Bury Town fail to boost AFC Sudbury’s Ryman North title bid
Bury Town could not do their Suffolk neighbours AFC Sudbury a favour, during last night’s home match against third-placed Harlow Town.
However, second-placed Thurrock’s 1-0 home defeat to Cray Wanderers has left Sudbury on the brink of winning the title.
Thurrock can no longer catch Jamie Godbold’s men, while Harlow must win all three of their remaining games, and Sudbury lose all three of theirs, to finish on the same number of points, when goal difference would then be the determining factor.
So Sudbury need just one more point to wrap up automatic promotion to the Ryman Premier.
Bury, without a win in their previous 11 games, never looked like ending that terrible run against Harlow.
The Essex visitors raced into a 3-0 lead after just 36 minutes, to effectively kill off the game.
Layne Eadie broke the deadlock after just four minutes, before Leon Antoine doubled the lead in the 14th minute.

And Jared Small made it 3-0 in the 36th minute to ensure that there was no way back for Ben Chenery’s side, in front of a Ram Meadow crowd of 226.
