KEN Charlery will remain in charge at Harrow until after the New Year’s Day clash with Hendon.
That was the word from boss Dave Howell this week after he returned from his Christmas break in Barbados with his family.
Right-hand man Charlery presided over two excellent away wins at Kingstonian and Billericay in Howell’s absence, extending Borough’s unbeaten run in all competitions to eight matches.
And for Howell, it makes sense to let the former league striker keep hold of the reins a little longer.
He said: "I’ll leave Ken at the helm for Saturday and he’ll pick the team.
"He would have picked the team for the Wealdstone game as I only arrived at the airport on Monday morning and I’ve still got one foot in Barbados.
"It means I haven’t seen the team for more than two weeks, so I’ll cut my teeth again at the Wingate and Finchley London Senior Cup tie on Monday."
One man introduced by Charlery in Howell’s absence was former Accrington Stanley defender Chris King, and the
full-back made a positive impression scoring in the win over Billericay.
Howell revealed it is an introduction he and Charlery have wanted to make for some time.
He said: "We always thought Chris would strike up a good relationship with Ryan Watts, but he needed some minutes under his belt in the reserves.
"He’s got the experience in league football and he’s settled in really well."
