British Timken Duston aren’t a side you should confuse with the Athletic version of this side. We didn’t beat Duston 11-1 for a start! Looking at our past league titles, Boro’ had some tight battles and fierce rivals to overcome. Think the 1985-6 season, when Kingsbury Town took it down to the final day. Or Enfield’s relentless push as we won the Diadora League Premier Division? We’d even give the lads at Woking some credit for our 1995-6 title push. In the case of our first title, it was only British Timken Duston who came anywhere close to stopping us finishing on top of the pile.
After getting promoted with us from United Counties League Division One at the end of the 1980-1 campaign, Duston couldn’t stick around with us; falling back down at the end of the 1981-2 campaign. They stayed at that level until 1995, when the club left the UCL. By this point, they’d also dropped Duston from their name.
