    The Sam Higgins Show

    Well the hosts had no answer to him last night even had the luxury of taking him off halfway through the second half proper team display which was missing from the first game.On the down side think Remi maybe hamstrung. Money in the bank bring on Walthamstow

  3. Hi All, To increase the amount of places you will be able to get a drink within the ground, on Saturday the club will be opening a cash only bar near the burger van. This includes real ales and beers. Please note this is cash only. This week's guest polypin is Brewers Gold

  5. Great draw for the Jets, 2-2, after such a tumultuous week and with a scratch team featuring only 3 first team regulars. Mainly and understandably backs to the wall for much of the game, a forgettable first half ended goalless and gave no hint of the drama to come after the break. The high flying K's went ahead within a minute of the restart, but the imperious Lewis Putman replied with a towering and perfectly placed header soon after. Midway through the half the disappointing visitors went ahead again but for an even shorter period. Puts posed problems all afternoon despite plo

  6. Yes it appears that having sent out the round dates to all the Leagues concerned the Berks & Bucks FA having received no objections made the draw. Now other Leagues (the SSML was not among these) are moaning that they don't want their clubs playing County Cup games on Saturdays and have pestered the County to back down. With all these late changes taking place this week it has led to many of the SSML sides kicking their heels on Saturday. The blame lays entirely at the County, they should have either made the competition midweek from the start (not from the Third Round when

  7. Great result to wake up to! 4 wins, a draw and a loss from our first 6 games, 5 of those 6 teams in the top half of the league, and another clean sheet! We'd all have happily settled for that at the start of the season! Roll on the the next round of the Cup 😀 Can somebody who saw last night's match give those of us who couldn't attend a rundown please?!

    Town v Cheshunt

    I was chatting to an old school friend when all I heard behind me was apparently ‘a senior Cheshunt official’ addressing his Enfield Town FC counterpart as a ‘f#%king W’ and ‘the lot of you are f#%king W’s’ in a bellowing fashion-and you’re highlighting ‘class’ ? I asked what all the shenanigans were about and was told that home teams no longer need to provide post match hospitality/food to opposition players this season. Enfield Towns officials apparently informed Cheshunt of this in accordance to league rules as part of confirmation of the fixture. I’d suggest the Cheshunt cou

Wasn't expecting a game as easy as that today, a combination of good Urchin football and chaotic PB defending just ask their number 4 he was great entertainment,just as I thought he couldn't get any worse well he did fair play to the visitors they plugged away.Second half became almost like a training session and score could have been a lot higher,anyway back in business,up the Urchins

    I do agree ! The squad is starting to take shape after a torrid pre season. Players looking much fitter and starting to feel comfortable around each other, the formation looked like 4-2-3-1 with Maja & Scott holding who I thought done a terrific job . Our new LB looks very good I thought him and Jerry work well together , really impressed with Jerry at the back he’s been a rock so far I hope we can continue this it’s only the beginning

    Decent game yesterday. I tried to put names to the 4 or so new players but struggled (I miss having the team sheet pinned on the wall by what used to be the club shop). I thought our new left back looked useful both defending and going forward. Percy deservedly man of the match, he had a fine game. Mo looked threatening each time he attacked the goal and will be disappointed that he didn’t get on the score sheet. He had 3 good chances in the second half and would have expected to put at least one of them away. The Brightlingsea keeper will be disappointed to have let Percy’s shot squeeze in ju

  12. TO BE OR NOT TO BE ?? PREVIEW FA Cup matches have a special mystique about them, not least in the early rounds for non-league clubs, like Town and Hadley, and to those of a certain vintage. The FA Cup is the world's oldest soccer competition, and the financial benefits, from success, can keep lower league sides going for years. Plus, the perennial prospect of potential upsets, is what ensures the FA Cup remains a big favourite among us supporters. On Saturday, we welcome the players, officials and supporters of Hadley FC to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium for an intriguing 2nd Qua

    Hx 4 Walthamstow 1

    Comfortable win today, think that 2-0 at half time really made it very difficult for them to get anything out of the game. Speaking of which, we seem to have two games out there, football and Mortal Kombat! Think the tactics from them were that they weren’t going to match us on skill so there was a bit of stick from them in order to unsettle us. Didn’t work but good effort especially from their no 4 of whom the ref gave every chance before finally booking him. I think the cry of ‘finish him’ must have been in Liam Nash’s head for the 3rd goal, an amazing cross from the excellent Sam Higgins. N

  15. What entertainment does £11 buy you? for me it’s belonging to the club, enjoying live sport, my national game, a great off pitch atmosphere and positivity from everyone Great to see the ambulance chasers and moaners back in their caves while real supporters backed the team right till the very end, almost all but responsible for sucking that ball in over the line. positivity builds positivity, glad the negative posts are no where to be seen. Roll on Saturday and an FA Cup tie, brilliant

  17. To be fair Barney, Tuesday's referee, who didn't have a great game, passed down the tunnel unmolested at the end of the game. Liking this new, resilient, Town side, who seem capable of squeezing out wins in tight games where previous incarnations could not. Cautiously optimistic

