  1. 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.
  2. Well done everyone, great away win for Town this afternoon after our enforced winter break. Good to see four different names on our scoresheet today, and encouraging to note that three of the top teams in our division dropped points this afternoon, and the three teams immediately behind in the table all lost. So, a number of positives from todays matches. Let's give credit and show appreciation for the result to Andy and the boys. Enjoy the win! 'UP THE TOWN'
  3. It has just been announced that our league match at East Thurrock tomorrow evening has had to be postponed due to storm damage problems.
  4. 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
  5. WR if you are referring to SR then yes he did a superb job whilst a board member. Town will greatly miss his personal contribution. He needs to be replaced. If you, or anyone else, with a sales & marketing background can assist, speak to one of our board members. Yes, falling attendances are a big worry for non-league clubs like ourselves. Enfield Borough is a key catchment area for Spurs and Arsenal, as well as ourselves, and Tottenham's new 60,000+ capacity stadium will definitely have affected our attendances, and it is a big worry.
  6. Couldn't agree more. andyetfc is absolutely right in mentioning the implications of promotion from the IPL to the National League.There will be essential ground improvement work to be carried out, to achieve the new ground grading criteria,within a given period of time, and it will need to be funded. Once the work and cost has been established, it might be possible to apply for a Grant to cover all or part of the total cost involved. 72wemblyfinal you are spot-on with your comments about the need for more members, to be actively involved, in raising more finance for our club. Those that continually complain, or make cheap comments, about our club or individuals, need to think about what damage they are doing on a national fans forum website. They also need to remember " it's not what the club can do for them, it's what they can do for the club". As the old saying goes "If you are not part of the solution - you are part of the problem".
  7. Actually, four of our players joined the Urchin's, you are forgetting Remi Sutton, who also played against us on Saturday. You say Hornchurch bought three (or was it four?) of our players. With all this talk about finance, I am sure we would all be very interested to know how much Hornchurch paid us for these players? Also, how much did ETFC pay-out for the other players you say we purchased? Please share your information.
  8. Yes, a very disappointing result for the Town this afternoon, against a club who poached a number of our best players last season, and were League favourites for promotion at the start of the campaign, due to their funding and ability to offer high wages, to attract top non-league talent. I wasn't personally at the match today so it is very difficult to comment on where it all went so badly wrong in the first half. Just a few days back, we went to Margate, kept a clean sheet, and won 3-0. A commendable performance and result. Today it was always going to be a challenging match, against a very good side, and that is the way it turned out. Clearly, there are lessons to be learnt from todays reverse, and everyone will expect to see big improvement when we face Bognor Regis at the QEII Stadium next weekend. I will be up to see that one for myself, and to show support for our Club.
  9. Ha, Ha, A-W a bad day at the office for the Town this afternoon, but I see Cheshunt are losing 0-2 at home to Leatherhead, so not a lot to smile about eh?
  10. The new guy has come on in the 35th minute. sooner than later OT.
  11. I'm keeping quiet. Every time I post today they score again!
  12. No, not as sure, but hoping we don't leak any more, and can still get something from the match.
  13. Early days OT. Still enough time for our guys to put a couple past Joe Wright.
  14. To be fair OT that looks a pretty strong lineup and bench. Chances are Okojie will be used today as an impact substitute, bearing in mind he only signed this morning.
  15. Good News folk! Town have just announced the signing of 24-year old 6' 3" forward SHAUN OKOJIE who netted against us earlier in the season, at the QEII Stadium, when we beat Corinthian Casuals 3-1 back in September. Shaun is a prolific goal scorer. during the first of his two spells at Corinthian Casuals he scored 50 goals in 53 league matches between 2015-17. His previous clubs include Hitchin Town, Aldershot, Wealdstone, Eastbourne Borough, Leatherhead, Dover Athletic and Concord Rangers. Well done to Manager Andy Leese on moving so quickly to replace Mo, and registering Shaun this morning in advance of our trip to Hornchurch this afternoon. Welcome to the club Shaun! Keep adding to your very impressive goal-scoring record!!
