Match Report by Tony Middleton

With Garry Cross out for three weeks with a hamstring injury, Alex Fiddes came into starting line up, signed from East Thurrock during the week, and having previously played for Cambridge City, Chelmsford and Bishop’s Stortford. Kris Lee returned to the side after missing the match at Wingate.

Urchins, kicking towards the windmill end, started strongly, Janney taking a ground pass from Southon and streaking goalwards, only to be brought down in full flight. No booking, and Glozier’s free kick was stopped by the wall of massed Harlow defenders. Harlow, for whom this was a must-win match, enjoyed equal territorial position, but did not look like threatening the home goal, and when Hollenbach found Quistin out the left, Quistin hit his shot cum cross high over the bar. Parker, in inspirational form, exchanged a one two pass with Janney, whose centre was headed away by Kirby. Harlow had their best, in fact their only, chance of the half when Winston sent Quistin away on the left, and he cut inside, with Fletcher tackling well to concede a corner. Lalite sent the ball across, and the ball swerved in dangerously, coming off the bar, although Brightly was positioned to prevent it entering the net. And then Quistin appeared to follow through on Purdie, who went down with what to many seemed to be an elbow. Up strode the referee, out came his book, out came his card, with the East Side chanting off off off, and – it was yellow, to the obvious relief of the away supporters, about 50 of whom had come to find out what a real ground was like.

Southon, in his usual non stop midfield role, put an excellent pass out to the left, and the ball was played on to Kris Lee, who was clear, but pulled back for offside. Quistin, perhaps fortunate to remain on the field, hit a free kick into the middle, where Glozier touched out for a corner, and Wraight volleyed the ball high over the bar,

Parker again, with a one two with Fiddes, and Simon sped goalwards, his shot being deflected for a corner which Tomlinson played short to Janney and Mark’s centre dipped behind the goal. Lee then found himself through, only for Kirby to cut back and intercept. Glozier made a 60 yard run upfield, laying the ball out to Lee, but Taylor nipped back smartly to tackle. And then an electrifying solo run by Parker, who played an excellent pass out to Janney, whose cross was parried by Hasell, and thence out for a corner, which Janney took and Hasell grabbed at the second attempt, having punched the first high into the air. Parker again, a long solo dribble, and through to Lee, who was again pulled up for offside. Urchins piled on the pressure as half time approached, and it was Parker again, an immaculate pass to Janney, a cross, and Chapman hit the ball out for a throw in. Fletcher took the throw, to Janney, an inch perfect cross, and up rose Tomlinson, his goalbound header being fingertipped over the bar by Hasell. Right on the interval another long run by Parker was eventually stopped by Hollenbach.

At half time, Max went in search of some of someone to pull out the winning £110 jackpot ticket, which remained unclaimed for some considerable time. in the shop, the newly arrived videos were quickly selling out, the main attraction being the expert commentary and analysis. One overawed Urchin was heard to say that he had never heard a commentary like it – ever.

Very little to choose between the teams at half time, although Urchins had the better of the few chances created, and immediately after the break Parker took a pass from McFarlane, unbeatable in defence, and found Janney, who in turn found Tomlinson whose hard shot brought a massive hand ball appeal, and play continued. A Tomlinson free kick was played short to Janney, but Glidden cleared the resulting centre, only for the ball to run to Lee whose lobbed shot was headed away by Kirby. Harlow came back briefly, a Lalite corner being punched away by Brightly, and Fiddes hooked the ball upfield and Parker raced away to earn a corner, which Tomlinson played short to Janney, with Taylor heading away the centre. Brightly then fielded a Lalite corner once again, but Harlow began to struggle somewhat, no doubt unused to playing under floodlights.

A Warren free kick was headed clear by Purdie, and at the other end it was Parker who played Tomlinson through for the best chance of the second half, Andy’s hooked shot skimming across goal and out of play. Brightly fielded a Winston long range shot, and Lee then sent Parker clear, with Hasell racing out of goal to just win the race for the ball. Harlow had one final surge, with Brightly easily handling a Lalite corner, and a late flurry of substitutes saw Foyewa, Sadler and Bostock come on to alter the pattern of play. The only opportunity came when a long ball saw Amos race away, with Hollenbach doing well to cover.

A point gained, another clean sheet, and overall an ultra defensive match which neither team wanted to lose.
