Harefield come up short of top two but pro­mo­tion is still very much on the cards

Hayes & Harlington Gazette - - SPORT -

PER­FEC­TION can prove elu­sive – just ask Harefield United U13s.

The ju­nior foot­ballers were aim­ing to win 10 out of 10 games, hav­ing been con­firmed as the form side of the Windsor & South Bucks Di­vi­sion Three a week ear­lier by beat­ing De­laford Colts thanks to hat-tricks from Joseph Brown and Alex Groves plus goals from Noah Tem­time and Ge­orge Scott.

But a dou­ble-fig­ure run of vic­to­ries proved just be­yond Harefield in a top-of-the-ta­ble clash with Chin­nor Youth with United’s ju­niors beaten by a late goal.

That put a place in the top two out of reach but three teams go up, so two wins in Harefield’s last three games will se­cure pro­mo­tion and all three matches are at their home base of Pre­ston Park, on Fri­day and Sun­day with the fi­nal game on May 28. That would be a huge achieve­ment for a rapidly im­prov­ing team.
