Dockers Go Marching On
By Anthony Mercer

Tilbury 3 Harlow Town 1 (Att 95)
Tilbury's excellent run extended to 15 matches with a well deserved win over Harlow Town on a cold afternoon at Chadfields.
Tilbury went into the game making just one change, Babalola replacing Elsom. Harlow started brightly with Jake Pooley clearing off the line on 6 minutes after Junior Dadson headed past Clarke Bogard. 2 minutes later Bogard was back into action again when Alex Read was played in and he saved a point blank range. Midway through the half Matt Game and Jack Carlile both had efforts in the space of 3 minutes.
Both sides had chances to take the lead, but it was the Dockers who did so, just past the half hour when Kurt Smith was pulled down in the box and Danny Glozier scored from the spot. Just before the break Tilbury thought they had gone further in front when Neil Richmond had the ball in the net, but it was ruled out for offside.
Harlow again started the second half well and pressured the Tilbury defence. On 61 minutes, though, a good move lead to Fabion Simms who from 18 yards almost cleared the ground with his shot high and wide. On 64 Harlow did get themselves back in the game when Clarke Bogard saved a low shot, but the ball fell to former Docker Alex Read who slotted home. Immediately from the restart, Tilbury went back in front, when from 20 yards, Matt Game unleashed a right footed effort that flew in to the net, with Freund unmoved. Harlow never gave up and Mario Noto headed towards goal on 69, but Jack Carlile was on hand to clear off the line. This seemed to knock the life out of the visitors as Tilbury took command and gave the home defence some breathing space. In the final minute with Harlow trying to push forward, Emiel Aiken picked on the ball just inside the Harlow half and played a ball through that split the Harlow defence open and Kurt Smith was on hand to slot home to give Tilbury a deserved victory.
After the game Manager Gary Henty commented “A pleasing result and a deserved victory. There were some very performances from the lads"
The result leaves Tilbury in 6th place, going into a break of 2 weeks before the next league fixture. The Dockers attention now turns to next Saturday, when they welcome National League South side Bishop Stortford for a place on the first round proper.

Team: Bogard, C Mead, Glozier, D Smith, Pooley, Game Aiken, Carlile, Richmond (H Cook 73), Babalola, K Smith (Martin 89)

Unused Subs: Nightingill, Austin and Elsom
