Blues will look to bounce back following Saturday’s home loss against Lewes when they travel to Haringey Borough on Monday, kick-off 7.45pm.
The north London won promotion through the Bostik North play-offs last season, and have made a good start to life at step 3, sitting eighth with 30 points from 17 games. Having reached the FA Cup fourth qualifying round last season they went one better this year as wins against Erith Town, AFC Sudbury and Poole Town took them into the first round proper where they bowed out on national TV with a 1-0 home loss against AFC Wimbledon. Their FA Trophy campaign wasn’t quite so successful as they went on penalties after a pair of draws against Chesham United.
The biggest club to play in White Hart Lane are back in the big time and will face the Blue Brazil for the first time since the 1964/65 season when we won promotion from the third tier of the Athenian League. Borough can trace their history back to 1907 when they were formed as Tufnell Park, and they joined the Isthmian League in 1920 when it was firmly established as the top amateur league in the south. They left the competition in 1952,and a couple of mergers followed. After winning the Essex Senior League in 2015 with an impressive 129 goals in 38 games, they returned to the Isthmian League.
