THE CAPTAIN:

PAUL KING Firstly we would like to welcome the management team, players, committee and supporters of Harlow Town to Witham. We hope you’ve had a good trip and a safe journey home later on too. So, these are my last notes of what seems like a very long season. I would firstly like to thank all of the officials at the club for their continued support - the club has really progressed on and off the field, and that’s a credit to everyone connected with the club. Whatever happens today, everyone can feel very proud of this season. Secondly, on behalf of the boys, I’d like to thank for the sponsors for your support and with a special mention to Village Glass for their continued support - I hope they continue next season and beyond, as we need all the help that we can get. This season we have, by far, surpassed all expectations and I’m proud to play alongside these boys, guided by Garry, my brother, John and Curtis. We have a great togetherness amongst the players and management and that, with the quality we have, has led to us taking the title race to the last game of the season. We were at our lowest points last Saturday as it meant so much to us all - it would have been an incredible achievement having clawed so many points back from VCD Athletic, but it wasn’t to be this time. People started to give us no chance in Tuesday night’s semi-final, but we knew what we had to do and I know how mentally strong the boys are. We were superb and in control for most of the game, winning it with a late strike to take us into today’s final. Personally, I have finished my suspension and so, if selected,

I’ll be giving it my all to lead the boys to promotion. This is my third successive play-off campaign now, so I’m hoping for third time lucky! Whoever is chosen, we know the boys will give it their all. We believe we can do it, as we’ve shown we like to do things the hard way throughout the entire campaign. We all went for an Indian on Thursday and I can assure all of the supporters that we’re focused on today’s task. And, lastly, I’d like to thank you all for your continued support. You’ve grown in numbers recently and I ask you to be loud again today - it makes a real difference. A special mention to our kitman, Johnny Sharp. It’s a thankless task, but the boys appreciate it and he makes a great team with our physio, Kevin. Let’s also hope we have match officials like Tuesday night as, although people are quick to criticise them, they deserve praise as they were top draw. Enjoy the game and let’s have a go,

Kingy

“If selected today, I’ll be giving it my all to lead the boys to promotion - we believe we can do it & we’ve shown throughout that we like to do it the hard way” WITHAM TOWN vs HARLOW TOWN

IN OPPOSITION:

HARLOW A BRIEF HISTORY: Harlow’s date of formation is unknown, but the first match was played on 18 October 1879 against Saffron Walden. In 1896 the club joined Division One of the East Herts League, but left at the end of the 1896–97 season. In 1898 the club merged with Netteswell and Burnt Mill and were renamed Harlow and Burnt Mill F.C. and rejoined the East Herts League. The merger was reversed in 1902. After World War I the club joined both the East Herts League and the Stansted & District League. They won Division One of the East Herts League in 1922–23 and the Stansted & District League in both of the following two seasons. In 1927–28 the club won its third Stansted & District League title, and the following season won both the Stansted & District League and Division One of the East Herts League. After withdrawing from the Stansted & District League, they won Division One of the East Herts League and the League Challenge Cup in 1929–30, retaining the League Cup for the following two seasons. In 1932 the club joined Division Two East of the Spartan League. In 1954 the club joined the Premier Division of the London League. In 1960 they won the League Cup, and moved to the Sportscentre from the Green Man playing fields, where they had played since 1879. In 1961 they switched to the Delphian League. In 1963 it merged into the Athenian League and the club were placed in Division Two. After finishing third in 1963–64 they were promoted to Division One. In July 1966 Harlow Town arranged a friendly match against Uruguay, who were staying nearby in preparation for the World Cup (held in England that summer). Uruguay defeated Harlow, 6–1. In 1968, Benfica reached the European Cup final against Manchester United at Wembley. Benfica prepared for the final at Harlow’s Sportcentre; their team included the top scorer from the 1966 World Cup, Eusébio. In 1971–72 the club won Division One, and were promoted to the Premier Division of the Athenian League. In 1973 the club switched to

