Harrow Borough went the first seven games of the 2022/23 Pitching In Southern League Premier Division South season without a win – and then Monday night made it back-to-back victories with a 3-1 success at Beaconsfield Town.

Steve Baker’s side broke their duck at the weekend with a 1-0 win at home to North Leigh, and they had to come from behind at Holloway’s Park as Nathan Minhas out Beaconsfield in front on the half-hour mark.

Billy Leonard – Saturday’s goalscoring hero – equalised right on the stroke of half-time.

And then 8 minutes after the break, Leonard scored again to give Harrow the lead.

Then right at the death, the former North Greenford United man got the chance to complete his first half-trick at Step 3 level when Boro were awarded a penalty, which he duly despatched.

The other game in the division saw Hanwell Town slip into third spot after sharing a 1-1 draw at The SB Stadium against the team who they came up alongside from the Isthmian League South Central, Bracknell Town.

The hosts got off to a great start when Jordan Espirit put them in front after less than 5 minutes from the penalty spot.

The Geordies, who have made the better start to life in the Southern League, were back on level terms though on the half-hour mark through Calum Duffy.

But neither side were able to find a winner.
