The first team play the first of this season's local derbies as they make the short trip to Earlsmead to face Harrow Borough. Our opponents have had a good start to the season, picking up 2 wins in their 3 games so far, one of which came at Tonbridge Angels yesterday afternoon.

Their 2-1 victory came courtesy of goals from Daniel McGonigle and Rocky Baptiste, and despite the dismissal of Danny Leech towards the end of the game, they were able to hold on for the three points.

Last season, the Greens completed a quick fire double over Harrow, winning 3-0 at Earlsmead on Boxing Day, James Parker, Casey Maclaren and James Bent finding the back of the net, and then winning 3-1 a week later at Vale Farm thanks a further goal from Maclaren, and a brace from Scott Cousins.

Supporters are advised that Field End Road/Eastcote Lane is closed under the railway bridge near Rabournmead Drive to facilitate bridge repairs. This may mean that traffic on alternative routes will be heavier than you might normally expect when driving to Earlsmead.

In terms of tube travel, supporters are advised that the whole of the Jubilee Line is closed, whilst the Metropolitan Line is closed between Chesham, Amersham, Watford and Northwood.
