Harrow Borough and Hendon will line up in the Evo-Stik South Premier South next season after the Football Association (FA) confirmed the allocations for step three of the National League System.

The west London-based pair have been transferred across from the Bostik Premier owing to a new league at step three being established this term that will be administered by the Evo-Stik South League.

By being transferred, Boro and the Greens now face lengthy trips to team such as Tiverton Town, Taunton Town and Merthyr Town in the league next season.

There is also the possibility that either Harrow or Hendon could face a trip to Coalville Town or King’s Lynn Town in the Evo-Stik South League Cup.

The news of the transfer will come as a huge blow to both sides, and in particular the Greens after losing the Bostik Premier play-off final last week.

After finishing third last season, Gary McCann’s men would have hoped to have challenged for the title in the Bostik Premier next season.

Instead, the Silver Jubilee Park outfit must now face up to the prospect of taking something of a step into the unknown after 55 years in the Bostik League.

Harrow have also seen there association with the Bostik League come to an end after being transferred.

Boro will hope they can improve their league position after being placed in the Evo-Stik South Premier South having finished their last two seasons in the Bostik Premier in 12th and 21st respectively.

While the majority of teams they will face next season will be relatively new to Harrow and Hendon, there are some familiar faces joining them in being transferred.

Metropolitan Police and Staines Town, who both lined up in the Bostik Premier last season, have both been transferred as well.

In addition, Leiston, Lowestoft Town and Needham Market, who were also in the Bostik Premier last season, have been moved to the Evo-Stik South Premier Central for next season.

The addition of a new league at step three, as well as one at step four administered by the Bostik League, is the biggest shake-up in non-league football since the introduction of the National League North and South in 2004.

Harrow and Hendon will hope the changes benefit them.
