  1. After our well deserved win against Burgess Hill on Tuesday evening, Town will host Bishop's Stortford at the QE2 Stadium (date to be confirmed), after The Blues progressed with a penalty shoot-out win against Merstham last night. This is the first time Town have reached the Semi Final stage in this competition and, hopefully, we can go on and win the Trophy and earn some more useful prize money. Definitely a match not to be missed. Let's see a big turnout to support our guys, and help them all-the-way to the Final. COYT

    Velocity Trophy Semi Final Opponents

    Spot-on Lovely Stuff, your absolutely right, and a bit more news announced today on The Bostik Football League website, Bishop's Stortford have just completed the signing of AFC Hornchurch midfielder, and former Town player NATHAN LIVINGS, so they are certainly quite active in the transfer market at present. No date yet announced for the Semi Final, but we go to them early February for a league fixture, so we will find out how their new signings are settling in.

    Velocity Trophy Semi Final Opponents

    Interesting to note that shortly before their quarter final match at Merstham, Bishop's Stortford announced - via social media - the loan signings of goalkeeper Arthur Janata from Leyton Orient, and midfielder Ben Worman from Cambridge United. Both players played the entire match, and Janata became an instant Blues hero, making two penalty shoot-out saves as Stortford progressed and booked a semi-final tie against Town at Donkey Lane.

    We're in a Cup semi-final - anybody notice?

    Agree Father Jack, this was a really enjoyable match, exciting end -to-end-stuff, and a superb display of attacking from the Town, against a decent Burgess Hill side. Overall this was a good all round team performance, which had the Town faithful in good voice behind the goal. Thought young Josh Davison had an excellent game, scoring a hat- trick, and deservingly being named man-of-the-match. Nothing for the sceptics to complain about last night, but I wouldn't count on it! Well done to Andy and the boys. Keep it up guys, that showing really made my 200-mile round journey very worthwhile.

    Merstham v Enfield Town

    4WF it is always interesting, and appropriate, to hear how the opposition camp saw the match and performance of both sides. Suggest you check it out on https://www.mersthamfc.com/copy-of-match-reports It doesn't, by the way, mention anything about us "huffing and puffing"!!

    Merstham v Enfield Town

    4WF like yourself I wasn't at the match yesterday, but my post-match comments are based on reliable feedback throughout the game. Suggest you take time to read Ken Brazier's match report on the ETFC official website.

    Merstham v Enfield Town

    It is always disappointing to play away to one of the form teams in the IPL, give a good account of ourselves in a very close match, and come away empty-handed. That, according to the excellent Twitter updates on the ETFC official website, is what happened this afternoon. Merstham came into this match, unbeaten in their last six matches (with 5 wins and a draw) and won this encounter with an early goal in the first 15 minutes. Town pressed hard for an equaliser, went close on a number of occasions, but could not find the back of the net. One of those days! Fortunately, a number of the other results went for us today, so we are still in the mix. Be very interested to hear the thoughts of other Towners, who travelled over to Surrey. Was this a good Town performance, did we deserve something from the match, how did our new guy do this afternoon? We go again on Tuesday evening in the League Cup quarter final at home to Burgess Hill. They lost today at home to Bognor. An exciting game in prospect. Look forward to seeing you there!

    EXPERIENCED STRIKER JOINS TOWN

    LATEST NEWS Following the recent injury to Mo, Andy Leese has moved quickly to strengthen our first team squad, with the signing of experienced striker KEZIE IBE. Kezie will be known to many Towners, and full details of his football career, and impressive goal-scoring record with a number of clubs, can be seen in the posting made on the ETFC official website earlier today. Welcome Kezie.

    EXPERIENCED STRIKER JOINS TOWN

    Agree with both Barney and 4WF's comments. It's a crying shame that Mo has suffered this injury , so soon after joining our Club, as he certainly looks a good player and has made a very useful contribution to the team, during the limited games he has played. At the risk of being shot down in flames, my understanding, for what it is worth, is that Mo has broken a toe, not the metatarsal. It was good to see him at the Lewes match last Saturday, and I am sure everyone will join in wishing him a speedy recovery, and return to first team action. Good luck Mo!

