GREAT BOROUGH FIGHTBACK PRESERVES FA CUP PLACE
Aug 18, 2007, 7:39 pm
BOROUGH GOING TO WEMBLEY
 
.......on Tuesday 21st August to the Vale Farm Stadium of Wembley FC.    Superb late strikes from Mark Maher and Ronardson Obinna secured this FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round Replay after Borough had gone in 2 down at the interval.

FLYING START TO NEW SEASON
Aug 11, 2007, 8:22 pm
Borough started the new season in the Spartan South Midlands First Division in fine style.  A blistering start saw them take the lead within the first two minutes of the opening game of the season against visiting   Arlesey Athletic. The first goal came from Melvin THOMPSON after some good build-up play around the box. The second goal was soon to follow this time by Jamaal DUNCAN in the 9th minute after beating two opponents.  The score was made 3-0 on the half-hour by a diving header from Omar Yaseen OMAR  from Thompsons wide free-kick.     
     Arlesey Athletic  hit back in the second half with a fine long shot by Lee SHADBROOK to make the score 3-1. Haringey stepped up a gear  and it was only a matter of time before they scored again which they did when  Jamaal DUNCAN  netted  his second of the game scoring from a narrow angle to drive the ball past the goalkeeper.
         Haringey were then reduced to 10 men when Wayne Grant was sent off for a second bookable offence on the hour mark which limited Borough's opportunities to further increase the score-line.      
        An all round good opening day performance for a Borough team showing lots of promise.

100 YEARS AND STILL GOING STRONG
Jul 31, 2007, 1:32 am

CENTENARY CELEBRATION

 
2007 sees Haringey Borough celebrating its 100th birthday.   The Club now playing at Coles Park is - following a history of breakaways, name changes, re-unifications and mergers - effectively the Club which began life in 1907 as TUFNELL PARK FC in the London League.     Other names from its past history are Wood Green Town,  Tufnell Park (Edmonton) ,  Edmonton,   Edmonton and Haringey with the name HARINGEY BOROUGH finally being adopted in the mid 1970's.
 
This coming Saturday,  August 4th (3.30pm), Borough will be playing a pre-season match at Coles Park against LONDON COLNEY - another Club celebrating its centenary this year.    At stake will be THE CENTENARY CUP.   
 
SPARTAN SOUTH MIDLANDS LEAGUE CHAIRMAN PAT BURNS and TREASURER TONY FORRESTER will attend as League Representatives and present Borough with its commemorative Centenary award. 
 
A big turnout is hoped for and we would  like  to see a lot of names from our past and in particular former Haringey Borough players and  those who played for its earlier component teams.
 
Before the main event at 3.30pm there will be the chance to see Borough's stars of the future when this seasons Under 17/18 team - mostly consisting of last seasons unbeaten in the Harrow Youth League Under 16 team when they take the field for an earlier match at 12.30pm against the Under 17s of Millwall Albion.
 
Admission will be free    Bar and refreshments available throughout
 
While Borough have never really hit the heights - although they were beaten FA Amateur Cup Finalists in 1921 - it is to the credit of the many dedicated people who have kept the Club going through some very difficult times that it is still very much alive and planning for a better future with no less than 9 teams being fielded next season.  Other illustrious names from the Non-League scene have risen to the top and then crashed out of existence, Walthamstow Avenue and Colne Dynamos immediately spring to mind,  while unfashionable Clubs such as Borough, run by people who really love the game, struggle on determinedly and overcome all setbacks. 
 
 

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF IN LONDON SENIOR CUP !!
Jul 27, 2007, 12:49 pm
TOUGH DRAW FOR BOROUGH IN COUNTY CUP
 
Unlucky Borough have been drawn away to the same Club that eliminated them from last seasons competition in the first round of the London Senior Cup  -  ROMFORD of the Essex Senior League.
 
Last years game was a real thriller with Borough fighting back from two first half goals to lose 2-1 and rather unluckily failing to force at least extra time.
 
