There was a brilliant atmosphere at the pre-season friendly game played between Harlow Town and Enfield Town last night. Both sets of fans in the 157 crowd (decent figure for a PSF!) made lots of noise especially in the second half when both mixed together in The Jack Chapman Stand trading songs and banter.

Harlow Town's Eadie, Read and Smith will cause many of the Division One (North) teams trouble this season 
Harlow started the better of the teams and were 2-0 up inside twenty minutes via Alex 'The Machine' Read (see video below) and James Smith. The Hawk's front line of Read (in the centre), Layne Eadie (left) and George Smith (right) gave the Town back four a decent work out for the first half an hour or so as the home side were on top of things.

The visitors replied via Jamie Richards on 37 minutes. There could of been more goals as Harlow keeper Ed Thompson made a fantastic save prior to Richo scoring for Enfield and the home side's cross bar was rattled in the second half. Harlow also had a number of decent chances. Harlow lost the Division One (North) play-off final last season and it looks, although early days yet, with the team manager Danny Chapman has put together they will be right up the top end of the division for the 2014/15 campaign.

The game finished with some menacing looking clouds, lighting and thunder in the sky as the forecast storm moved across the Essex area which made for some good photographs to be taken. Alex Read's goal is below and the 'Harlow Town/Enfield Town' song in the second half!
