HARWICH and Parkeston hero Callum Griffith believes "anything is possible" as his promotion-chasing side prepare for an exciting finale to the Thurlow Nunn League season.

The Shrimpers are fourth in first division south and maintained their promotion push with a dramatic 3-2 victory at Brightlingsea Regent Reserves on Friday night.

Griffith scored their stoppage-time winner - an unstoppable volley from the edge of the box - and it was a result that kept the pressure on leading trio Hashtag United, Halstead Town and White Ensign.

“Anything’s possible," said the striker, when asked about his side's chances of securing a top-two promotion spot.

“There are several teams up there but we’ll keep going and fighting until the end, for our managers, chairman and supporters.

“There’s no pressure on us.

"We’re underdogs in this league but the changing room was absolutely buzzing after Friday’s result.

“The belief is certainly there.

“Sometimes it takes us a while to get going but when we get into gear we know we’re a match for anyone.

“We’ve got a few hard games coming up but it was nice to give our fans something to celebrate because they’re always there supporting us, home and away."

After Saturday's results, Harwich stayed fourth, a point behind White Ensign and three behind Halstead.

All three have played 29 games.

Leaders Hashtag are seven points better off but have played one game more.

Coggeshall United and Hackney Wick are seven points behind but both have three games in hand.

Meanwhile, Griffith, 19, spoke of his satisfaction at scoring such a sweetly-struck winner in Friday's Tendring derby at Brightlingsea.

Harwich led twice, following an own goal and a tap-in from Jordan Heath, but were pegged back by goals from Charlie Gilbert and Charlie Lindoe.

“The connection was perfect and I couldn’t have wished for anything better, coming in the last few seconds like that," said the former Stanway Rovers man.

“I didn’t even feel the ball leave my foot, it was that sweet.

“It was a great feeling but the most important thing was the fact we won the game, to put another three points on the board.

“In the past few games we’ve been a bit off the mark, losing a few points that we shouldn’t have done.

“I’ve scored a few goals that I’m proud of but this one was certainly up there.

“Brightlingsea have got a good young side and we knew it was going to be a challenge.

“They’re much better than their league position suggests."

Harwich are away to more Tendring opposition when they visit Holland FC on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
