Loizou's side triumphed 3-0 over their lower league opponents, with Lionel Stone giving his side the lead before half time.

Georgios Aresti then added a second on 70 minutes before Anthony McDonald scored a third five minutes from time as Boro banked the £4,500 in prize money.

Haringey reached the first round proper last season, losing out to AFC Wimbledon, and will now face Staines Town at home in the second qualifying round.

"I was quite pleased with the second half performance, I wasn't that impressed with the first half," Loizou said.
