The first team kept up their perfect start of the season in an entertaining bank holiday derby against Harrow Borough, 3-2 being the final score.

The first half was evenly balanced until two minutes before the break when the ball was only half cleared by Harrow, and Dave Diedhiou was able to set himself before scoring with an exquisite lob that beat three defenders on the line.

Five minutes into the second period, Carl McCluskey doubled the lead with a header having been left unmarked, but in the 68th minute Harrow pulled a goal back. Michael Peacock pushed a Harrow attacker over in the box, and Gary Jones stepped up to fire the penalty into the right hand side of the goal.

Isaiah Rankin opened his account in the 81st minute to restore the two goal advantage, but Dave Lawrence set up a nervous finish as he pulled another goal back for Harrow deep into stoppage time.
