Football: A tale of two Harlows

THE VERY BEST and the very worst of Harlow Town was on display over the Bank Holiday.

Ryman Div One North


Ware 0 v 5 Harlow

Alex Read scored four and showed why he was such a deadly striker for Tilbury a couple of seasons ago.

Harlow did well as the conditions were atrocious and it was testament to the Ware groundstaff that the game was on.

Read tapped in from close range in the third minute for the first goal. It was close to the half hour when he scored the second, latching on to a Junior Dadson cross.

Junior Dadson scored the third as he outpaced a defender and shot low and hard in the 36th minute.

But a further two by Read in the 48th and 56th minutes put Harlow out of sight.


Harlow Town 3 v 4 Waltham Abbey

Harlow were 3-0 up and looked set to repeat their victory against Ware, when the wheels came off and they lost 4-3 to the Abbey.

Junior Dadson, Danny Brown and Alex Read scored three goals in the first half hour.

The defence leaked five against Thurrock and they showed a “leakiness” again against the Abbey.

However, Waltham Abbey struck back as they scored three in a seven minute spell with Darelle Russell heading home in the 36th minute, Joe Pearman in the 39th minute and Ayrton Coley then made it 3-3 after a 70 yard run in the 43rd.

Chris Sargent scored the winner with a header for the visitors in the 62nd minute.

The results leave the Hawks in sixth place but they will want to show a lot more consistency.
