Anybody been to see Harringey Borough FC? I’ve just moved and they’ll be my new local team. Considering checking them out.

Yeah - been quite a few times over the last few seasons. It’s always a fun day out though the ground isn’t the easiest to get to. Friendly, loud, supportive fans - mix of families, hipsters and the old hardcore. They do free season tickets to bring in more fans and have a really good community set up with loads of youth/women’s teams.

Promotion last year was somewhat unexpected and a lot of fun. We were doing well this season, sitting pretty at the top of the league with 11 wins in a row over Christmas but then have faltered a bit in the last few months having lost a couple of key players to higher divisions.

Found this photo album from a guy who did a lot of ground hopping in the 80s whilst looking for old pictures of Macclesfield’s ground. There are quite a few from teams that get mentioned in here so thought it’d be of interest: https://www.flickr.com/photos/foxtrot2/albums/72157639931147196

Another HBFC follower here… been pretty regularly the last few seasons, given the free season tickets it’s a solid afternoon out for less than a tenner, factoring in a programme, couple of pints and a bag of chips. Always a really good atmosphere, plenty of comedy chants with an emphasis on self-deprecation rather than opposition bashing. Seeing more and more families coming along to Saturday games, which is great. Some nice local away trips in Enfield, Finchley and Harlow too.

Owner and manager seem like top guys, and the team are having an unprecedented amount of success at the moment with promotion, the fa cup 1st round and their general form this year. Looking like it could be play-offs again this season, it was a brilliant atmosphere for the semi and final last year.

Decent content on their YouTube channel too, including some promos on how they’re trying to engage the local community:

Good little webzine here too, with an excellent away day guide: https://eweteabee.wordpress.com/