Division Two of the Isthmian League, renamed Division One in 1977. In 1978–79 they won Division One and were promoted to the Premier Division. The 1979–80 season saw the club make its best-ever run in the FA Cup. They reached the first round proper for the first time, where they defeated Leytonstone/Ilford 2–1. In the next round they drew 1–1 at Southend United before winning the replay at the Sportscentre 1–0 in front of 5,000 spectators. The club were then drawn away at Second Division leaders Leicester City. After a 1–1 draw at Filbert Street with Harlow scoring a last minute equaliser, Harlow won the replay at the Sportscentre 1–0, with a record attendance of 9,723 set by the game. In the fourth round the club were drawn away to Watford, but lost 4–3. In 1981–82 the club were relegated, but returned to the Premier Division after a single season in Division One. However, two consecutive relegations in 1984–85 and 1985–86 saw the club drop into Division Two North. In 1988–89 they won the division and returned to Division One. The club’s plans to leave the Sportcentre for a new stadium on Roydon Road collapsed during the 1991–92 season, and the Isthmian League closed down the Sportcentre after it no longer met league requirements. The team played the rest of their home games at local venues before dropping out of football for the 1992–93 season. When they were voted back into the league for the 1993–94 season after upgrading the Sportscentre, the club were forced to drop into Division Three. In 1997–98 they were promoted to Division Two, and the following season were promoted to Division One. In 2004 the club were transferred to Division One East of the Southern League, but returned to the Isthmian League in 2006. In October 2006 the club moved to its new ground at Barrow’s Farm. After finishing as runners-up in Division One North in 2006–07 they won the promotion play-offs and were promoted to the Premier Division after defeating AFC Sudbury in the play-off final. However, they were relegated back to Division One North at the end of the 2008–09 season. WITHAM TOWN vs HARLOW TOWN

THE RYMAN

REVIEW HOW WE MADE IT HERE Today’s Ryman League Division One North play-off final will be between two Essex teams after semi-final victories for Harlow Town and Witham Town on Tuesday night. The all-Essex semi-final at Scraley Road saw Heybridge Swifts, who finished just two points in front of Harlow in the regular season, go out 3-0 to a Hawks outfit who ended the campaign with a fourteen-match unbeaten run. However, Swifts came into the game having netted eleven goals in their last two league matches – but couldn`t find one when it really mattered. Alex Read gave the Hawks a 24th minute lead in front of a crowd of 423. Leon Antoine doubled the visitors` advantage nine minutes later and the same player killed off any hopes of a Swifts` comeback when he made it 3-0 just seven minutes into the second half. Harlow will travel to Spa Road to take on Witham Town in the final after Garry Kimble`s side edged out Needham Market 1-0. The visitors had misfortune to hit the bar as early as the fourth minute through Luke Ingram and an evenly contested first half ended goalless. Witham `keeper Martyn Guest made a great double save soon after the break and as the game went from end-to-end Andrew plummer saved well from Kris Newby at the other end. But the all-important goal came in the 88th minute when Newby`s effort crept low just inside the post unseen by Plummer.

GREEN FAN’S SUCCESS Harrow Borough fan Mick Martin has been lauded for his loyalty and green credentials by his fellow supporters at the Ryman Premier club.

At the start of the season the supporter set himself the challenge of seeing every match whilst leaving his car at home to follow Dave Anderson’s side by public transport.

“The Ryman Football League strongly support the recent FA statement that there should be a zero tolerance approach against racism and all forms of discrimination. Accordingly any form of discriminatory abuse whether it be based on race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, faith, age, ability or any other form of abuse will be reported to The Football Association for action by that Association.” WITHAM TOWN vs HARLOW TOWN

