Should definitely be on. Very cloudy but the wind has dropped. May have another shower on the way but pitch has been in excellent condition recently.

Official website doesn't say it's off.

It's been absolutely peeing it down and the clouds are still very dark and I expect it to continue with heavy showers on and off.

The pitch is in good condition and it will probably be very slippery and heavy - but I wouldn't have thought the game has been called off yet.

You could try the clubs main number which I've got from the website - 01268 682991

Just got home from the game and I am feeling really good about our new Canvey stars. Hasn’t it been great to watch this young team of inexperienced players grow together and finally come good. Only a few weeks ago there were lots of moans (mostly from me) about not learning from our mistakes, of being pushed off the ball far too easily and a general lack of cohesion. This week we fans are ecstatic, and with good reason. Everyone is much stronger and puts up a real fight for the ball; the defence is unrecognisable since Dobbo moved into the back four and Leon Gordon is a veritable powerhouse through the middle (thought he was a bit wasted out wide today). Things are looking really rosy and although we still have a long way to go, with lots of consolidation work to be done, I think the Canvey phoenix is gradually rising from the ashes.

The passing game which was so expertly played by the old Canvey team, is once again alive and well and living at Park Lane. There were some beautiful moves today and had we had the run of the ball it might well have been six instead of three. The commitment is obvious, the enthusiasm is there in bucketfuls and optimism abounds everywhere.

Well done lads. You were well worth your three points and your three goals and if you continue to play like this we will win a lot more friends (although 393 wasn’t bad today, even if 80 of them were ‘enemy’)

Just thought I'd say I was really impressed with Dobbo today. He hadn't done much until today that made him standout, in my opinion, but today he was excellent; every ball that came towards him was stopped and cleared. He was an absolute rock in the centre. If it wasn't for Curran scoring two goals and playing very well himself, I would have given Dobbo MOTM.

Great result, great performance. I hope for more of the same at Harlow next week, though that's going to be especially tough.

Great performance today. We were excellent in the first half and took our goals well. Played some great football as well with Lee Jay and Leon a constant menace on the wings.

Thought Jay and Nicky linked up superbly. Couldn't see Nicky's goal properly as the sun was in my eyes but was there an element of luck about it?

Jay's second was superb. I screamed at him not to shoot just before he pulled the trigger. What do I know about football!!!!

Dave Kreyling and Dobbo both had superb games. Had a bit of a dodgy spell around the time of their goal but unlike Redbridge we looked the more likely to get the next goal and weathered the storm well.

393 was a bit of a dissapointing crowd but I expect the awful weather played a major role in the crowd being low.

Bring on Harlow.

It was a bit like the old days yesterday, good attacking football <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> good atmosphere <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> and crap weather <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Both teams gave their all and it seemed more like a cup tie than a league game. With the players we have we will always have chances to score but the difference yesterday was we put our first 2 chances in the back of the net which really rocked Enfield Town.

I thought we looked solid in all positions but Dobbo & Kreying were really impressive and i think this along with the Roberts/Edgar partnership in midfield has been the key to our recent good form.

Leon showed what a team player he is by putting in another quality performance even when switched out wide again and with our goals coming from Rugg & Curran who can fault the managements team selection <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/applaus.gif" alt="" />

I know the weather was poor but i was a bit dissapointed by the attendance by both home and away (don`t think there was 80, i would say 50 max) fans, those who didn`t attend missed a good game.

i was on the understanding that enfield were bringing 150 to your place,this obviously wasn't correct,hopefully it should be a bumper gate boxing day for you guys as i can't see too many of our lot missing out on a potential top of the table class with the two ryman 1 north giants!!!
And should be a massive crowd easter at our place should we both be up there still(but no trying to take our eastside like last time!!!!)

Reading the posts on "other" forums I think posession was pretty even - what really stood out to me yesterday was the amount of chances and half chances we created. We definitely created more and it's been a while since I've attended a game where I can't remember them all. Shots tipped over the bar and Kreylings far post header being put just wide of the post to name a couple that I do recall. Credit to all the lads for working so hard.

Great all round performance yesterday in difficult conditions. I think the weather did put a few of the fair weather supporters off. I counted about 60 - 70 Enfield Town supporters in the second half which means that there was a few Canvey fans that didn't turn up when you look at our average Saturday afternoon attendance.

Not sure if the conditions contributed but looked to be our most physical game of the season. Ruggs goal looked to have that element of "luck". He stretched well and got his boot to it which put it wide of the keeper - previously that would have gone anywhere but goal bound. Currans second was "Boylan" class, a little bit of curl on it which put it past the outstretched keeper. Very similar to Crace's goal previously at the other end, which credit where it's due was superbly struck and again curled just inside the post leaving Ricky standing.

Upto 4th after 8 games with out defeat and another test next Saturday away at Harlow - bring it on!

harlow beat us the other week but if you take your chances they are beatable,we outplayed them for most of the game but they took two of the three chances they had away(although one of them was a mistake in the last minute while we were pushing up) and we missed about 15 chances!!
a draw would do us fine,but i wouldn't be too upset if you went up there and nicked all three points!!!

Sounded like a great result given the conditions. Good to hear that the defence is mostly patched up now with all the old heads at the back.

Seems to be a bit of confusion between how many fans Enfield Town brought with them, we suggest as low as 50, they suggest as high as 125.

Very pleased that Jay Curran is finding the back of the net and we have (at least) three Strikers who can now score goals given their chances. The question is which two do you play up front and can Leon always be played out wide, when he must be our top scorer?

I think our results against Harlow, Enfield and Hornchurch will truly reflect how our season will progress going into the new year and if we can maintain a good points ratio against those teams now in the bottom half of the table, I believe we will exceed our expected Top 10 finish.

Long way to go, but keep up like this and it'll all be rosey... well, yellow then.

There were about 80 fans standing at the sea-wall end during the 2nd half. Admittedly not all of them would have been Enfield fans. There were 2 Canvey stewards.

with your results of late i would of thought you would finish in the top 5-6.In all honesty i haven't seen too much quality in this league so far.Aveley were a hard side to beat and redbridge battle well but some of the others have far from impressed me.I didn't rate harlow but they did have injuries and put the 2 chances they had against us away!
