Our Opponents

The current Harrowby United club re-formed in 2012 following the closure of an earlier club that had previously held that name before becoming Grantham Rangers. The original club was formed in 1949 and entered the UCL in 1990, resigning from the league in 2006. After reentering the UCL Division One in 2012 they spent two seasons at that level, finishing third last season and being invited to move up to the UCL Premier.

Earlier this season the two sides met at Dickens Road, and it took a fine Joe Merrill goal to secure a late 2-1 victory for the visitors – report here.

The Arrows are managed by Mark Fardell and Jay Harrison, and their club colours are red and black. Their club website is here, and their twitter feed here.
