Haringey Borough gear up for FA Cup clash on Non-League Day

Haringey Borough continue their FA Cup campaign with another home tie at Coles Park on Saturday, coinciding with the annual Non-League Day.

With Premier League and Championship clubs having a weekend off due to the international break, fans of teams in the top two tiers are encouraged to turn out and support their local non-league sides.

Haringey, who thumped Barkingside 7-2 at home in the preliminary round of the FA Cup on August 20, will entertain fellow Ryman League Division One North outfit Witham Town at 3pm.

Tickets will be available at just £3 for adults, while senior citizens and students can watch the tie for just £1 – and the entire gate money will be given to Prostate Cancer UK.

Borough suffered a 2-1 league defeat away against Norwich United on Saturday but bounced back to secure a 3-1 home win over Maldon & Tiptree on Monday, with Daniel Aristidou scoring either side of Jamie-Lee O’Donoghue’s strike.

Meanwhile, Haringey’s women made it two wins from two at the start of their season, with a Jessica Appeagyei hat-trick and Julia Carruthers brace resulting in a 5-1 home win over Brentwood Town on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Wingate & Finchley’s disappointing start to the season continued as they were defeated twice in the Ryman League Premier Division over the Bank Holiday weekend, without scoring a goal.
