Haringey Borough sealed a 2-1 victory away to Corinthian Casuals on the opening day of the Isthmian Premier Division season.

Goals from Daniel Akindayini and Laste Dombaxe sealed the points for Tom Loizou’s side despite a late goal from Bradley Wilson at King George’s Field.

The two sides played out a goalless first-half and it wasn’t until the 51st minute when Haringey took the lead thanks to Akindanyi.

Three minutes later they doubled their lead and held firm until two minutes before the final whistle when Wilson pulled one back to set up a nervy finish.
