Haringey Borough do themselves proud in the FA Cup

Crouchenders have long had to choose between supporting one of two local soccer giants, Arsenal or Spurs, but now there’s a new kid on the block, and their home ground is conveniently placed on the W3 bus route.

It was a fantastic night on Friday for Haringey Borough FC. Who’d have predicted it? Live on BBC Two, holding their own against an EFL League 1 side, it was almost like a story from Roy of the Rovers!

Ham & High reports…

The financial rewards the club have received from this historic FA Cup run have set them up for a long time to come.

Haringey manager Tom Loizou admitted it was unbelievable to see Coles Park so packed for the FA Cup first round tie with AFC Wimbledon. A crowd of 2,710 was recorded for the match on a cold, windy and wet night in north London.

Mitchell Pinnock’s 90th-minute strike gave the Dons a much-needed 1-0 victory, but the Bostik Premier club were heroes long before a ball had been kicked.

This tie alone earned them at least £75,000 while the run to the first round pocketed the north Londoners over £50,000.

Come on Crouchenders, let’s get behind Haringey Borough and help them on their journey towards the top flight!
