    Enfield Town v Horsham

    Strange game really. We started out in what looked like 4 3 3....I thought Horsham were disappointing 1st half even though Nathan was called into one very good save where their attacker should have scored. Andre took his goal very well with an awkward bouncing ball out of the air and slotted away well. Adam I think won virtually every header all night and did well to feed off Andre's shot for the 2nd goal. 2nd half we came out half asleep and Horsham had us under siege for some time, However, Nathan wasn't called into action that much and Horsham looked less dangerous than I thought they would be. Bilal had 2 very good chances shortly after coming on and hit the post with his second. We really should have put the game to bed earlier and Sam was unlucky to lob the keeper and find the left back covering to clear. Overall a steady display. Both teams would have been unhappy with the referee on a number of occasions(no change there). If we could hold onto the ball better instead of retreating further into our own penalty box it would have made much more comfortable viewing but we probably deserved the win.

  5. Another good result, momentum building nicely! And a decent crowd for a mid-week match which is good to see. Just listened to the Manager’s thoughts on the game on Twitter. Being able to attend only a few games a season, I find these interviews a really helpful way of keeping in touch with what is going on. I’ve heard similar updates from other club managers and consider that Andy Leese comes across very well compared to his peers. His thoughts are always clear and concise and I am sure this is replicated in the dressing room and on the training ground. Keep up the good work!!

    Those were the days though weren't they when it was proper football, unlike now, and we managed perfectly well back then without computers and mobile phones. Did Neil Kirkup have a brother called Joe out of interest who played for West Ham, Chelsea and Southampton.

    Yes, Mark Smith was maybe the player-manager? I think Kirkup was maybe a player for Beford United then or coach? It's a long time ago and no internet pages to check it up on.

    Hello London Eagle. I thank you so much for the Internet address of Bedford Town history. It is a real blast from the past with so many faces from times past, I remember these players as though it was only yesterday, these players were my heroes at the time, I recall arriving at the Queens Park Eyrie early in the hope I could obtain autographs, I was very young at the time. I attended all the Bedford Utd verses Bedford Town matches like yourself, at this point of time was supporting United. I remember Jamie Hunter and Tony McGovern great players at this level. Did McGovern become manager of St Neots for a period of time? I believe Neil Kirkup played a few matches for the Eagles? I am not saying you are incorrect but I believe the manger of Bedford Utd at the time was a player manager called Smith, once again thank you for allowing me to re-live those memories.

    There's a good account and pictures from the Newcastle game here - excellent site with a history of the old Bedford Town club, gets rather sad towards the end: https://sites.google.com/site/bedfordoldeagles/best-years-introduction-page/season-by-season-in-photos-1950-67/1963-4-in-photos

    I was at the game as well. Hard to believe 30 years ago now. Went to all 4 of the Bedford Town v United games in the SML as it was then in 91/92 and 92/93. Both teams had some good players then - Jason Reed and Ian Phelan at Bedford Town, Tony McGovern at Bedford United and Jamie Hunter who played for both. Saw Jamie at Bedford Town last season with a few other of Town's ex-players from that era. The United Manager was Neil Kirkup i think, who scored the winning goal in my first-ever Bedford Town match (also my first ever football match in 1980 v Corby. 91/92 United finished 3rd in the league and Town 4th and 92/92 Town were promoted as Champions and United finished 3rd. Town's goal difference was plus 124 that season and won 36 out of 42 games. Real Bedford yet to drop a point this season so on course to be as good or better a season than that for them, can't see anyone except maybe Ampthill getting even close to them.
