Bor­ough’s strike­force on red hot scor­ing form

Hare­wood and Jor­dan fir­ing Hilling­don up the ta­ble

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT - By Tim Street tim.street@trin­i­tymir­

IF Will Grigg is on fire – as the song pop­u­larised by Wi­gan Ath­letic fans goes – An­drew Hare­wood and Tashan Jor­dan must be close to in­cin­er­a­tion.

The Hilling­don Bor­ough duo have bagged nine goals in seven games and seven in eight re­spec­tively to fire their side into the Spar­tan South Midlands Divi­sion One pro­mo­tion pic­ture.

They are among a clutch of play­ers who played in the South­ern League for AFC Hayes un­der Ian Crane, who is now the boss at Boro.

He said: “An­drew and Tash and do­ing very well, but so are all the lads at the mo­ment. We will just give it our best shot and see where we end up. I think it will come down to four teams – I ex­pect Southall, Bal­dock and Big­gleswade to be up there, and hope­fully we can chal­lenge too.

“We want to get this club back to where it should be. When we came down from the Premier, we didn’t think Divi­sion One would be that strong, but most of the clubs in it could hold their own in the Premier. Hare­field United are find­ing the same this sea­son.

“I’m pleased with how things are go­ing. It’s com­ing to­gether this year, and hav­ing the owner, Dee Dhand, more on board has been a great help.”

Hare­wood hit a hat-trick in Satur­day’s 6-1 win at Hadley Wood & Win­gate, while Jor­dan also net­ted, along with Jamie Wal­ters and Tom Wil­liams. Rory Mul­lane saved a spot kick from for­mer Han­well Town striker Bill Healy.

What was even more pleas­ing for Boro was the side they beat had drafted in five first team play­ers, in­clud­ing Healy from their par­ent side Ry­man Premier out­fit Win­gate & Finch­ley, for the game.

The win lifted them to fifth in the ta­ble ahead of last night’s (Tues­day’s) game against Brims­down. Hare­field, mean­while, went down 1-0 at Bal­dock and were due to play Harpen­den Town last night.

Over in the Com­bined Coun­ties Premier, AFC Hayes were un­able to fol­low up their mid­week 2-1 win at Bed­font Sports, go­ing down 3-2 at Chert­sey Town. They were due to host Bal­ham in the League Cup last night.

In South­ern One Cen­tral, North­wood will be kick­ing them­selves af­ter lead­ing high­fly­ing Kemp­ston Rovers 4-0 af­ter 49 min­utes, thanks to braces from Louis Stead and Ryan De­bat­tista, but con­ced­ing four in the last 20 min­utes to draw 4-4. Uxbridge, mean­while, went down 2-0 at Ash­ford Town (Middx).
