Most of us were expecting to win the league, which we didn't. Congratulations, Leyton.<p>I don't remember Enfield Town's supporters saying we were going to walk it, although some may have got carried away in enthusiasm.<p>We couldn't organise a Ryman class ground in time, but we were only formed in June last year. Now we will try to win the league next season, and reach the Ryman one year later than originally planned.

After all it is Leyton that have the far bigger wage bill and can offer signing on fees etc to its players. Leyton have won the league and now go on to Ryman's Div 2 which bearing in mind the reorganisation of the league is only a side ways move.
ETFC will hopefully now go on and win the Essex league next year and leap frog Leyton into Div 1.
Then again maybe we won't but least we will enjoy ourselves in the process. <p>THM

I don't know where you've been Mr Syrup or who you've been talking to, but I don't know of any "boasting" that we were "going to walk the league". We were all pleasantly surprised at the good start we made - 8 straight wins I think - and began to think we COULD win it. Some began to be convinced that we would. But boasting? I think not. <p>We have got some excellent skilfull footballers, and yes we could have been more consistent. Some silly points were dropped, from our point of view. <p>When did Jim Chandler "promise" Ryman football? To the best of my knowledge he has never said anything of the sort, and he is far too sensible to make such a rash promise. One day, yes. Soon. yes. But a ground to play on would be handy!<p>Yes, we have had a good first season, do you not agree? The first training night last June was attended by 7 players. 9 months later, finished second, 1 cup, a final to come, and a semi-final reached, some brilliant football played, I'd call that a good first season. And what's been created off the pitch is a bit special too.<p>Anyway, my congratulations to Leyton on their championship, you won it fair and square in the end, notwithstandong our little disagreement - with one person only, not your players, coaching staff or supporters. Our own record would normally be good enough to win the league, so fair play to you.<p>I hope you get elected to the Ryman, and wish you good luck next year. We'll be playing you in league action again soon! Of course I won't wish you luck in the League Cup Final, but it should be a great game and a great day out.

Who are Leyton?<p>The REAL Leyton FC merged with Walthamstow Pennant. Did some travellers park their caravans at Lea Bridge Road and start kicking a ball around and hijack the name of Leyton FC?<p>Looking forward to Romford FC's meetings with Enfield Town in the ESL, if they will take us back. You're right ETFC Romford FC are not a bad lot, at least you won't have to come to Sungate, the dump to beat all dumps!<p>Well done ETFC on a great first season, hope we survive the current crisis.<p>Up The Boro'.

I don't know the background, but Leyton claim to be the oldest team in London. From what I remember of the programme notes, there have been a couple of legal wrangles over the name as well. It did state that they have reformed a few times as well, so althought the team might not be the oldest, it looks as though the name is.

And your point is Mr Alucard ?<p>As you can see from my note I use the word hopefully and the fact remains that the move to Ryman 2 is still a side ways move. We can still leapfrog Leyton.<p>THM
