Harlow Town have finalised their pre-season friendly schedule, adding a fixture against neighbours Bishop’s Stortford to a list that already includes three sides in the top four English divisions.

The schedule will begin with the visit of recently promoted Leyton Orient on Saturday, July 6 in a repeat of last year’s friendly which drew a bumper crowd to the Harlow Arena.

Three days later the Hawks will travel to Cheshunt for a 7.45pm kick-off before hosting Stortford the following Saturday at 3.00pm.

A Southend United XI will then make the trip to Harlow on Saturday, July 20 before the side go to Haringey Borough a week later.

The Hawks will then entertain a West Ham United XI on Wednesday, July 31 before concluding their pre-season with trips to Brightlingsea Regent on Saturday, August 3 and Coggeshall Town on Saturday, August 10 (both 3.00pm kick-offs).
