Will we get to hear the result of the ETFC Membership Consultation? Supporters were asked to tick in order of preference the priorities the supporters wanted the club to concentrate on over the coming 12 months.

I'm sure most people confirmed their priority was to gain promotion to Ryman Premier but I wonder what other results the survey revealed.

Also, what was the outcome of Brimmo's consultation with their members regarding the proposed lease arrangements?

I think you'll be waiting until Kingdom come for answers to both of those questions.

Out of curio, has the membership been consulted about the overtures to merge with 1893? Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but this is the first time I've looked at the messageboard for some weeks.

No.An approach was made to the 1983 board by our Board.No word yet from them.I'm sure the membership will be consulted and a vote taken,if there is any progression from the initial offer.

I hear that the offer has been 'rejected', although I don't think there's been an official response yet.

How's this for a response?

We, EFC whatever, set up a new club so why amalgamate?

No, I think it was a shorter reply than that!

Go away?

If this is the case, then let's all forget about an amalgamation, merger, get together, joining of forces, etc., and get on with running 'our' club.

Lets wait for an offical response by 1893.But if it is a NO.Then i will never again support any merger or closer ties with any other Enfield club.It will be a total and clean break,as i understand our board have taken the decision to never again enter into discussions in the future if this latest offer of talks is turned down.

Did anyone ever think the answer would be anything other than NO?
What is there to gain, for either club other than a united front to get a "proper" stadium in the borough.
I am all in favour of a merger & to have one "proper" team playing in Enfield, however I cant see that happening in the near future so yes lets shelf the idea & move on.

As I recall no offer was made to Enfield(xxxx) and as they have no connection at all with Enfield let them get on with it

Thats a good point.Was the offer made to Mr Whittington when the club was EFC or E1893FC.I thought the offer was made after the liquidation,but i could be wrong.

Either way, i am happy that my club made two formal approaches at reconsiliation.If nothing comes of it (as looks higly likely), i can sleep well at night knowing we have acted correctly and always in the best interests of football in Enfield.

Yes it does.If we made the original offer to EFC,then that doesn't necessily mean our offer of merger talks would extend to the newly formed club.

Why merge with a newly formed club that plays in the Essex Senior League and in Hertfordshire? What would the benefit be?

At present,not much,but if 1983 are playing at the same level as us in a few years time and playing in Enfield,then that situation would have a negative effect on us as a club,as would the fight for sponsership,coverage in local papers..etc.

Ps..If tenative merger talks started now,there would be a good chance 1983 would be in the Ryman North by the time any talks were finalised.
