    Good luck

    Completely agree with 4wembleyfinals! Whilst I didn't really want to be in Peterborough for an extra half hour on a Tuesday night, going straight to penalties with no extra time didn't feel right. Penalties always feels unfair when you lose - and brilliant when you win! - but it almost made the journey feel worthless last night! That's how disappointed I was - I agree with others that, financially, last night's result was a disaster but, unfortunately, even with best intentions football has a habit of kicking you in the unmentionables! An objective view of last night, 18 hours after the event, is that we came up against a very good side and acquitted ourselves pretty well for the most part, especially when you consider that was our second game in a few days with little training in the previous 2 weeks due to the Covid isolation. I thought we were on top for the first half, definitely off the pace for the majority of the second half (too much giving the ball away in the midfield area) but did well to claw our way back into the game before the dreaded penalties. Only one miss (actually a save) from either team - and that from our regular penalty taker who rarely misses. Typical - but happens to the best of players, Billy! Man of the match for me was the Peterborough Sports No 10. The attendance was given as 235 - seemed like more, with a good attendance from our fans even if some understandably chose to stay at home. Actually I thought Peterborough Sports handled the game well and certainly better than some of us were expecting when we heard they would only take cash. A very friendly and efficient young lady dealt with the NHS Test & Trace details and signage was clear, with one way systems in operation in part. Seemed like a nice club and I wish them well in the next round. Their twitter feed (@PSLFC) has some very nice things to say about our club and our fans including '2 top sides and as good a game as seen for some time. But off the field a class act with travelling supporters a real credit to you with numerous comments from our staff about their friendliness. What Non-League is about'. Another said ' the London side (is) one of the best I have seen at the Bee Arena'. Well done everybody, even if the lottery of penalties went against us.

    I certainly would hope so. punishing the team that are winning could highlight the stupidity within the crowd and teach them a valuable lesson.

    i haven’t read the story behind this statement but I’m guessing racial abuse. If they followed protocol then good for them!!! it seems they are the only club brave enough to stand up. This is bigger than any single football match!! mindless morons who ruin these games and society in general. 👏 Haringey

    Enfield Town v Lewes

    Really great day on Saturday - the organisation and planning was exceptional - thanks to all the volunteers who made it such a success! As for the game itself, really enjoyable. With a new look defence pretty much, we played very well. Considering the pre season results .. and then no matches in the 2 weeks leading up to this, it was a fantastic result. All the new players look like good aquistions - Percy was bombing down the wing - great to have him back! Gyebi is a powerful centre back, and complements Lee Chappell's long throws which add another dimension to our attacking! And Jared Small came off the bench and put in a great run that was unlucky not to result in a goal! There were a lot of other positives for me .. - it feels like we have a more flexible squad than before - when Chappell went off injured, Josh moved across to left back, and Percy moved into midfield later on when Ryan came off. - we did not sit bac, instead we kept pushing for more goals - we were still chasing and harassing them at the end. - it felt like there was a real team togetherness - the nucleus of last year remains, and seem to get on well - all our goals were well taken and there was some good link up play - Ryan powering through for the 3rd was my personal favourite! - the support was positive and vocal! I don't think Lewes are in a good place - they had a lot of youngsters apparently - but you can only play what is in front of you - we will face harder teams for sure but this was a great start! Feeling confident for the season .. !! Looking forward to the FACup tomorrow night!
