Last night (Wednesday) they sealed the Capital League Western Division title with a 1-0 win over Hemel Hempstead Town. Kurt Morlese got the winner which saw Borough pip Hayes & Yeading United to the title by just a point. He also struck the only goal of the game in Monday's President's Cup final triumph over Bromley. Several of the youngsters are now set to enjoy action in David Howell's first team squad for the 2010/11 Ryman Premier League season.
“What they have achieved this season is remarkable, said first team boss Howell. “They are in a division with the likes of Hayes & Yeading, a Blue Square Premier outfit, and Staines who have a good academy set-up. To compete with these sides and come out on top is a very, very good achievement when you consider the limited resources we have.
“Some of them will be signed up for next season as we bring them through to the first team.”
Meanwhile, Howell says he will have a clearer indication of the sort of squad he will have for next season once the club's awards bash has taken place this weekend.
The Borough manager wants several experienced campaigners on board to help the younger players along.
“I hope to keep the squad together and make a few more senior additions,” he added. “Our form dipped when Tobi (Jinadu) and Kwasi (Frempong) were injured and when we lost Dewayne Clarke to Boreham Wood. They are three senior players and it left us thin – it clearly had an effect on our performances.
“But we may have to move on one or two players before we bring anyone in.”
Howell admits he will have to rely on his powers of persuasion to entice older players to the club as his budget is expected to be one of the smallest in the division again.
“I would hope to have at least the same budget as last season. It would be good to have a little bit more but I understand our situation.
“Experienced players cost money but hopefully we can get players in who believe what we are trying to do and who know they will be appreciated here.”
