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.
