Ryman Div One North
Harlow Town 3 v 1 Maldon and Tiptree
HARLOW cruised to victory to earn three points and set-up a season defining top-of the table clash away to Needham Market.
Lifted by the news that top-scorer Alex Read had a place on the bench following an injury lay-off, Harlow nevertheless found themselves behind to an early goal.
The Hawks got back in the game thanks to a bit of good fortune, an own goal drawing the scores level, before Jamie Guy converted a penalty and then set-up Junior Dadson in the second half to secure the win.

FT: Harlow Town 2-1 Maldon & Tiptree
The win puts Harlow on 99 points, still a point off league-leaders Needham Market. Now guaranteed at least second place, the Hawks can go into next weekend’s top-of-the-table clash with nothing to lose. A Harlow win will put the title firmly in the hands of the Hawks, while a draw would rely on other results going Harlow’s way. A win for Needham Market, however, will take the title to Suffolk.
With a supporter’s coach amongst the travelling support, there is bound to be a huge crowd in what will be the biggest game for Harlow since the playoff final last season.
Kick off is at 3pm on Saturday 18th April away to Needham Market FC.
