HERTINGFORDBURY PARK IS A LOVELY PLACE TO WATCH FOOTBALL
Harlow Town had started the season well winning eight of their first eleven league games compared to just one in twelve going in Saturday afternoon's local derby - They had parted company with long serving boss Danny Chapman who has been replaced by former AFC Hornchurch boss Mark Holloway until the end of the season - Holloway had been assisting Chapman prior to his appointment and has brought in Dave Collis to assist him.
THE HAWKS TRAVELLING SUPPORT
Going into the game Harlow Town were in eleventh position and Hertford Town were in sixteenth.
The Hawks gave starting debuts to Reiss Chandler and Chris Bourne with more new signings in Ross Elsom and Freddie Moncur on the bench.
Bourne joins from Grays Athletic, Chandler on a work experience loan from League One side Southend United, Elsom from Witham Town and Moncur from Romford where he had a very short spell prior to which he was with Premier Division side Cheshunt.
The Hawks had also announced that Leyton Orient loanee Jeremie Sivi would be staying with the club for a further month - He was the stand out player for me on the day. He was full of energy and running between midfield and attack having a say in both goals scored for The Hawks. He is wearing the number 7 shirt in the video.
For Hertford Town David Ogbonna (11) had some good touches and forward runs on the left wing with James Jewers (formerly of West Essex, Guildford City, Holmesdale) looking decent in midfield.
A crowd of 274 included a healthy and noisy travelling contingent who had made the short trip from Essex.
Goals from Tayo Oyebola (11th league goal of the season) and Christian Gyamfi (5th) won it for The Hawks which sent their travelling fans home very happy indeed.
Harlow Town host second placed Ware tonight in a very important game for the visitors. I'm sure The Hawks would like to win that one and put a dent in their rival's title challenge. Hertford Town travel to Chalfont St Peter who are currently in 14th place.
