Harrow Borough secured their first FA Cup win for three years with a 5-0 success over Hellenic League side Binfield to advance into the second qualifying round.

Michael Bryan’s penalty opened the scoring and was added to by George Moore before the break, and a two goals for Anthony O’Connor in the second half came either side of another Moore strike to seal their passage.

Steve Baker handed a first start to Kunle Otudeko as he shook up the squad for the cup tie, while Josh Andrew and Kensley Maloney returned to the line-up.

With Harrow failing to make the most of their early opportunities, Binfield seized the chance to give them a scare with Jack Thomson-Wheeler and Sean Moore both coming close for the visitors.

However, calamity in their own penalty area allowed Borough to take the lead when goalkeeper Joe Williams dropped a high ball, and in the ensuing scramble, Idris Kamara tripped O’Connor, with Bryan stepping up to tuck away the resulting penalty.

Shortly after, some good build-up from Harrow allowed them to double the lead when Otudeko laid it off for Moore, and he blasted home from just outside the box.

After a couple of nervy moments in the first half, Borough were looking far more assured in the second, although it did take them until the 77th minute to really kill off the game. Moore played in Andrew on the right, and his cross provided an easy finish for O’Connor.

With Binfield tiring, Harrow took advantage and made it four on 85 minutes when O’Connor cut back for Moore to fire in again, and the former rounded things off for Borough, driving in a fifth in the dying seconds.

Borough will meet Isthmian Premier Division side Carshalton Athletic at home in the second qualifying round, but first face tests away at Beaconsfield Town in the League Cup tonight and then another trip to Poole Town in the Southern League Premier Division South on Saturday.