  18. I do wonder whether the quality of referees is affected by the number of referees deciding to call it a day due to the abuse they get from the sidelines. Ultimately if just a few referees at each level decide that it's not worth the bother, lower ranked referees will need to be promoted to fill the gaps. We've been through this before, I'm definitely not saying that the crowd shouldn't use its home advantage to influence referees decisions, question bad decisions etc. (I certainly do) but what's not OK in my opinion is fans seeking out the referee at the final whistle, surrounding the tunnel a

    Lewes v Enfield Town

    Quite an even first half.........Nathan making a couple of one on one saves to keep Boro out. We did seem to struggle in the first 45 getting out of our half and there are still occasions when we have trouble holding the ball and giving it up way too easily. However, we got stronger as the half went on and game finished 0 0 at the half with both teams looking dangerous in the box and HB probably looking slightly the stronger. The other thing we need to address is ball retention. A couple of times our midfield lose possession and then it's backs to the wall stuff and you can see why so

    I doubt it would have been a record crowd. Enfield (1893) FC don't play in Enfield, so I'm not sure how many fans they have (or would have brought). No complaints with being drawn at home to a Step 5 team though, long may that continue. Good luck to the Towners against Hadley!

  30. Well hopefully you are all aware of our annual beer festival (this is the 5th one) and we have sourced some great beers and gins, including a surprise beer made just for us ‘the mighty urchin’ and the gins from South Africa make a return. On the day we will have food , live music and games. As always we look for people companies to sponsor a beer or gin at the cost of £30 to help with the costs. We then promote you or the company on our social media channels which get a lot of good feedback and views. if anyone would like to sponsor or knows a company that would be interested

    Town v Cheshunt

    A great game V a strong Chesunt side I thought we coped really well as a team and individually , the atmosphere was really great with almost 700 credit to all the volunteers and staff once again Jerry stood a rock at the back with his defending a proper defender especially of being a tender age he has a bright future also Maja and captain scott in the midfield is working well with the protection they give to the back 4 , Maja has fitted in the best I’m very impressed with what he brings to the team . I do hope we can continue this and let’s see what happens

    I use the word apparently, similar to allegedly, as unless you’re privy or copied into the emails sent then it’s not 100%, bit like not knowing the case of crime unless you’re in the courts to hear the evidence, but I’m satisfied that the source I spoke with my comments above are 99.9% spot on. Seems like you’re keener on food than the football, I shed to imagine what a banquet looks like in Cheshunt 😂, however the rules state you must ask if your opponents want to take up the offer or if you’re not gonna offer. Unfortunately forcing food/hospitality on opposition club players isn’t o

    Deserved the win - may have been a little bit fortuitous with the pen but that shouldn’t deflect from an outstanding performance, just couldn’t get that 5th goal, their gk was outstanding at the end. What’s the record between being booked and then sent off? Their no 4 must have been close to that! Great win and good performances all around

  37. Great result today Town against another unbeaten side ! Folkestone, like ourselves, have made an excellent start to the new season, and are always difficult to beat on their own ground. Playing in front of the second highest League attendance of the day (839),,this match was too close to call, nothing divided the two sides, and we did very well to come away with a point in a goal-less draw. It will be very interesting to read the comments from Towners who attended this match down on the Kent coast. Think this sets us up nicely for our next home fixture, at the QE2 Stadium on Bank Hol

    Good to read some fair, positive comments on our performance, and the well deserved win, against a battling Brightlingsea side on Saturday. After a nightmare 100 mile journey from the south coast to see this match, I thought our guys gave a good account of themselves, there was definitely a buzz about the place, helped by our loyal fans behind the goal who gave our team plenty of support, and must say I really enjoyed the match and the atmosphere. We have signed some decent players, who have strengthened our team, we have won our opening two League fixtures, and at present we sit proudly

    I agree with BenJRider10 and Etfckev. The buzz and positivity around the ground on Saturday was evident and I’m sure that feeling is felt by the players. A nice defensive balance is developing with Josh/Rian/Jerry/Nathan with Scott/Manny holding Scott Thomas certainly much improved from his Pre Season performances and fitness We’ve scored 6 in two but still feel we need a bit more going forward Tougher tests lye ahead but 6/6 is a good start, I’d take 4 out of 6 from this weekend’s double dose in 3 days All roads lead to Folkestone this weekend let’s hope the mom

  46. I think a fan has to try and be realistic - it's not easy I know. Don't get too excited, think longer term. I will be more convinced with a assured victory against Brightlingsea. I was at the match and was ecstatic with the victory but lobbing the ball forward for Mo to run on to is not always going to be the solution. The Carshalton defence were not good enough to cope with the straight bounce off the artificial pitch giving the chance for Mo to latch on. Our defending for the two Carshalton goals was poor (see the highlights) - two crosses, from both wings, and two headers unmarked in the ce

The extra sponsorship income will certainly help and the publicity it will generate should really lift the club's profile. Well done to all involved for getting this over the line 👏👏
