If you were at the start of the Boro’ adventure, you’ll know Higham Town were one of the first sides that we came up against. After coming up against us in our first-ever season of senior football, the club merged with Rushden Rangers in 2007. For four straight seasons, the club were runners-up in United Counties League Division One between 1992 and 1996. In 1998, however, they went one better and won the title. As for our record against ’em, it’s impressive; twice winning 5-1. First it was during the 1980-1 league campaign, then it was in the United Counties League Cup in the 1983-4 season.
Since that 2007 merger with Rushden Rangers, a new Town side has come to life.
