Football: Harlow triumph against an old enemy

HARLOW Town evoked memories of one of their most famous campaigns with a 3-2 Essex Senior Cup Third Round win over Football League club Southend United on Saturday. In 1979/80, the Hawks reached the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, disposing of Southend and Leicester City before eventually being defeated by a Watford side managed by future England boss Graham Taylor. Although this success in the BBC Essex-supported competition may not reach the national acclaim of 34 years ago, it was an impressive display by the Ryman League outfit against United’s promising youngsters.

Football: Harlow Town crash to another defeat

THE phrase don’t judge a book by its cover was put to use as Harlow went down 4-0 at Leatherhead in a game where the home side had about as many shots as goals.

Harlow took the early initiative with on form frontman Alex Read going close from inside the six yard box, but only to see his shot well blocked on the line and scrambled to safety. Read looked dangerous again midway through the first half as he played a great ball across goal to Junior Dadson but the pacey winger was unable to turn his shot the right side of the post. Harlow definitely looked to have grabbed the early impetus and looked set to score again just after the half hour mark.

Football: Hawks humbled by terrific Thurrock
