History

The club was established in 1973 by a merger of Edmonton and Haringey Borough (formerly Wood Green Town), and was initially named Edmonton & Haringey. [2] The new club took Edmonton's place in Division One of the Athenian League, and adopted their current name after finishing bottom of the division in 1975–76. [3] The league was reduced to a single division in 1977 and the club finished bottom of the league in 1981–82.

When the Athenian League was disbanded at the end of the 1983–84 season, Haringey joined Division Two North of the Isthmian League. [4] With many of the players and the management team leaving shortly before the start of the 1988–89 season, the club dropped out of the league, before joining the Premier Division of the Spartan League for the 1989–90 season. [2] In 1990–91 the club won the London Senior Cup. [2] In 1995 they were renamed Tufnell Park, taking the name of one of the clubs that had merged to form Edmonton, but reverted to the Haringey Borough name the following year. [4] When the Spartan League merged with the South Midlands League in 1997 to form the Spartan South Midlands League, the club were placed in Premier Division South for the 1997–98 season; a seventh-place finish saw them placed in the Premier Division for the following season. [4]

Haringey were relegated to Division One at the end of the 2006–07 season, which had seen them finish bottom of the Premier Division. However, they were Division One runners-up the following season, earning an immediate promotion back to the Premier Division; [4] the season also saw them win the Division One Cup. [2] In 2011–12 the club won the league's Challenge Trophy. [2] At the end of the season they were transferred to the Essex Senior League, where their Coles Park tenants Greenhouse London also played. The 2014–15 season saw the club win the Essex Senior League, earning promotion to Division One North of the Isthmian League. [5]

In 2016–17 Haringey finished fifth in Division One North, qualifying for the promotion play-offs. However, they lost 5–4 to Maldon & Tiptree in the semi-finals. The club finished fourth in the division the following season, and after beating Heybridge Swifts 2–0 in the semi-finals, they won the final 3–1 against Canvey Island to secure promotion to the Premier Division. The 2018–19 season saw the club reach the first round of the FA Cup for the first time, going on to lose 1–0 at home to AFC Wimbledon. [6] In October 2019, the Haringey players left the pitch during an FA Cup fourth qualifying round game against Yeovil Town after the Haringey goalkeeper, Valery Pajetat, was reportedly spat at and hit by an object thrown from the Yeovil Town end. The Metropolitan Police announced their intention to investigate the incident. [7]

The club have played at Coles Park since their establishment; the ground had been home to Wood Green Town since 1930. [2] The ground currently has a capacity of 2,500, of which 280 is seated. [1] A new record attendance was set on 16 December 2017 when a crowd of 1,133 saw Haringey lose 2–1 to Leyton Orient in their first appearance in the first round of the FA Trophy. [8] This was bettered on 9 November 2018 for the FA Cup first round match with AFC Wimbledon, which had an attendance of 2,710. [9] On 23 March 2019, a record league attendance of 875 was set for a 3–1 win over local rivals Enfield Town. [10]
