Alex Read

Striker Also plays for: Former Players
Previous clubs: Tilbury, Brentwood Town, Aveley
Biography: 27 year old striker who signed for Harlow in July 2013 from Essex neighbours Aveley. Quick and tricky, he certainly knows where the back of the net is.

Alex joined the Hawks in July 2013 and has gone on to be one of the clubs most prolific strikers. In his first season he scored an incredible 52 league and cup goals, breaking a 25-year old club record for the number of goals in one season.

The next season produced 42 goals, followed by another 38 goals in the 2015-16 season as he helped propel the Hawks back to the Isthmian League Premier Division.

He became only the second Harlow Town player to surpass a century of goals, and in total Alex scored 178 goals in just 278 appearances in a Harlow shirt.

He is now second on the Harlow Town all-time scorers list behind Marc Salmon (198), and his exploits in front of goal have earned him legendary status among the Harlow Town supporters.

In the summer of 2018, after five years with Harlow Town, Alex signed for Tonbridge Angels.
