HARROW BOROUGH REVEAL NEW MANAGER
He joins from Ryman South side Chipstead for whom he had been 1st Team Manager since 2013 beating 30 other applicants to the much sought after post at Earlsmead.
He replaces Dave Anderson who stood down as Boro’ Manager earlier in the month, but has continued to look after the side until a replacement had been appointed. It is expected that Dave’s last game in charge will be the re-arranged Middlesex Senior Cup Quarter Final clash at North Greenford United on Tuesday when he will introduce the new man to the players before finally handing over the reins.
During an illustrious playing career Steve Baker carved out a big reputation with Hayes (1992-97), Yeading (1997-98), Hendon (1998-99) and Egham Town (2001-02) before becoming player coach with Chertsey Town (2003-07).
He had begun his coaching career working for franchise soccer schools in conjunction with Arsenal and Chelsea and continued to develop them as 1st Team Coach at St Albans City (2007-08).
After 2 years as manager at Egham Town (2009-11) he continued to hone his coaching skills with Beaconsfield Sycob (2011-12) and Wingate & Finchley (2012-13) before moving back into management with Walton & Hersham in 2013. His stay at Stompond Lane was short lived before he moved on to Chipstead.
He joins Boro’ who are currently lying in 23rd position in the Ryman Premier Division, although just 3 points away from 20th and a position outside the relegation positions.
