Harrow Borough appoint former Hendon boss as new manager
Dave Anderson replaces Dave Howell at the helm
Harrow Borough have appointed Dave Anderson as new manager following the departure of David Howell.
The former Hendon and AFC Wimbledon boss, who in the past served as assistant manager at Borough, took over on Wednesday to replace Howell, who departed to manager St Albans last week.
The 49-year-old has more than 25 years experience as a coach, and makes the move to Earlsmead following a spell as assistant manager at Slough Town.
Borough chairman Peter Rogers said: “We understand that initially we need to steady the ship after the unexpected departure of our previous management team. But we are confident that under Dave’s charge the club will be able to push towards the upper echelons of the Division with the aim of once again becoming realistic play-off contenders.”
Borough return to pre-season on Tuesday, and Anderson’s first task will be to convince several key players to stay with the Ryman Premier Division club rather than follow in their former boss’s footsteps to St Albans.

“We have the friendly against QPR to come (on July 15), so the new manager will be working towards that,” added Rogers.
“I honestly don’t know how many players will stay. “I’m sure some will follow Dave to St Albans. He certainly indicated that there were three or four he’d like to take.
“But players come and go during the close season and to be honest it’s never been something which has worried me.
“We wish Dave all the best. He’s an ambitious manager and I think he felt the time was right to move when his stock was high. He wanted a fresh challenge.”
