Thamesmead Town thrashed Harlow Town 4-0 away from home despite resting a host of first team players in the final regular league game of the season on Saturday.

A hat-trick from Richard Stevens did the damage, two in the first-half and one just after the break.

Harlow goalkeeper punched the ball into his own net to complete the scoring after a corner from Thamesmead’s Jay Porter with two minutes remaining.

The home side finished the game with 10 men, Kevin Toonga being given a red card in the last 10 minutes.

The resounding win was not enough to clinch second place in the Ryman North as Maldon and Tiptree had already secured the position.

Mead finished the season with 88 points, having scored 85 goals in the 42 game season.

They face Witham Town at Bayliss Avenue tomorrow for a place in the play-off final. The winner of Maldon and Tiptree and Aveley awaits.
