London Senior Cup: Clapton 0 Harrow Borough 7

Clapton manager Jonny Fowell is looking forward to testing his squad against Evo-Stik Southern Premier South high-flyers Harrow Borough.

Harrow found the perfect riposte to the perceived injustices of a week ago as, despite missing the three players suspended after the game at Taunton, they scored three goals without reply in a storming second half to rise back up to sixth place in the Evo-Stik South Premier South table.

Harrow saw three players sent off in the first half of their match with the leaders and conceded five times after the restart on a day to forget in Somerset.

In what has already been a great season, Harrow put on their best display yet, a start-to-finish performance in which every player excelled, to dismantle their visitors from North Hampshire on Saturday.

For the second Saturday running, Harrow contrived to throw away a leading position, returning pointless from an intensely-frustrating afternoon on the banks of the Thames.

The book of Harrow Borough FA Trophy disasters is already a long one, but it had another significant chapter added to it on a bitingly cold and wet afternoon in Bedfordshire.

Harrow brought out their best away form on a beautiful Autumn afternoon at The Rogers Family Stadium to claim a home win.

For the fourth time running, there was a late goal at The Rogers Family Stadium, and for the second time of the four it was to Harrow’s advantage.

A draw would have been a fair result from an entertaining, albeit error-strewn, contest but it was the Hampshire visitors who took the points with a breakaway goal on 84 minutes.

With £6,000 on the line, Harrow put in their worst performance of the season as they weakly exited the FA Cup at the first hurdle.

Harrow had to settle for a point from their fourth game in eight days against struggling Tooting.

A remarkable five goals in 12 second-half minutes, including a six-minute hat-trick from George Moore, saw Harrow tear apart a makeshift Lowestoft team on Thursday night.

Folkestone were superior to Harrow in almost all departments and comfortably won to go top of the Bostik Premier League.

For the second successive week, Harrow quickly established a two-goal lead only for their opponents to equalise, before Boro won the game with a fine strike from George Moore in the closing minutes.

It remains to be seen just how important Charles Banya’s 81st-minute strike will be come the end of the season, but it felt huge on Saturday.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
