  1. This match, between the top two sides in the league, certainly lived up to expectation, and a draw was the fairest outcome in this gripping encounter, which was a great advert for non-league football. Worthing had the better of the first half, but Town stepped up their game after the interval, and were dominant and dangerous for much of the second period. There is a long way to go, but Town have made a great start to the new season, and if they can keep the present squad of players together, maintain / improve current form, there is every reason for optimism that we can make the play-offs this
  2. It has been confirmed today on the ETFC official website that fans favourite Mo Faal might well extend his stay at the club this season. Also, good to read that Town have signed highly rated 18 year old forward Luke Cook, who has been on trial at Brentford B. Welcome to The Town Luke ! We wish you a long and successful stay !
  3. Welcome The Mackerel Men ! This Saturday league leaders Town go head-to-head with pre-season title favourites Worthing at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium, in what should be one of the closest, most exciting matches of the season. Both teams are in good form, and will fancy their chances. Town have a !00% home record, conceding only one league goal to date at the QE2 stadium. The Mackerel Men from West Sussex, played away to Kingstonian on Wednesday evening, and registered an impressive 3-4 win, to go second in the table, just one point behind Town with one game in hand. There sh
  4. I really enjoyed this match, and both teams are to be congratulated on their own contribution towards a thrilling North London derby. Both teams went flat-out for a win, both needed the points, and in all honesty it could have gone either way. Town are playing well, have won all of their five (5) home matches, but last night they had to dig deep, to hold on and triumph in this tense, very nervy contest. Think many would agree this was one of our hardest matches of the season to date. Well done to Manager Andy Leese, his staff, and all our players on this excellent team performance, and o
  5. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE This has been quite a week for The Town. We have played and defeated two Surrey sides in Isthmian Premier Division fixtures, one top, one bottom of the table, have scored 5 goals in the process, and kept two clean sheets. Yesterday, Towners who made the trip to Fetcham Grove, saw Andy Leese's players deliver a very impressive, totally dominant performance, and a well deserved win. Apart from the early missed penalty, Town could, and should, have quite easily doubled the final score, with the number of chances created which somehow went begging. You could be forg
  6. Tomorrow (Saturday) Town travel to Fetcham to play Leatherhead in the Isthmian Premier Division, on the back of a very impressive performance and 2-0 win against League leaders Kingstonian at the QEII Stadium, earlier in the week, which lifted us up to third in the table. Think it would be fair to say The Tanners have not made the best of starts to the new season and, after their 2-3 away defeat at Bognor on Tuesday evening, are currently bottom of the IPD table, with just 4 points from nine matches. Leatherhead have lost five of their last six matches, including a 7-0 defeat at Bishops S
  7. Thanks CC for your interesting comments and predictions. Much as I would love to see Billy Bricknell in our starting line-up this evening, I think it highly unlikely. It has nothing to do with selection, more to do with his present level of fitness. He was unavailable this season for quite some time, and is at present starting on the substitutes bench. At Chelmsford he came on in the 83rd minute, and played 12 minutes including added time. Tonight we shall have to wait and see. Think he might well appear at some stage ! Well done to the K's if they have agreed a £50m with Chelsea for
  8. Another match day is here, and tonight, after Saturdays FA Cup exit, Town supporters will be hoping to see a positive reaction from our players, to this setback, with a determined, morale-boosting, match-winning performance. After two disappointing away results, we need to deliver a top draw performance this evening against Kingstonian, and we need to make home advantage tell, and take three points from the match. It is still early days, and the season is still young, but results are always the most important thing for everyone, and we all want Town to be winning matches, playing goo
  9. After the excitement of the FA Cup, we return to Isthmian Premier Division action tomorrow (Tuesday) evening when we entertain table toppers Kingstonian at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium. KO 7.45pm. This should be another close encounter between the two sides, and Town will be looking to get back to winning ways, and secure three points to close the gap at the top of the table, before we visit Leatherhead this weekend. Don't know how many Towners take a look at our opponent's website before a match, but sometimes it can be quite rewarding. Kingstonian have a good website, and their p
  10. Having braved yesterday's miserable weather conditions to attend this match, along with a good turnout of the Town faithful, I was interested to read what others made of this cup-tie and the result. Having chatted to some of the Chelmsford officials and supporters at half-time, and after the match, they thought we played well, gave them a very close game, and were pleased to win by the narrowest of margins, albeit with a well struck goal. It is always disappointing to lose and go out of this competition, but our players put in a good shift, and went close with a couple of good chances, in a go
  11. Great Result Town ! Before last night's reverse, Hadley were unbeaten in any competition this season and, after our showing against them last Saturday, we needed to up our game in last night's replay, match their energy, attitude and spirit, deliver a much improved performance, and secure our place in the next round away to Chelmsford City. As we all know, in tough league or cup encounters, it is not always just about skills, it is about belief, confidence, aggression, determination to win duels, and performing better individually, and as a team. Mission accomplished, our playe
  12. You missed a very close encounter of the worrying kind on Saturday 4WF, but we survived and have a chance to put things right tomorrow. The young Hadley player who caught everyone's eye on Saturday was Solomon Ofori. a very quick skilled individual who caused us plenty of problems. We will certainly need to keep very close tabs on him tomorrow evening.
  13. An attractive tie for the winners of tomorrow evenings replay. Chelmsford play in the National League South and are currently 11th in the table, having played six matches, winning 2, drawing 2, and losing 2. Last Saturday, they beat Little Oakley 5-1 at home in the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. The Third Qualifying Round matches will be played on Saturday 2nd October.
  14. Old Towner, we haven't had a bad start to the season, and all teams occasionally have an off day. Hadley, play two levels below us (level 5), are unbeaten this season, and look a decent side. Whilst I don't believe we under-estimated them, we now know what we are up against tomorrow evening, and need to go prepared, which I'm sure we will. It will undoubtedly be another close game, but if our players display their own strength and capabilities, and the team collectively give a high octane Premier Division performance, we will be in with a very good chance of success. Keep the faith. COYT