Non-league football has this wonderful habit of bringing clubs together for good causes. One such example that struck me recently was the unification of Hemel Hempstead and Chesham United – local rivals and the two teams contesting the Calor Premier title until the former secured silverware last Saturday, 48 hours before a potential championship showdown between them. The Tudors and the Generals will unite on Saturday, May 10 for a charity game to raise funds for the University College London Hospital’s Neo-natal Unit and The Butterfly Fund. It is the brainchild of Chesham leftback Daniel Brathwaite, who together with wife Ali suffered the heartache of losing their son Maxwell William on May 16 last year just nine hours after he was born three months premature. Hemel born and bred, Brathwaite has taken up the offer from his old club, where he played a decade ago, to stage the game where a Daniel Brathwaite XI will take on a Chesham United & Hemel Hemsptead Town Combined XI. “My dad has known the chairman, Dave Boggins, for years so when I’ve bumped into him and a couple of the directors around town recently, they said we should hold the game there,” said Braithwaite. “I thought it would be great idea to

use players from both clubs, and the fact that so many have agreed to play shows the mutual respect there is between us.” So with a Southern Prem dream team in action against a host of top names from the higher echelons of English football and the Non-League game, where better to head that afternoon if you’re not going to Wembley for the FA Vase final or one of the regional play-off finals? Jordan Parkes, David Hutton, Dan Talbot, Lewis Toomey, Danny May and Kieran Murphy are the champion Tudors set to be on show, with Shane Gore, Alex Brown, James Potton, Dave Fotheringham, Scott Thomas, Bruce Wilson and prolific strike duo Chris Dillon and Drew Roberts from runners-up Chesham.

Among the DB XI are Luton’s titlewinning captain Ronnie Henry, Boreham Wood’s Sam Cox, Welling’s Ross Lafayette, ex-Stevenage captain and current coach Jason Goodliffe and former top-flight players Nigel Winterburn, Paolo Vernazza, Micah Hyde, Steve Palmer and Luther Blissett. “The hospital staff and the neo-natal and bereavement services they provide are first class,” said Brathwaite. “Hopefully the money we raise will go towards saving some little people’s lives and help them help other families, like they did with us.” The family day at Vauxhall Road starts at midday. Admission is £5 adults with under-16s free. WITHAM TOWN vs HARLOW TOWN

4 WITHAM TOWN 1 WROXHAM

Report by George Vale

monday April 21st | 3.00 pm | Ryman League Division One North Witham dominated most of this game but did have a couple of scares when Wroxham looked certain to score but the Witham keeper Martyn Guest rose to the occasions making extraordinary saves.

Just after the break defender Conner Mead tried a shot but his good effort went just wide ,both Danny Emmanuel and Shamido Pedulu were making good runs down the wings but their great crosses were going astray and also forced many corners.

Witham started well and took the lead after just 8 minutes when Antony Anstead was left unmarked and shot past Robert Juhasz the visiting keeper.

It was from one of these that Witham went back in front. It was taken by Tom Wraight and it caused mayhem in the Wroxham penalty area and Kris Newby put Witham back in the lead with a fierce shot into the roof of the net. Just previous to that Guest had made one of his great saves from Remy Gordon.

Soon after he made good saves from Kris Newby and Tom Wraight, however against the run of play Drake broke through the static home defence and shot past guest after 19 minutes to level the score. Witham created chances galore and dominated the game and should have had a match winning lead by half time but there was many chances missed in the first half.

Witham went further ahead in the 81st minute from the penalty spot after a foul on Danny Emmanuel from which he had to leave the game injured - and Newby scored the resulting penalty. Tom Wraight who had had a good game, completed the scoring in the 87th minute when firing in a great pass from Newby.

1 CHESHUNT 1 WITHAM TOWN

Report by George Vale

saturday April 26th | 3.00 pm | Ryman League Division One North Witham needed to win to make sure of the championship but failed to do so VCD Athletic piped them to the post as they won 6-0 in their home game over Romford. Witham ended up second in the table, the highest ever finish by the club and now have to play in the play offs for the second season running and face Needham Market at home on Tuesday night at Spa Road. Witham started the match well as they attacked the home goal with Danny Emmanuel and Tom Wraight making strong runs down the wings but they were in vain as most were cleared by the home defence or weak efforts well saved by home keeper Will Viner. Pressure soon told and it was no surprise when Witham took the lead after 14 minutes when a long cross from Kris Newby was put in the net by Tom Wraight. Emmanuel then shot wide when well placed, and Newby fired just over the crossbar. However against the run of play the unfortunate Witham keeper 14

