Harrow Borough 1-0 Tonbridge Angels

Isthmian League

I left home around 5pm to Charing Cross and then the tube to South Harrow which involved the Bakerloo and Piccadilly lines in London. Of course Earlsmead was always going to be on my list sooner or later but after checking Tonbridge's fixtures as they're pretty local to me, I noticed they were away to Harrow and of course it isn't too far, so decided to make the trip to Harrow. Gillingham weren't playing either as we haven't got a game until Boxing Day anyway which I can't make due to work commitments so I fancied a game just before Christmas, and a cold Tuesday night in Harrow sort of err, well appealed. It didn't appeal that much but after all it was a bit of football, so couldn't complain. Anyway I got to South Harrow tube station around 7.10pm and got to the ground after 15-20 minutes later. I also heard that fellow groundhopper and Wycombe Wanderers fan Russell was also attending the same game after finding out the night before, but unfortunately didn't meet. Anyway onto the game wise, I thought it was a fairly good game. Harrow didn't really play great, whether Tonbridge had some good chances, Nathan Elder hitting the bar in the 2nd half and the lad Akwosi up front with him having a chance cleared off the line and looked a pacy striker. I thought Tonbridge were very unfortunate not to get anything from the game, but Harrow took their chance well and got a 1-0 win. Gutted to see Tonbridge lose, but that's the way football works at times. I've experienced it too often with Gillingham! Anyway, after the game, I eventually got home after midnight which wasn't too bad. Another ground off the list, my 6th Isthmian League ground.

South Harrow tube station, the closest tube station to Earlsmead, around a 20 minute walk.
