Who are they?
Tufnell Park were established in 1907 and joined the London Spartan League in 1910. In 1912 they switched to the Athenian League, which they won in 1913–14.After World War I they joined the Isthmian League, and reached the final of the FA Amateur Cup in the 1919–20 season, losing 1–0 to Dulwich Hamlet.

In 1973 the club merged with Wood Green Town, which had been a breakaway from Tufnell Park in 1911, playing as Tufnell Spartans until 1920, and moved to Wood Green's Coles Park. The new club was named Edmonton & Haringey, before adopting its current name in 1976.

In 1984 the club joined Division Two North of the Isthmian League. They left the league in 1988 and had a season without playing, before joining the Premier Division of the Spartan League in 1989. They were renamed Tufnell Park in 1995, but changed back to Haringey Borough after a season.

The club was transferred to the Essex Senior League for the 2013-14 season, where their tenants Greenhouse London also play.

On 18 April 2015 Haringey Borough FC clinched the Essex Senior League trophy with a 3-2 victory over Bowers & Pitsea and gained promotion to the Isthmian League Division One North.

Can Borough be the Surprise Package of 2015/16 campaign?
Short answer, yes. They have the momentum and with the players if they can keep most from last seasons league champions, then they will definitely be a force to be reckoned with. Many have touted them as the dark horses in the league and other see them making a big charge towards the Ryman North play off places. Only time will tell in the 2015/16 Ryman North campaign.
