IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM IN HARINGEY
Spartan South Midlands and Essex Senior League update
It may have been a miserable weekend for one club in Haringey as Tottenham Hotspur lost Gareth Bale and the North London Derby on Sunday but two other clubs from the London Borough were celebrating memorable victories in The FA Cup with Budweiser on Saturday.
Haringey Borough won 2-1 at home to Calor Gas Central Division (Step 4) AFC Hayes to set up a trip to Wembley in the next round. They travel to Vale Farm to play Wembley FC who themselves got a fantastic result at a Step 4 club as they won 1-5 at Ryman Division One (North) Ware. Anthony McDonald scored both Borough's goals in the first 25 minutes.
Greenhouse London FC (formerly Haringey and Waltham Development) travel to another local Step 4 side and easily won 0-3 at Potters Bar Town. They host Bedford Town at Coles Park in the First Qualifying Round which should be an occasion to remember with all at the club.

A brilliant site with superb photos well worth visiting.
