The statement below was taken from the Official Ryman League web site.


It is with regret the League announce that Enfield FC have been suspended from the League and are unable to take part in the business of the League. The reason for this is the Club were given until 5pm on Monday 11 August to deal with three outstanding matters, namely the payment of monies due to the League, the submission of the membership application form to the League and the resolution of a dispute with Boreham Wood FC with whom they had a ground share agreement. The Club made a payment to the League bank account on Monday but this payment has still not cleared. The membership form has been received now but the dispute with Boreham Wood FC has not been resolved. Assuming the payment received does clear on Monday 18 August the matter which remains outstanding is as to where Enfield FC will play their home games this season. The Club had a ground share agreement with Boreham Wood FC approved by the Board of the League at its meeting in March 2003 as required by League Rules but failed to make a payment due under the agreement and have still not made that payment; as a result of this Boreham Wood have served notice purporting to terminate the agreement and at the present time Enfield FC do not have a ground on which to play their matches. The Club has been advised to resolve its dispute with Boreham Wood FC and until this happens the suspension is unlikely to be withdrawn. The first match of the season away to Barking & East Ham United and the first home game against Uxbridge have been postponed and on Monday 18 August, if the matter has still not been resolved the matches due to be played on 23 August and 25 August will also be postponed.

First few paragraphs of a big article in the Non-League Paper, Sunday August 17th, Edition.

"Enfield, one of Non-league football's most famous clubs, are just 48 hours away from going out of business.

If they fail to complete the purchase of a new ground by Tuesday, the homeless Ryman First Division Club could fold with their controversial chairman, Tony Lazarou, facing a £17,500 fine from the Football Association after admitting 'Financial irregularities'.

The crisis came to a head when Ryman League officials suspended Enfield and postponed their first two games of the new season after a £1000 cheque to the league bounced and Boreham Wood, with whom Enfield ground-shared, booted them out, alleging they are owed £6000 in rent.

That came just days after an FA inquiry fined Lazarou - and gave him an October deadline to pay back up to £250,000 they say he "borrowed" from Enfield after he sold the Club's Southbury Road ground for £3.6 million four years ago."

The article gos on for much longer then this........to long to re-produce here.

How can Enfield go out of Business, They still have everything in place except a ground, all they need to do at worst is drop out of the Ryman League.

The club still keeps goin at a lower level and has £250.000 in the bank.
