  1. Thanks for your posts, Swifty. I like to keep an eye on how Ashford are doing. The non-league paper never tells you much. I'm also having trouble with all these new divisions, as it's got confusing as to who's in what division, since the changes. Anyway,good to see that a couple of old stalwarts ie Mark Bitmead and Scott Weight are still doing well for your team. Good luck for the season.

    Looks like two of your players have signed for Met Police, that of Jack Beadle and Alex Fisher.

    Ash Trees 1 United 1

    Never realised that, Manurgrate. I rather like the East[central] division for local-ish action. It will be interesting to see what teams are placed where. My team, Slough, look like they are gping to be put in a newly formed South West Premier division rather than the Midlands orientated Southern Premier division, that we are in now. Not sure what to make of it, yet.

    Ash Trees 1 United 1

    Thanks for the reply, Swifty. Being that both teams are mid-table this season, it will be interesting to see how you both do next season. Have a soft spot for both clubs,so hope you both can push up the table.

    Harrow Borough v Enfield Town

    It's funny you mention Brad Wadkins and Ryan Blake. When they were both playing for Chesham under Andy Leese, they were both recognised as quality players, and were very much sought after by other clubs. The trouble is, players get injuries and get older and lose their edge, and time catches up with them. I was hoping for big things from Brad for Slough this season. He started the season well but seemed to lose focus and enthusiasm, with what our managers wanted him to do. He has been carrying an injury but I wonder if he's got a mental issue about it, thus affecting his game and holding him back from being the class footballer he can be. I think Andy Leese will change players, if he cannot get them back to their former glories. I think Enfield fans will need to be patient on this, this season. Although a 5-0 drubbing to any side is galling, because of Enfield's indifferent form, it's hardly shocking. What will be more worrying, is the lack of fight, consdering Harrow are hardly the best team in town. Ryan Blake will score goals and create opportunities. Is he really the player to blame for this defeat? I would be looking at other areas in your team, to see why goals came to Harrow so readily.

    Stopped the rot. Can you make it back to back wins?

    Brad Wadkins

    As a Slough fan gutted to see that Brad Wadkins has joined you lot over yonder. Sure the Enfield massive will take a liking to him. He's getting over an injury but has been excellent for most of the appearances he made for us. I'm sure he will prove to be a great signing for Enfield. Not happy with our managers for this !

    Enfield v Needham Market

    I read the Enfield forum regularly but am not an Enfield fan [ I'm a Slough fan actually] but what amazes me currently, is how fixated some of your fans have become with their negative views about Andy Leese and your team. To me many are missing the point by wanting short term success but are not looking at the bigger picture. I think many of you have been spoilt by Bradley Quinton's successful stint in the job, that it has clouded your judgement, with many expecting success to come overnight, for what is a difficult rebuilding job. Having watched Andy Leese's teams both at Chesham and at Potters Bar, the man you have recruited as manager is/was a first class appointment by your board and deserves longer than half a season to prove it to you. If I was an Enfield fan, I would be looking to see what he can do over a few seasons [ 3 at the very least ] rather than judging him on individual games. Of course all fans want to watch attractive football and for their team to be winning matches in style but getting a winning mentality and building a team to be proud of, takes time to do. Enfield are currently 14th in the table, is that so bad after starting with virtually no pre season,a new manager and a scratch squad? I would have thought if your team could push on and get a tenth place finish and maybe win a local cup,it would be a relatively good season. as a starting point for Andy's reign. Of course, plenty of room for improvement on a match to match basis but not as bad as some are saying, surely?

    Leatherhead v Town

    Read this thread and am amazed how quickly some Enfield supporters are jumping on Andy Leese's back,when your team are not even halfway through the season yet. Seems quite mad,whatever results have been. These fans are totally unrealistic and seem to think the manager has a magic wand. I think you should be focussing on the long term and looking for Andy Leese to build a successful team over a few seasons,which he will do if given the chance. Building a consistent team takes time. Any team can be a flash in the pan one season wonder but building something special is a lot harder. I do, however agree that changes will need to be made but to me that is a natural progression of any squad ie lowering the average age of the players,cherry picking players, replacing injury prone players etc .
  13. What a comeback for Slough at Merthyr on Tuesday night 4-0 down to comeback and win 4-5. My team have got great spirit in the camp, pardon the pun ! The title race is certainly bubbling along nicely with Kettering,Slough, Hereford, Kings Lynn and Weymouth all currently hitting some form, and with quite a few other teams still hanging on to the aforementioned coat tails. A hell of a way to go yet but for sheer entertainment value, of the games I've seen this season in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier, it's proving to be a watchable delight. With winter to come though, results/form can change, so it wouldn't surprise to see me to see a couple of other teams making progress towards the top. Hitchin is one team that comes to mind.They are not the best footballing side in the world and games against them are always a scrap but they are resilient and always hard to beat. Can't see them winning the title this season but think they will take points off good sides. Come On You Rebels !
  14. I'm hoping Slough are going to win it ! Think you need to include Kettering, Banbury and Frome as potential challengers, too.

    Oh and by the way I don't know Andy Leese personally.
