controlled well before lifting the ball into the net.

Prior to Cockfoster's first goal McCarthy in the Boro goal made an outstanding penalty save to keep the scores level. The central defensive pairing for Haringey of Gennaris and Phinn-Archer were exceptional all night as Boro put in an extremely hard-working team performance to make up for the fact that they weren't at their free flowing best.


Next week Borough U18s face Bury Town on Monday in the Brian Hitchings Cup, before travelling to VCD Athletic on Thursday in the John Ullmann Cup Quarter-Final.