Martyn Guest slipped making goal kick with the ball fell to Allen Vossman who crossed to player manager Omar Riza for a gift goal. This inspired the home team and guest saved well from Josh Cooper but the score line remained the same until half time. After the break play went from end to end and a shot from Cheshunt hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced out, a let off for Witham as there were strong appeals as it had crossed the line, as the game progressed Witham began to create chances but it was no-one to put the ball ij the net. Vinner made a great save from Tom Wraight and again both Emmanuel and Stevens failed to finish off good attempts, Lee Townrow had a shot well saved by Vinner . The nearest Witham came to scoring was when in the 83rd minute Kris Newby broke through but his fierce shot hit the post ,but as the game was going from end to end cooper the lively home winger missed a sitter near the end with an open goal at his mercy.

1 WITHAM TOWN 0 NEEDHAM MARKET

Report by Simon Spurgeon of the Braintree & Witham Times

Tuesday April 29th | 7.45 pm | Ryman League Division One North PLAY-OFF SEMI-FINAL

Kris Newby’s late strike proved the difference as Witham Town continued their habit of winning games late on in their Ryman League division one north playoff semi-final. The home fans had to wait until the 87th minute but it finally came as Newby drilled the ball home in a 1-0 win against Needham Market. After the disappointment of missing out on the league title at the weekend, Witham knew they needed a good start to settle any early nerves. However, they took time to settle and it was the visitors who made the early running instead with some incisive forward play. Town’s defence weathered the storm, though, with Luke Olley in particularly dominant form and they slowly came into the game. The spark they needed was provided by the running of Danny Emmanuel and the emphasis of the play switched to the Needham goal. A series of corners kept the pressure on and Tom Wraight stung keeper Andrew Plummer’s hands with a shot from 25 yards, while Plummer scrambled the ball away after an effort by Emmanuel. There was little in the way of clear-cut chances though and Needham remained a threat on the break. They went agonisingly close to opening the scoring on 31 minutes when Sam Newson spotted home keeper Martyn Guest off his line and tried an audacious chip from 30 yards but it went just over the bar. The play kept switching from one end to another and it was then Witham who had an opportunity to break the

deadlock but Plummer was off his line well to make the block when Joe Sweeney got clear. It meant things stayed goalless at half-time but Witham came out strongly after the break and within three minutes of the restart, Paul White had forced Plummer into a great save with a thunderous long-range shot. The end-to-end nature of the contest continued though and Guest was then called on to make an impressive double stop, firstly from Kem Izzet’s free-kick and then a header on the rebound by Michael Brothers. The longer the game went on with neither able to break the deadlock, the scrappier it became as nerves began to show. Both sides made changes to their attacks, but Witham’s was the most fruitful as Shamido Pedulu came on and his pace caused problems for the visitors’ tiring defence. And that pressure finally told as in the 87th minute, the ball came to Kris Newby and he drilled a low shot past Plummer from an angle. It sparked wild celebrations in the home ranks and proved to be the last real action as the hosts safely saw out four added minutes to win the game.

THE GAFFER: “The lads showed me that they could bounce back from Saturday’s disappointment. I thought Danny Emmanuel’s energy to drive at them was excellent and our subs brought pace on at the end. “We deserved the win. They only looked like scoring from silly mistakes, and I can’t fault anyone on this game as they all put in a shift for me.” WITHAM TOWN vs HARLOW TOWN

THE BACKUP:

IN RESERVE 2 WITHAM TOWN 0 STANWAY ROVERS At the start of the season, this would have proven to be a cracking local derby but, in this instance, there wasn’t too much to write home about. The contest was a very low-key, scrappy affair and, in the end, Town ran out as untroubled 2-0 victors - with both teams having lost a number of players throughout the course of the campaign, neither side were on top form. It does mean that the season has ended with a win for Town, albeit a year that had begun with so much promise before slipping away somewhat after the wet weather break. Goals from Jack Charnock and Joe Dear secured all three points and a third-place finish in the league. Premier Division 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
