ADAM Cash is gunning for the No2 shirt at Harrow Borough – but will face increasing opposition for the role.
Cash, son of former Nottingham Forest left-back Stuart, is considered a bright prospect at Earlsmead and caught the eye in an impressive debut from the bench in Borough 3-1 defeat to Hendon on Tuesday night.
However, in the wake of the reverse, the Observer understands a deal was struck between Reds’ boss Dave Anderson (pictured) and Hendon counterpart Gary McCann to switch former Watford defender Brandon Horner from the tenants of Earlmead to the landlords.
The deal is expected to be completed today, allowing Horner to be in contention for Saturday’s FA cup tie at home to North Greenford. But teenager Cash is up for the fight.
He said: “The target is now to work my way into the first team. It is a big step straight from U18s into men’s football, but I want that No.2 shirt. I’ve been working hard physically and on my mental game. My dad loved a tackle and I’ve picked it up from him. He was a left-back, so I am the opposite side, but I’ve got a left peg on me and can use it.”
Goals from Sean Lucien, Jordan Berry and Marcel Barrington had given Harrow a 3-1 home win over Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday, while Tatsuya Fujioka hit a hat-trick as Wembley hammered Potton United 6-0 in the FA Vase, with Yassine Fehmi-Gil, Alex Mokeni and Adrian Dinham also on target. But Rayners Lane threw away a 3-0 lead earned through Callum McCallum double and a Daniel Chadbourne strike to draw 3-3 with Penn & Tylers Green.
