Harlow Town

One of the home counties oldest clubs, Harlow Town who were formed in 1879,  worked their way through most of the South Eastern leagues starting with East Hertfordshire League. They felt ready to join the well respected Spartan League in 1932, staying with them for periods before and after the war, but then sampled life in the Delphian League (1961-1963), Athenian League (1963-1973) before becoming a consistent member of the Isthmian League from 1973.

Manager Ian Wolstenholme took the club up to The Isthmian Premier Division in 1979 but six years later, having enjoyed five of them at senior level, the club suffered a period of poor form on and off the field, sinking down to Division Two North at one stage and the club actually took a year off in 1992-1993 to re-vitalize the club.

A series of very experienced managers have looked after the club since ‘The Hawks’ bounced back into the competitive pyramid. Then after twenty consistent years, the club have arrived back in the Isthmian Division One via a couple of seasons in the Premier Division and two in Southern League which didn’t turn out to be a geographical improvement.

Having been lucky to retain their Isthmian membership in 2010, the club enjoyed two promising campaigns under Manager Kevin Warren but consistency must be achieved if the club is to return to Premier levels.
