Grier's Guide to Haringey Borough

The match: Haringey Borough v Kingstonian, Isthmian League. Tuesday 25 January, 19:45.

The club: Formed in 1973, they made it to the Isthmian when they won the Essex Senior League in 2015. They reached the Premier Division three years later by beating Canvey in the playoffs.

The town: The ground is in Tottenham, best known globally as being the home of their near neighbours Spurs.

The ground: Coles Park Stadium, White Hart Lane, London N17 7JP. The main stand is well-elevated giving a good view over the pitch and there's a covered terrace alongside it. There's not so much on the other three sides of the ground though. Haringey have a 3G playing surface.

Directions: The ground is close to the North Circular, but rush hour traffic is likely to be horrendous. So public transport is probably the better option - head to Wood Green on the Piccadilly Line from where it's a short ride on the W3 bus or a walk of just over a mile along White Hart Lane.

Tickets: £10 adults / £5 seniors, students and U21s / U16s free with an adult. They also make season tickets available for free - see https://www.haringeyboroughfc.net/season-ticket/

Our record there: Our last visit came at the end of September 2019 in Hayden Bird's first season and it proved a vital turning point. The start of Bird's reign had been disappointing but a 1-0 win at Haringey, on a soaking wet night, showed the team had the ability to tough out a result when needed. It kickstarted a run of 14 games in which Ks lost just once, including the FA Cup wins over Weston, Dartford and Macclesfield.

Recent form: Solidly midtable in both the league and the form guide, they've earned draws against our playoff rivals Cheshunt and Enfield in their last two games.

Players to watch: Top scorer Bobson Bawling has made 71 Football League appearances for Crawley Town.

Crowd: They've grown well as a club in recent years and have a fanbase who tend to make a lot of noise home and away.

Drinking: The Nag's Head and Spouter's Corner are probably the most convenient, right by Wood Green Tube.

Food: Again, the area around Wood Green will give you your widest selection, with various fast food options, as there doesn't seem to be much on the walk to the ground along White Hart Lane.
