Cricket: Harlow CC in “bad-tempered” draw with Southend

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. Ennio Morricone’s theme to the classic spaghetti western would have provided an appropriate accompaniment to this match.

Alan Jones (14) struggled to find any tempo to his innings before being bowled in the eighteenth over.

Waqas (8) was clean bowled and the departure of Alan Jones (3) and Rehman Ahmed (0) left Harlow floundering on 25-3.
