Harrow Borough FC appoint new first team manager

Harrow Borough Football Club have announced the appointment of Ben Bukowski as the new First Team Manager.

Ben, 30, joins Harrow from Northwood, where he had been the first team manager for two and a half seasons, steering the club away from what looked certain relegation in his first term, and reaching the Isthmian Division One South Central play-offs in his second.

Ben brings with him his management team from Northwood: Assistant Manager Keagan Cole, known to many at The Rogers Family Stadium from his time at Hendon; joint First Team Coaches Jacob Cook and Dennis Quigley; and Goalkeeping Coach Nic Collins. Outside of football, the team is close-knit and well-versed in expressing a range of opinions before reaching a single decision.

Reflecting on his appointment, Ben said, “Harrow Borough are one of the biggest clubs in Middlesex, respected across non-league circles and with a rich history. They’ve played a part in the development of some big names too. It’s very exciting to lead the club as we prepare for life at Non-League Step 4. We know it will be a competitive division, and will want to be one of the 8-10 teams who we think will be challenging for promotion.”

Club Chairman Peter Rogers added, “We had close on 30 candidates put their names forward for the job and whittled down those names to a very strong short-list. Ben emerged as a clear winner, impressing us with his ideas and ambition, and was the unanimous choice of our interview panel.”

Away from his job at The Rogers Family Stadium, Ben is employed as Head of Football in the Chelsea Football Foundation Study Programme at Stanmore College.
