A very warm afternoon, on a bumpy pitch saw Enfield return to winning ways.
Flackwell Heath was first to strike after 5mins, from a corner Rose shot wide of Robinson’s goal. After 8 mins a Dean Thomas header into the box went straight
passed Neil Hughes and Heath cleared the danger. A free kick from Rose into the
box was easily cleared by Nick Turner, after 10mins. The ref went down with an ankle injury on 13mins, but after treatment from Es’ physio Ben Conway he managed to continue until half time. A long ball from Es’ Spinks up field was flicked on by Thomas to Hughes who shot went wide of the goal after 16 mins. From the goal kick Fisher ran towards the Es’ goal, but his resulting cross went wide of the goal. After 18 mins a good attack by Heath ended with Fisher shooting over the cross bar. Oliver Stroud was then penalised for a unfair challenge, from the free kick Ramsey heads wide of goal. After Heaths corner on 24mins had been collected by Robinson, Hughes tried to get on the end of his long kick, but he was adjudged to have fouled the defender, he protested his innocence to no avail. On 32mins Heath had a free kick, Myron Ramsey put it just over the bar.
The deadlock was broken after 39mins, from Whittingtons throw into Bound he sent in a cross to Neil Hughes who made no mistake heading in to put Enfield 1 up.
With half time approaching the Es’ stepped up a gear and after a good combination of passes between Spinks, Hughes & Bound, Es’ got a corner. Owen Beale sent the ball into the box, it came back out to him, he sent it back and Nick Turner knocked it back to Beale who sent his rasping shot passed the bewildered keeper. Heath 0 – 2 Enfield.
Linesman took over from ref, who ran the line instead. Enfield started the half well and Bound, Thomas, Hughes combination, resulted in Hughes shooting wide. An Owen Beale corner on 51mins caused danger in Heaths box, but they eventually cleared it. 54mins a Dean Thomas back flick was saved by keeper. Thomas shot straight at Cooper , after 57mins, but was adjudged to be offside. Rose shot wide of Robinson’s goal on 58mins. Rose then pushed Beale in the back, Hughes sent Beales free kick wide of goal. Spinks was penalised for a handball on the edge of the area on 70mins. Rose struck the free kick through the Es’ wall, passed Robinson into the net. Heath 1 – 2 Enfield. Hazel on for Judge 73mins. Heath sub Ramsey off Payne on. Dean Thomas went down in the box after 77mins, Rolfe was pulling his shirt. Ref books Thomas for diving, terrible decision by the stand in ref. After 83mins Enfield sealed victory. A Robinson punt up field to Thomas was flicked to Hughes, he then passed back to Thomas, and he knocked it forward for Hughes to shoot pass Anthony Cooper into the net. 1 – 3. Stroud off Andrew Giles on 44mins. Heath Fisher off Warren on.
