After a fine win yesterday, Town make the short journey to The Harlow Arena tomorrow to face Harlow Town, in a must win crunch match as we close in on a place in the Ryman Premier Division play-offs.

The Hawks gained promotion to the Premier Division last season and are currently 9th in the table. We beat them 3-0 at Donkey Lane on Boxing Day. This match will be a tough challenge, but Town are on a good run, with six successive wins behind them, and certainly won't be taking the Hawks lightly.

Harlow have lost 6 home league matches this season, against Dulwich, AFC Sudbury, Lowestoft Town, Havant & Waterlooville, Billericay, and Leiston.

Brad and the boys know what needs to be done, and will have plenty of loud away support.

Good luck everyone. Let's hear it for the Town!


'COME ON YOU TOWN'

What a day - what a result for The Town!

 

Most of the other scores have gone our way, with Needham drawing, and Dulwich and Tonbridge Angels losing. Wingate stay in touch winning 0-1 at Staines. Can imagine the celebrations over at Harlow! What an amazing end to the season! One more win and we will definitely be in the play-offs. Congratulations and very well done to Brad and our players! Let's finish the job guys!

Cagey first half but we had the better chances. Second half we settled into our stride and ran out easy winners against a bunch of thugs if I'm honest ! About 300 Town there in superb voice throughout. Three more wins and job done. I'm feeling very confident !

Harry was my man of the match. Battled for everything. If he didn't win a header, then he would be chasing after the ball to try and get it back. Was there for the first goal, but I'm sure it was an own goal. However, let him have it for putting their defender under pressure. Cracking second goal and never let their defenders have time on the ball.

 

Cracking result.

I thought the whole team performed well today against a team hell bent on kicking lumps out of our players.. There was only one team in it from start to finish. The travelling Towners were nice and vocal. . Seemed more like a home game..Anyone see what the pony tailed sub did to Shults? Definitely a marked man, the Harlow boys seemed to kick him whenever they got the  chance

 

Roll on Saturday.

What an enjoyable afternoon for all involved with the Town! Huge credit to Brad, his management team and the whole squad of players for keeping this impressive run of wins going - whatever happens on Saturday you're a credit to the club.

 

First half I thought was quite even but we outplayed Harlow in the second. Some unsavoury incidents towards the end but I think a few of their players simply lost their cool on a difficult afternoon - never nice to see your dream of promotion die and I expect them to be back up there next season. David Hughes & Stanley Muguo remain very good players and I'm glad we didn't see the best of Alex Read!

 

Hope Harry's ok after the 'rugby' tackle around his neck - would have been a red card even for the egg chasers!

Well said Anfield Towner, I am sure everyone agrees with your comments. It has been a great Easter weekend for our Club, and there is every chance of more to come. I would like to take this opportunity to wish Brad and our players the best of luck against Leiston and, hopefully, in the Ryman Play Off Semi-Final. Sadly I will miss these matches as we fly out to Tenerife tomorrow, and will be away 18-29 April. Will be keeping close tabs on our progress and, fingers crossed, will be back in time for the Play Off Final. See you there! COYT

      Good to drawn at home in the FA Cup today. An interesting match for everyone to look forward to. Be interested to hear other Towners thoughts, hopes, expectations for this match, which is worth quite a lot of prize money for the winners.

      Despite heavy rain, after a mid-morning pitch inspection, todays League fixture against Harrow Borough at Earlsmead Stadium, is expected to go ahead, subject to there not being a deluge before kick off.

      Town have already played Harrow twice this season at the QE2 Stadium, beating their Middlesex rivals 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup, and 3-0 in the League on New Year's Day.

      Todays third encounter will be far from a pushover, and Town will need to build on their recent improved performances and results, if we are to collect maximum points on this wet Bank Holiday afternoon. Good luck to Andy and the boys!  COYT

      Tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon Town extend a warm welcome to our opponents Met Police for our third Bostik League Premier Division fixture of the season at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. KO 3.00pm.
       
      Last Tuesday evening, while we were losing 3-0 at Hendon in a challenging North London derby, the Blues went down by a similar margin, losing 4-1 away to newly promoted side Dorking Wanderers. The Met won their opening home match, beating Worthing 3-1 at Imber Court.
       
      Both teams will be looking to bounce back this weekend, after their disappointing mid-week defeats, and another very close, tight contest is in prospect.
       
      Next April is a long way off, there are 44 more league fixtures left, so plenty of points to play for, and Andy, Darren, and our new squad of players, deserve plenty of noisy support and encouragement tomorrow, as they battle to secure our first win of the season.
       
      GOOD LUCK, LADS!

      READY TO GO!
       
      It's back, and there is plenty to look forward to on Saturday afternoon, when Town host Folkestone Invicta at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, in our opening Bostik League Premier Division fixture.
       
      After all the comings and goings during the summer, optimism is high that Town can make a good start to the new season, with our new management duo Andy Leese and Darren Purse in charge, and an impressive squad of quality close season signings.
       
      Be interesting to hear peoples thoughts on how Town are probably going to line-up against Invicta on Saturday afternoon.
       
      Folkestone seem likely to be without striker Joe Taylor and influential mid-fielder Micheal Everitt for this match. Taylor has damaged his knee, whilst Everitt picked up a groin strain last weekend.
       
      Last season, back in April, Town beat Invicta 3-1 at the QE Stadium. Will we chalk up another win? What do you think? How do you see the outcome?
       
      One thing for sure, this is going to be another close, very exciting match. Let's be there to show our support for Andy and our guys, as they look to deliver our first win of the new season.

      Earlier today Town travelled up to the West Midlands for a commemorative friendly match against Highgate United at The Coppice this afternoon (3.00pm).

      The match has special significance for those of us who were at that fateful Highgate United v Enfield FC, FA Amateur Cup game, 50 years ago, and witnessed Highgate player Tony Allden being struck by lightning and dying shortly after.

      Today, as we remember that very sad event, the occasion and ongoing friendship between the two clubs, seems much more important than the outcome.
