Harrow Borough boss Dave Anderson has brought Raheem Sterling back to north west London – Raheem Sterling-Parker that is.

The young striker has joined from Conference South side Boreham Wood, with the hope of adding some raw pace to the Borough strikeforce along with David Fallah, who has also joined from Boston United.

Speaking ahead of the derby match with Hendon on New Year’s Day, Anderson (pictured) said: “I brought them in to add some pace to the team.

“David came off the bench in the 1-0 defeat against Met Police and he is very much in the mould of Simeon Akinola.

“With us playing so many games over a short period there’s every chance they will be involved against Hendon on Thursday, Witham Town on Saturday or in the cup match against Hayes and Yeading United next Tuesday.”

Borough lost 2-0 against Hendon in August and Anderson is determined to make life a lot tougher for the team who currently groundshare at Earlsmead.

Anderson said: “It was a comfortable win for Hendon that day and I said to Gary McCann after the game that they wouldn’t get an easier win all season.

“My players will not need any motivating for this match.

“The team has changed a fair bit since the last time we played Hendon. I’m not a great believer in sticking with things if things clearly aren’t working out.

“I’ve actually managed Gary and all his backroom staff and that makes me feel quite old. Gary is hardly a novice in management – they are all good people and when you look at the position they’ve got themselves into in the league they’ve got to be thinking about winning it.”

Borough currently sit fourth from bottom in the table. Their last eight league matches have seen them pick up one win against Leatherhead, with two draws and five defeats, but Anderson believes there were positives to take from the narrow defeat by Met Police.

He said: “I thought we were so unlucky not to come away with anything from the game.

“If Jose Mourinho thinks there is a campaign against Chelsea because [Cesc] Fabregas was denied a penalty, you should have seen the one we didn’t get.

“We more than pushed them, we just need some luck to go our way.”
