    Agree with the comments above and we now all have to focus on not only surviving and getting over this crisis but helping the Club to do the same. I hope as many of us as possible will now renew our membership, season tickets and make donations.

    I have to agree with Andy and OT. At  the present time I am only concentrated on hoping as many of us stay clear of the virus and through out the nation come out of this fit and healthy. The sooner that it's over we can all get back to what we do best on this forum, see things differently. Until then lets all hope for a better future for all of us Old and Young alike.

    EDS Refunds of fines and league registration payments! Will you be wanting supporters to get their gate money back? 
    All clubs will need as much money as possible and so will the leagues. The season is over, there’s more to life than football and the decision won’t please everyone. However, what we all want is to see all our fellow supporters in the autumn.

    I think it's a very emotive subject, and there's an awful lot of additional stress on everyone at the moment - I'd suggest that we all might be well advised to take a step back and think before we post. Ultimately at the end of the day, we are (mainly) all Town fans, and I think all good people despite our many disagreements - now is the time to be supportive of each other, and hopefully this forum can be a source of humour/banter as well as keeping the Town collective in touch with each other.

    I am afraid life is going to be put on hold but if we save one life by doing so it will be worth it. Whether how we are going about it is the right way only time would tell. At least something is being done.

    Agree with much of what was said in the previous two posts - what was pleasing was the way we battled to the end and kept the clean sheet.
    Should have put the game to bed earlier but Bishop's Stortford will feel they could have got something out of the game if they'd taken their chances so I think we should be pleased with the 3 points. 
    Glenn Wilson was brought into central defence with Jon Muleba moving across to the right to replace Sam Hatton (I wonder if that was with Aaron Greene's pace in mind?). Lyle Della-Verde also replaced Ken Charles in the starting 11. MoM for me was Lyle, with strong performances too from Jon Muleba and Ryan Blackman. Nice to see Shaun Okojie get his goal - a proper striker's goal getting across the defender to meet a good cross from Muleba.
    Strange weather - not as cold as in recent weeks (about time!) but with a strong wind that had an impact.

    Even the great Enfield sides of the 70s and 80s only attracted gates of 500 - 600 or so for most league fixtures often less. So the fact that our average  attendance is around the 360 is a reflection of our location. Many other football options exist for Enfield based football supporters. 
     
    What a difference it would make if we got the type of crowds being enjoyed by Worthing. 

    This has arguably been one if not most successful seasons we have had , consistently in the top 7 or 8 ,  one of our better FA cup runs and our best ever FA Trophy run. So it’s disappointing we haven’t improved on last seasons average which makes me think we may have reached our level  for the time being. I’d very much like to be proved wrong come May  
    Even so it’s no mean achievement to have established ourselves as an Isthmian Premier League club  but to move on we need to grow our club - it can be done but it will not be easy.

    Always amuses me that when we have a bad result this message board is full of comments but quiet when we have a decent result. 
    Anyway my view is that promotion would be a step to far for us at the moment. We need to grow our club and develop additional sources of income. The Academy for next season is a big step in the right direction but I do think we need a bigger fan base than 400 to compete at the next level. 
    Some fans - on here at least - seem dissatisfied with being in the top half - I dread to think how they would feel if we do go up and find ourselves in a relegation battle. 
    Anyway I’m looking forward to the visit of the League leaders next Saturday. Should be a good test and hopefully we will get a good crowd. Maybe prove me wrong.

    Back in November we lost 1-3 at home to Folkestone, and in their last six matches they have beaten Hornchurch (2-1), East Thurrock (3-1), and League table-toppers Worthing (1-0), so they are not a bad side, and are probably strong contenders for a play-off place.

    In the absence of any comments so far from the Town faithful who travelled to the game, it is interesting to read the Folkestone supporters take on the match, which they conclude could have gone either way, particularly in the last half an hour. Also, special mention of an outstanding goal-keeping performance by Nathan, and a fine video clip showing his superb save from an Invicta goal-bound free kick.

    Never the easiest of grounds to pick-up points, so a decent away performance and result against a side currently lying 4th in the Table. Well done guys!

    Let's hope we can repeat our FA trophy win at Stortford on Tuesday evening, and produce another top draw performance next Saturday at the QE2 stadium, in front of a big crowd, when we host league leaders Worthing.

    72wemblyfinal reacted to littlehampton in Enfield Town v Bognor Regis   
    Back in December Town travelled to Bognor on a Tuesday evening and lost a IPL match 4-1. Yesterday, with home advantage, we gave a much better account of ourselves at the QE2, and really could (should) have been out of sight by half time.

    This was an impressive all-round team performance and, after a goal-less first half, Town were determined to make amends for the Hornchurch reverse, and with their relentless pressure continuing after the interval, goals looked inevitable, and duly arrived from Lewis Taaffe and Ken Charles, to seal an important well deserved home win, which lifted the spirits of the loyal, vocal, Town faithful.

    This was The Rocks first defeat in seven games, and an important three points for Town against one of our main play off rivals. Well done all! An afternoon to remember. Enjoy!  UP THE TOWN

    Enjoyed yesterday’s game. Thought we were good value for the win. The players we have added recently have strengthened the team and having Lewis available again is like having another new signing. 
    Agreed with the Mom decision- Scott Thomas -he’s often overlooked but makes a great contribution. 
    Let’s see where we are at the end of the month.

    Exactly right. 
    From my enquiries we need to increase the seating over the smaller stand, and segregate the away supporters. 
    Anyone got a spare 15k knocking around? 
    I really wish we could have discussions on here about how to help our club raise more finances, playing tactics ect
    And not the same old same old, sack the manager every time we lose or play a long ball.

    I see us on a similar path to that of Wealdstone FC since they lost their ground in 1990-91..It has taken them nearly 30 years to climb back (very slowly) to the National League South..We are less than 20 years into our project.

    Agree completely LS - this is very much a long game, and if that means spending more time where we are getting the various foundations in place (and by that, I don't just mean the first team side of things), then that's fine with me if it means we're better prepared for the long run.

    By my reckoning we have to play three of the six teams currently above us away from home, folkestone, Hornchurch, Horsham. And one of the top 6 at home Worthing. 
    That gives us twelve games against teams currently lower than us, six home six away.

    Yes a great performance and an even greater result. 
    When I asked what our playing budget was at the start of the season I was left a bit taken aback by what I was told. The  quality of players Andy and his team have been able to attract to the club with this reduced budget is really suprising (good job Andy & co) I have been very impressed by Juniors performances, great to see him getting deserved starts now. Showing future  Academy scheme members what is possible with hard work.
