Town’s final game of the season comes this weekend when they play out a dead rubber against Brightlingsea on Saturday. With very little at stake for either side it is a chance for an open game to take place, but supporters will have to wait and see if that is what happens. Brightlingsea pushed Stortford all the way last weekend, with late goal giving them some hope of pulling off an upset. But it wasn’t to be and Stortford retained their tenuous grip on the final play off place with the much needed three points. Brightlingsea remain in 14th spot though, comfortably in mid table.
Town’s win against Potters Bar was a case of too little too late with the other results going against them, and they are now out of contention for the play offs for this season. It could be a stormy finish to the season though as high winds are forecast in the Essex town and this could prove to be a game played in difficult conditions. It’s an opportunity for Town to go out with a bang on the final day of the season and get a disappointing season out of their system.
