Harrow Borough picked up their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw against Weston-Super-Mare on Saturday.

They had led in the match through George Moore’s terrific solo effort, but a Nick McCootie equaliser less than ten minutes later restored parity, with neither side going on to score a winner.

Steve Baker made one change to the Harrow line-up but it was a significant one, dropping Southampton loanee keeper Matthew Hall and bringing in Dan Purdue with the former having made the blunder that had given Chesham their winner on the previous Tuesday night.

Purdue was in early action making a regulation save from Matt Jones’s low left-foot shot. But it was Harrow, attacking the school end, who went in front, in the 16th minute. Moore collected the ball out on the left before cutting in and across the edge of the Weston box and letting fly with a 20-yarder that Luke Purnell got his left hand to but could not keep out.

More was asked of Purdue soon after when he turned over a drive from Dayle Grubb, while Ben Tricker and Jordan Ireland combined to stop Jacob Jagger-Cane.

However, the visitors eventually found a way through in the 24th minute with a solo goal to match Moore’s, as McCootie made a mazy run past three red defenders and cracked a left-footer past Purdue’s left hand.

Both sides had opportunities to win it during the remainder of the match, but a point was arguably a fair result, if not a frustrating one.

Super-Mare boss Scott Bartlett allowed his annoyance to get the better of him and was shown a red card as the players were shaking hands.
