Harleston Town must wait to learn Thurlow Nunn League First Division North title fate
It is a case of wait and see for Harleston Town as they picked up the six points they needed over Easter to keep their Thurlow Nunn League First Division North title hopes alive.
Town took their goal tally in the league to 123 from 36 matches with Saturday’s 5-1 win over visiting March Town United, followed by a campaign-ending 5-2 triumph at the expense of Cornard United on Easter Monday.
However, Swaffham Town were also victorious in their two fixtures and if they can finish the campaign by beating bottom-of-the-table Felixstowe & Walton United Reserves away from home tomorrow, they will pip Harleston to the title by a point.
For Harleston, goals from Jake Imrie, Sam Borrer, Lawrence Cheese, Owen Betts and Charlie Roe secured the win over March, while three of those players (Imrie, Borrer and Cheese) scored again in the success at Cornard.
Nicky Howell and the team’s leading marksman Nathan Stone were also on target as Harleston secured their 27th and final victory of the 2018/19 season.
Tonight, Harleston could win some silverware when they take on Holland FC in the Knockout Cup final at Woodbridge Town (7.45pm).
