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.
The Arrows are managed by Mark Fardell, and their club colours are red and black. After a difficult start to their first season at this level their form has significantly improved recently, taking them into the top-half of the table. Since the Diamonds visited they have signed several new players, including ex-Grantham defender Billy Stubbs from Holwell Sports and striker Greg Smith from Stamford.
