HERE are the results for the Harlow and District Football League. Week beginning September 1st. Imoressive victory for Parsloe Athletic against Lindsay Street.
DESPITE a brave resistance in the first half, Tower Hamlets were steamrollered by Harlow Town in a 4-1 victory at Barrows Farm. The Essex Senior League team held out until just before half time when Leon Antoine headed home from close range.
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.
THURROCK put on an outstanding display to win comfortably against a Harlow side who had started the season in good form. It was Mark Stimson’s men who took the initiative early on when Joel Nouble headed home Anton Blackwoods cross in the 9th minute. Just 5 minutes later Thurrock extended their lead when Brad Warner started and finished a move which involved Lewis Perkins (pictured) and a ball across from Nouble to make it 2-0.
HARLOW TOWN completed a great first week of the season with a fine 3-0 win against Tilbury at Barrows Farm. Tilbury have had a dreadful start to the season and were not looking forward to coming to Barrows Farm, where Harlow have already built up a fair reputation.
HARLOW TOWN made a great debut on their new 3G pitch with a devastating 8-3 victory against new boys Barkingside at Barrows Farm. The Hawks took an early lead in the 9th minute through a Michael Akande header from a corner. But the lead only lasted four minutes as Barkingside were awarded and coverted a penalty in the 13th minute.
SOHAM is not the easiest place to go for a draw so Harlow Town will be pleased to have left the Fens with a point in their pocket. And Soham boss Steve Fallon and his young team were frustrated by a well organised and hard working Hawks.
IT HAS been an injury-ravaged season for Harlow AC’s Andrew Osagie so we should not expect too much from Andrew but nevertheless he cruised through his heat in the World Athletics champs in Moscow on Saturday morning. Running in the third heat, Andrew clocked 1.46.16 to finish third and qualify for Sunday’s semi-final.
HARLOW Town will travel to the Fens for their first game of the season as they travel to Soham Town Rangers. Soham finished strongly last season so the Hawks will need to be on their guard.
HARLOW TOWN have confirmed that Piers Wixon won’t be re-signing for the Hawks for the forthcoming season. After a recent holiday and talks with various clubs, Wixon has decided to join another Ryman Division One North club.
Harlow Town have drawn Leatherhead of the Ryman Div One South in the FA Cup. If they beat the Surrey side, then they will go on to play Lewes at the Dripping Pan.
