Harrow Borough made a winning start to their Southern League Premier Division campaign, firstly beating Merthyr Town 1-0 on the opening day before a 3-2 win away at Hayes & Yeading United on Tuesday.

Goals from Michael Bryan, Frank Keita and Anthony O’Connor ensured the winning start was extended in midweek.

Bryan gave Borough the lead after 29 minutes when he curled in from the edge of the box, but 10 minutes later the hosts had turned it around.

Firstly, James Clark rose highest to glance in a cross from the right and, just six minutes later, Ogo Obi turned inside the box and hit a deflected effort that wrong-footed Hafed Al-Droubi before going in.

An entertaining half was capped off by one more goal though, and it was Borough who got it to level the game, Frank Keita dispatching a penalty after O’Connor was brought down.

The second half was undoubtedly less entertaining, but it contained the decisive goal that Borough craved. As the game looked to be heading for a draw, O’Connor got above everyone to head in Bryan’s free-kick and help them on their way to a 100% start.

Saturday’s opening game against Merthyr contained just the one goal, and it came from Bryan after 62 minutes with an exquisite free-kick.

O’Connor was fouled on the edge of the box and although it seemingly took a deflection, Bryan was credited with the goal that gave his side the lead.

It was a lead they held onto for the remainder, and Borough will be looking to continue their perfect start this Saturday away at Hartley Wintney.
