Boro also in action away to Kings Langley on Tuesday night

Harrow Borough begin the new Evo-Stik South Premier South on Saturday when they welcome Weymouth.

Boro start the new term in a new division after being transferred across from the Bostik Premier over the summer.

Despite being in a new league, boss Steve Baker has been able to keep much of his squad together.

That includes the influential George Moore, who agreed to remain with the Rogers Family Stadium club earlier in the summer.

Harrow have been further boosted this week by the signings of left-back Ryan Haugh and midfielder Frank Keita.

The early weeks of the new term will be full of learning for Boro as they adapt to a new division with new opponents.

It has been a solid summer for Harrow, and boss Steve Baker cannot wait for the new term to begin this weekend.

“You always want to be at home on the first day of the season, but it will be tough as Weymouth will be among the sides going for promotion this season,” he said.

“Whenever you play against a team that will be near the top, you want to play them early in the season in the hope that they may not have settled and they don’t have any momentum behind them.

“We know it’s a tough start, but we’re pleased to be at home on the opening day.”

After hosting Weymouth on Saturday, Baker’s boys are back in action on Tuesday when they visit Kings Langley for their first away league game of the new season.

The Rogers Family Stadium side will hope the first week of the new term yields some positive results.
