WHAT do Arsenal and Harefield United have in common? At the moment very little, but by the end of April, they may have a unique bond.

Harefield are currently 33 league games into the season, winning 31 and drawing two, with five games to go.

If they can get to the end of April with nil In the losses common, they will join Arsenal as having gone a whole season undefeated.

Harefield were formed in 1868 and are the oldest club in Middlesex. The club has had a number of names throughout its history, one of the earliest being Harefield Victoria, where the local paper of 1891 has a match report of a 1-0 win over Rickmansworth Rovers, the goal being scored by G Harland.

The club has spent the majority of its time since the 1970s in either the Isthmian League and, since the 1990s, the Spartan South Midlands.

The 1995/96 season proved to be the last in the Isthmian League. Due to lack of funds to carry out ground improvements, the Hares resigned and were allocated to the Spartan League for the following season.

The club has twice missed out twice on promotion, the second time on goal difference to Biggleswade Town.

Even though the village of Harefield had a population of 11,000 in the 2011 census, the record attendance at Preston Park is 430, for a FA Vase tie against Bashley, which the Hares won 1-0. 

This season, the signing of Richard Pacquette, 36, a striker who has played in the Football League with QPR, has helped the young squad sit top of the division. His 18 goals, alongside the 30 of Lenny Farhall, the club has topped the century mark.