If they survive this tough test they will entertain fellow Spartan South Midlands Leaguers HODDESDON TOWN in the 2nd Round and  success in that game  would then see them visiting WINGATE & FINCLEY of Rymans Division 1 North where victroy would send them on the road  to CRAY WANDERERS of Rymans Division 1 South in a bid to reach  the Quarter final
 
The  complete draw can be viewed on the London FA website (see LINKS page)
 

BOROUGH WOMEN SECURE NATIONAL TROPHY
Jul 16, 2007, 11:57 pm

 

 

 

 

The HARINGEY BOROUGH WOMEN players representing East London as "HFC" (see News Article of June 11th for earlier background) - a "Kick it Out" initiative -  duly brought the Winners trophy back from the National Finals in Manchester on 15th July
 
The following is an edited extract from the BBC sport website  (link below for full report)     
 
 
London teams top of "Your Game "
"Your Game" is a partnership between the BBC and the Football Foundation, with support from Barclays Spaces for Sports.
     In the women's final,  HFC from East London triumphed 3-1 over Wirral Ladies thanks to two sensational strikes from player-of-the-match Sarah Jane 'Minnie' Cleary.              
     
   Despite the typically Mancunian weather, 40 teams who qualified from regional finals around England failed to let the rain dampen their spirits in a hotly-contested tournament.   
   The Match of the Day cameras made the occasion the biggest of its kind with commentary, post-match interviews and analysis from pundits all beamed onto the big screens around the venue.

 

More than 500 people crammed into the Sports City arena in the shadow of Manchester City's home ground

  The women's final was a tight affair but the difference was provided by Cleary who gave a defending masterclass of which former German captain Franz Beckenbauer would have been proud.

  Having carved out the early chances, Wirral Ladies were unlucky to find themselves 1-0 down after a low shot from HFC found the corner.

   The Merseyside team's resolute defence, which conceded just one goal in reaching the final, was relieved when the team equalised with a strike the HFC keeper failed to hold.

   But with time running out and the game deadlocked, Cleary began to forage from the back like a sweeper of old and struck home with what looked like a deflected shot.

   If that was fortunate, her next strike had her team-mates in raptures as she again produced a strong challenge in her own half, only to see the ball ricochet into the net.

  Wirral Ladies were heartbroken as the final whistle blew.

   But among the extreme effort, it was ironic that the nature of Cleary's two strikes belied her coolness under pressure. Indeed, she was more nervous when she watched the team's performance on the big screen afterwards.

  "It's good to be the champions and we'll be back next year with a bit more confidence," she said.

   "When you're playing you don't notice the cameras but when they are asking you questions you get a bit shaky. The whole Match of the Day set-up made us feel special."

HFC dominate in East London
HFC celebrate winning the women's Your Game competition
HFC only conceded one goal during the whole tournament

A hat-trick from striker Carrie-Anne helped HFC to a commanding 6-0 victory over Bethwin A to claim the women's trophy at Your Game East London.

HFC, representing a Kick it Out initative in Hackney, produced a string of scintillating performances at the Leyton Orient Community Complex to stake their claim as potential champions at the national finals next month.

HFC had only conceded one goal on their way to the final, which they dominated from the first whistle.

Star player Sarah added two goals, one a superb finish from a mazy dribble while Jade added the other goal courtesy of a powerful long range strike.
 
HFC will be joined at the national finals by Brent Ladies

"Thank you all for entering our first ever Spurs Ladies tournament.

We hope you all enjoyed the day, and topped up your suntans because the weather was a little too hot to play football in but the effort all your players put in during the event was superb and we would like to thank each and every one of them to make our first tournament a success.   The spirit the game was played in was how football should be played and at Spurs Ladies we try to install sportsmanship into our teams from an early age and  the way your players performed and handled themselves on and off the pitch was of a very high standard of professionalism, and we thank you for that.

We will be looking at next year for another five a side event and hopefully you would all like to come again and play in our tournament.

The winners were THLFC B and the runners up were Haringey Borough and the score was 2-0

The player of the tournament was Sarah Cleary of Haringey Borough
(congratulations)

Once again a big thank you from Spurs Ladies and hope to see you all next year
