Non-League Football

The top non-league club – why it’s Haringey, of course!

Coles ParkAs the New Year gets underway, only three non-league clubs have a 90%-plus record this season and they are all playing in the lower regions of the game. Essex Senior League side Haringey Borough are top of the pile with a near 95% record – 54 points from 19 games.

Haringey, whose ground is in Tottenham (since when was Tottenham in Essex?) actually have the best overall record in non-league football in 2014. Like many London non-league clubs, they have undergone something of a confusing evolution, tracing themselves back to Tufnell Park FC – FA Amateur Cup runners-up in 1919-20 – Wood Green Town and Edmonton, until becoming Haringey Borough in 1976.

Haringey’s only league defeat this season came in September when they were beaten 0-1 at home by FC Romania.

Welwyn Garden City from the Spartan South Midlands League Division One have a 91.2% record this season, with 17 wins and one draw from 19 times.

Further north, North West Counties One side Atherton Collieries have a 90% record, with 15 wins and a draw from 17 games.

The highest step three club in the rankings is Weymouth of the Southern League Premier, who have lost twice this season.
