  1. Those of us who travelled to Hanwell's Powerday Stadium yesterday, on a bitterly cold afternoon, were rewarded with another fine performance by our players, against a good Hanwell side, and a well deserved win, which saw Town make history by reaching the FA Trophy 3rd Round Proper for the first time ever. This was a real team performance for our Club, both on and off the pitch. Well done and congratulations to Manager Andy Leese, Mario and Ian, all our players who delivered this result, and last but not least, not forgetting our loyal band of Towners, who collectively must have accounted for a
  2. OPPOSITION UPDATE Chichester City 0-0 Hanwell Town (Chichester win 3-1 on Penalties) Ahead of their FA Trophy contest with Town on Saturday, Hanwell made changes to the XI that featured against Chertsey last time out - when they suffered a first Isthmian south central league loss in eight matches, and their first home defeat of the season. Last night, after a goal-less ninety minutes, the match went straight to penalties, which Chichester won 3-1, to advance to the next round of the Velocity Trophy competition. Hanwell await us on the back of two consecutive defeats.
  3. Great result last night! Congratulations and well done to Andy, Mario, Ian, and all our players, on this win, which extends our unbeaten home record, and sets us up nicely for our FA Trophy match at Hanwell on Saturday. COYT
  4. Interesting to note that our FA Trophy opponents Hanwell Town lost their unbeaten home record on Saturday, when they went down 0-1 to Chertsey at the Powerday Stadium. Tomorrow night, while we host Hornchurch at the QEII Stadium, Hanwell will be playing away, down this way, at Chichester City (remember them?) in The Alan Turvey Trophy. How do you fancy our chances on Saturday? Please spare a moment to share your thoughts with others, on how you see the game, and the likely outcome, bearing in mind there will be no extra time or replay, if the score is level at ninety minutes, it will
  5. Congratulations and well done to Andy, Mario, Ian, our players, and supporters on delivering this result, which well and truly keeps us firmly in the title race this season. It is very encouraging that we have bounced back straight away, after the hiccup at BS earlier in the week, and it bodes well for the rest of the season. If everyone pulls together, and gets behind the team, there is no limit to what we can achieve this season. Keep the faith, and that fantastic, noisy Towner vocal support going, it really does inspire and motivate our players. COYT
  6. HANWELL HERE WE COME After our successful trip to Bedfordshire on Saturday, we have been drawn away again, this time to Hanwell Town, in the Second Round Proper of the FA Trophy, to be played on Saturday 27 November. Many Towners may already be familiar with Hanwell's Powerday Stadium from previous visits, which is only a relatively short distance away from Enfield, via the A406 North Circular Road to Hangar Lane Roundabout, then West on the A40 towards Perivale & Greenford. The ground is in Perivale Lane. postcode UBE 8TL. A bit about our opponents. Like ourselves, Hanwell
  7. What a result, and what a really enjoyable cup-tie ! Matches against Southern League Premier division sides are always tricky, hard-fought affairs, particularly away from home, and this FA Trophy First Round Proper encounter, was no exception. Both sides were well prepared for this cup-tie, and The Waders, having beaten Wisbech Town 2-0 away in the previous round, were in confident mood, but Town having previously ko'd Met Police themselves at the QE2 stadium, were up for the challenge. They looked to have the edge for most of this match, and deserved their hard-earned just reward.
  8. Thanks for the updates seemgee. Well, there's another excellent away win for Andy and our players, which really does speak volumes for the quality of our team this season, and of our chances at the top end of the table. Winning together is what it all about, and I'm sure all Towners will be delighted with this result today, particularly as we came from behind in the last 15 minutes of the match. Well done everyone, think our present form should certainly boost confidence for our trip to Bedfordshire next Saturday, when we play Biggleswade in the FA Trophy. See you there !
  9. Can't talk for others, but I personally really enjoyed this match, between two very good sides. It was a classic cup-tie, which was a great credit to non-league football. Both teams gave a good account of themselves, and based on chances Town deserved to edge it, but it was mighty close, and The Met will be kicking themselves that they failed to convert their penalty, which was brilliantly saved by Nathan McDonald. Town did our Club proud on the day, and we can now look forward to a trip up to Bedfordshire, to play Biggleswade Town in the FA Trophy First Round Proper on Saturday 13th November.
  10. Met Police Form Update After 11 League matches our opponent's are seventh in the Southern League Premier Division South table with 22points. Interesting to note that whilst they have only won one of their five home matches at Imber Court, they have won five and drawn one of their six away matches. Will they Cop it at the QE2 stadium tomorrow ? We are about to find out ! As I am sure most Towners will be aware, if the score is level at 90 minutes, there will be no extra time or replay, it will go straight to penalties. Please your thoughts on the match and likely outcom
  11. Southern League Premier South sides always provide us with a stiff challenge, unlike 'The Rocks' last weekend, and against Met Police this Saturday, the challenge will be a lot different, and our players will need to pull out their best performance to come out on top. By all accounts, Met Police are widely regarded as a half decent side. They are well organised, and don't concede a lot of goals. We have one of the best goal differences in our lsthmian League Premier Division, and have delivered some excellent results this season against strong opponents. A very close, tough match is
  12. How right you are CC. An oversight on my part, I didn't check last nights results. Sorry!
  13. MATCH PREVIEW : FA TROPHY DAY BECKONS This Saturday Town return to cup action, when they welcome Southern League Premier Division South side Metropolitan Police to the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium, for what what promises to be a very close, thrilling FA Trophy Third Round Qualifying encounter. The Blues are having a good season, and are unbeaten on their travels so far this season, so Town will need to deliver another impressive, dominant, high octane performance, throughout the match, to emerge victorious and progress to the First Round Proper of this prestigious national cup competi
  14. Sure everyone will join me in saying well done and thanks to Manager Andy Leese and all our players for a great performance, result, and three points today. Would be good to hear from some of the Towners who saw the match this afternoon. What did they make of the goal-blitz they witnessed ? Why only one goal in the second half. Did we take our foot off the pedal ?
