Harefield completely outplayed yesterday, and lucky to get away with only a 4-1 defeat. What makes it even worse is that although officially 'Cockfosters Reserves', back at Chalk lane they are re

No, sorry R, I couldn't do Thursday. Good to see that Harefield have some points on the board anyway.  They are a good club, doing the right things.

Dom you are a non league ⚽ man through and through. Welcome back 👍

I missed the game last night, as i'm still self isolating, but by all accounts Edgeware played very well and definitely capitalized on a bad day in the office. the L had to come at some point. I hope to back at training for Thursday, so we can start to put right those mistakes and keep going with the good start we've made.

the Reserve side's Herts Senior County League Premier Division fixture with Sandridge Rovers at Preston Park was called off yesterday, they entertain Welwyn Garden City Under 23's on Saturday (10 October) having only won 3-1 at Herns Lane last week (26 September) with goals from Samuel Adetiba and a brace from Gurkan Gokmen (see match report):

https://www.welwyngardencityfc.org.uk/Matchreport.aspx?id=469781

Harefield United Reserves renewed acquaintances with Welwyn Garden City Under 23's last Saturday in the Herts Senior County League Premier Division, this time at Preston Park, having won 3-1 at Herns Lane only two weeks before. On this occasion it was even more comprehensive with Jamie Derby's men running out 5-0 winners (see match report) with goals from Samuel Adetiba, Gary Edwards, Petrit Kransniqi, Zak Jackson and, who else, Gurkan Gokmen, this Saturday (17 October) Ware Sports will be shaking in their boots at the prospect of travelling to Preston Park now Harefield United Reserves have found their feet in their new environment this season after a sluggish start. They have also found out who their opponents will be in the First Round of the Middlesex FA Premier Cup and Enfield Borough have the pleasure of visiting Preston Park in week commencing Monday 16 November which, on paper at least, Mani Asare and Shaun Reece's men should come through but then football is not played on paper. As for the First team, they will participate in the Middlesex FA Senior Challenge Cup however have received a bye in the First Round, of far more importance to boss Jason Shaw will be this evening's visit to Tithe Farm to take on former Preston Park tenants Broadfields United who have started their campaign slowly albeit having played just three League fixtures, they will still be feeling dejected after exiting the FA Vase last Saturday on home 'soil' to Milton Keynes Irish, on Saturday Harefield United make the trip to Pancake Lane to face Leverstock Green:

This afternoon's team sheet and match programme for the visit to Pancake Lane to take on Leverstock Green, I understand that it is good news so far for Harefield United as they lead 2-0 approaching the hour mark with goals from Harry McCorkell on eleven minutes and Samuel Adetiba just before the half time whistle sounded. It could have been three as a spot kick was missed, furthermore Lindell Stewart needlessly saw red on the half hour mark however the ten men are performing very well. Harefield United Reserves are also in action this afternoon at Preston Park against Ware Sports and the score there is currently, and disappointingly, 3-0 to the visitors, it's unclear what is going so horribly wrong after three successive Herts Senior County League Premier Division wins:

This evening's (Tuesday 27 October) Harefield United team sheet for the SSML Premier Division fixture with Oxhey Jets at the Boundary Stadium, Oxhey Jets currently lead 6-0 with just under ten minutes left to play in what has been a disappointing night for the visitors to say the least:

Disappointing to say the least. We were thoroughly outplayed against a very skillful and dynamic jets team. I saw one comment on here that it was men against boys, and i don't disagree. I have worked out that with injuries and suspensions we have a full 11 players out, 8 of which you would say would be starters. No team in this league could cope with that amount changes especially to key personnel who help dictate the tempo of the game and control the style of football. We just need to find a way to compete until we have a fit squad again, and hopefully regain some of that early season form that put us in such a good postion.

He's one of those 11 i speak of. Its great to have him still there on matchday but we miss him on the pitch.

Yes, what do you make of that, maybe Richard's days at the Club are numbered as this is his third season at Preston Park, he's 38 years old in January and may feel like a new challenge at yet another Club before he finally hangs up his boots:

Losing Harry McCorkell has been devastating certainly, but not sure there are 11 out who would ordinarily start. Not sure either about the wisdom of starting Mallett instead of Ballheimer between the sticks, Putnam's second was a shocking goal to concede all round, not least as he shot from an acute angle low into the near post and the keeper was virtually on the near post but still let it in! 

Pacman gees up the troops and leads from the front, enjoy watching such a wily campaigner and was sorry he didn't feature, think a recent red card may explain why he was on the bench, and at 6 down why risk him getting another when it was getting a bit naughty (Hares a bit lucky to finish with 11, frustration got to a couple).

Farhall normally has plenty to say for himself, mainly to his team mates (not often complimentary), funny how quiet he was last night. In fact a feature of watching Harefield is how much they argue amongst themselves, and while understandable in the circumstances it was fairly muted compared with many a time at Preston Park. Still think Steven Green is a cracking player, but even he had a very quiet game by his standards.

I hope the Hares get back on track soon, many more performances like that though and they'll be locked in a relegation battle.

Still think he has plenty to offer on and off the pitch at Step 5 level for a couple more seasons.

6 goals in 11 games this season 👍

17 goals last season and 21 goals for the invincibles the season before that.

Nothing to do with form. When fit he is one of the first names on the team sheet.

Both Harefield United's First team and Reserve team were all dressed up with nowhere to go this afternoon as their fixtures at Preston Park against Arlesey Town and at Ware Sports respectively were called off due to waterlooged pitches. The Reserve side try again next Saturday (7 November) when they entertain Belstone in a Herts Senior County League Premier Division fixture having lost their last two League outings, 3-1 to today's scheduled opponents Ware Sports at Preston Park and 3-0 at Chipperfield Corinthians last Saturday however there was a positive 6-3 Aubrey Cup First Round home win over Second Division Baldock Town Reserves last Wednesday evening with goals from Gary Burrell, Petrit Krasniqi, Archie Oaks, Zak Jackson and a brace from Ross Shorto, they will now travel to Chipperfield Corinthians in the Second Round. Meanwhile the First team entertain North Greenford United on Tuesday (3 November), weather permitting, followed by a visit to Hitchin Road to take on Baldock Town next Saturday, boss Jason Shaw will be hoping to stop the rot of successive 5-2 and 6-0 League defeats.

The Harefield United team sheet and match programme from Tuesday evening's fiixture with North Greenford United resulting in a 2-1 win with goals from, who else, Richard Pacquette after only three minutes and Thomas Payne in the dying embers of the game after North Greenford United had equalised on 80 minutes. Saturday's (7 November) scheduled visit to Baldock Town and the Reserves Herts Senior County League Premier Division fixture with Belstone at Preston Park are postponed as there is now unfortunately an enforced 'lay off' until Saturday 5 December due to the Covid-19 lockdown when Jason Shaw's men will hopefully, and coincidentally, be travelling to North Greenford United:

An interesting programme from 1986/87 when Harefield United were an Isthmian League Division Two South Club, having just made the switch from Division Two North where they were the season before. Having beaten Corinthian Casuals 3-0 at Preston Park in the FA Cup First Qualifying Round they drew 2-2 with mighty Southern League Premier Division Aylesbury United in a thriller at Preston Park having trailed 2-0 at the interval, losing the replay at Buckingham Road 2-0 with 903 in attendance, Cliff Hercules scored both goals for The Ducks. The sides had also met in a 1983/84 Preliminary Round tie at Buckingham Road where Aylesbury United also won 2-0, Harefield United were then in the Athenian League, the season before moving to the Isthmian League Division Two North due to the Athenian League sadly disbanding having been in existence since 1912/13:
