It's a journey back in time as Town head to Essex to face Premier Division newbies Bowers & Pitsea. New to this Division, but certainly old friends from our time in the Essex Senior League it will be interesting to see how things have changed at Crown Road both on and off the pitch. It's now more than 10 years since we last met in a competitive fixture with Town winning 4-0, but things are unlikely to be that easy this time round.
A frustrating end to Saturday's game saw Town drop points after doing the hard work to go in front after conceding an early goal. But the point is welcome and Town have shown they can come from behind if needed. Unfortunately they were unable to kick on for the win on this occasion but with the front line options coming together things are looking positive.
Town sit one point ahead of Bowers in the table with the Essex side having a decent start to the season. An opening day draw at Wingate has been followed by two wins and an FA Cup victory over Barkingside. East Thurrock spoiled the party on Bank Holiday Monday but Bowers will be content with the start they have made.
