Report for today's game:<BR>=====<P>Saturday, 22nd September 2001 - Ryman League Premier Division <BR>Enfield 0 (0) <BR>Maidenhead United 2 (1) o.g. 40, Rake 83 <BR> <BR>Attendance: 114 <BR>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR> <BR>Enfield <BR>1 Whittamore , 2 Hoy s2, 3 Soteriou, 4 Wilkie, 5 Peddie, 6 Lewis, 7 Rufus, 8 Allen, <BR>9 Nartey s1, 10 Georgiou, 11 Magona, 12 Gant (un), 14 Abiodun s2, 15 Minors s1 <P>Hampton <BR>1 Barnard, 2 Rose s2, 3 Connor, 4 Kelly, 5 Croxford s3, 6 Ferdinand, 7 Cook, 8 Scott s1,<BR>9 Channell, 10 Rake, 11 Ulasi, 12 Craker s3, 14 Jarvis s1, 15 Morley s2<P>Same venue, same outcome, better weather! Not for the first time this campaign, Enfield came away from a game pointless when, in truth, their play deserved more. <P>The early stages were cagey as both sides toyed with each other before suddenly springing into life. <P>On 11 minutes, Lee Allen laid off a measured pass to George Georgiou who, despite the close attention of a couple of defenders, got in a shot which squirmed just wide of the far post. This was quickly followed by Maidenhead's Lee Channell who had a couple of chances when his pace took him beyond the Enfield defence but on each occasion the Enfield goalkeeper Mark Whittamore pulled off comfortable saves to overt the danger. <P>Midway through the half, Allen demonstrated his free-kick capabilities. First, with pin point accuracy he found the head of Glen Wilkie who put just wide and then, less than a minute later from an identical position, he hit the cross bar. Within minutes it was Maidenhead's Chris Ferdinand who had the opportunity to demonstrate his free kick skills when he cleared the Enfield wall only for Whittamore to pull off a tremendous save. <P>Further Enfield chances followed for Joe Nartey, Gary Hoy, Vas Soteriou and Allen all coming close but, with half-time approaching Maidenhead went ahead when, against the run of play. Barry Rake broke down the right and let fly a rasping shot which headed for the far corner. In an attempt to clear, Wilkie lunged but only succeeded in deflecting the ball past a stranded Whittamore into the opposite corner. <P>HT Enfield 0 - 1 Maidenhead United <P>Enfield started the second half with a succession of corners as they pressed forward looking for a deserved equaliser. Allen's persistence nearly paid off when, after a great run, he was finally denied by Richard Barnard the Maidenhead goalkeeper. On 62 minutes debutant Dwayne Minors released Georgiou who beat a couple of defenders on route to goal. All was in vain, however, as a late decision adjudged him to be offside. Minutes later, Marvin Rufus had a header saved and Wilkie followed that up with a well taken free-kick which cleared the cross bar by a matter of inches. <P>With 15 minutes to go, Enfield went for broke as they sacrificed Hoy for Ayodeji Abiodun, recently signed from Dulwich Hamlet, to play three up front. Unfortunately, the move allowed Maidenhead to take a grip on the game and on 83 minutes they doubled their lead. Steve Magona lost possession and Andy Rose put over a pin point cross for Rake to half-volley into the far corner beyond the outstretched hand of Whittamore. Undeterred by the setback, The E's still continued to press forward but to no avail. <P>FT Enfield 0 - 2 Maidenhead United <P>==========<P>Will not appear on the main site until tomorrow when I've had a chance to update ALL the pages.