    Potters Bar v Enfield Town

    Well done guys, another excellent result for the Town. A long way to go, but we move up to 3rd in the Table, and finish 2018 on a high. Keep it up guys!

    Enfield Town v Wingate & Finchley

    Thanks for the updates seemgee and seasons greetings to you as well. Yes, a good attendance today, and an excellent result for the Town. By all accounts we had enough chances to bang in a few more goals, but winning by a three - goal margin in a NLD match will please most Towners there this afternoon. A sign of progress? Well, its worth remembering we only took one point from our two matches with W&F last season, losing 2-1 away and drawing 1-1 at home. This season we have taken four points off them, drawing 1-1 away, and winning today. So, we are definitely moving in the right direction, and our recent signings are certainly making a difference. Well done to Andy and the boys on this Boxing Day result. Let's stretch this winning run and continue our climb up the Table.

    Happy Christmas Everyone

    Wishing all of our members, and friends throughout the football world, a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy, successful New Year. Also, a BIG thank you to our Board, and everyone behind the scenes, who work so hard to make our fantastic Club what it is today. Enjoy the festive season, and best of luck to Andy and the boys tomorrow against our friends from Wingate & Finchley.

    Town v Harlow

    Well, well, well, quite a week for the Town! Two new signings, two wins on the bounce, and six precious points to show for our efforts! By all accounts an excellent, dominant display today, particularly in the second half. Be interested to hear what the Town faithful made of the game and our overall team performance. Would certainly appear we carried on this afternoon from our excellent showing at Bognor earlier in the week. Are we getting back on track for a spot in the play-offs? Note we don't have another fixture now until Boxing Day, so we should have a fully fit squad, if our players don't over indulge on Christmas Day!!!! Great to be winning again, so well done to Andy and the boys on todays result, and let's hope for more of the same in the second half of the season.
  15. It has just been announced on the ETFC official website that Town have signed experienced central defender Marc Weatherstone from Wingate & Finchley. He is available to play against Harlow Town today. Welcome to the Club Marc.

    Bognor Regis Town v Enfield Town

    Let's start with the obvious. Both teams badly needed a win last night at Nyewood Lane, to close the gap and keep in touch with other promotion candidates. As the old adage goes, if you can't win, don't lose. We didn't, we won! Bognor, with home advantage, started slight favorites, allowing for Towns recent poor run of results, but matches between the two clubs have always been close encounters over the years. With everything to play for, the first half was fast, furious, even, too close to call, until The Rocks broke the deadlock, taking the lead in the 43rd minute, to leave Town a goal down at the interval, and all to do in the second half. After the break, Town continued to press forward in search of an equaliser, and were rewarded when Billy Bricknell headed home in the 68th minute. The deciding goal and match winner came in the 82nd minute when Ryan Blackman fired into the top corner from the edge of the penalty box. Job done! A fine footballing goal won this tight game for an improving Town team. So what about our new forward signing Muhammad Faal who made an impressive contribution on his debut last night? Early days, but the 21 year old, who stands around 6' 3", and boasts a lean physique, is fast, skillful, hardworking, and a constant to the opposition, particularly when breaking forward from mid-field or upfront. Mo certainly looks a very useful signing for the Town, and if last nights display is anything to go on, it won't be long before goals follow. All credit to our players for fine battling performance, and great show of team spirit at Bognor, which secured a memorable victory, three precious points, and moved us back up to 5th in the table. Finally, well done to all the Town faithful who made the long journey down to the South Coast for this match. They saw a very close, entertaining match, and were well rewarded.

    New striker signs

    Great news - well done Andy! Good to see we have signed a young forward with a good pedigree. Look forward to seeing Mo on his debut for Town at Bognor this evening.

    Enfield Town v Kingstonian

    A disappointing home defeat against an in-form K's side, and a poor run of results for Town with six matches without a win. Be interesting to hear what peoples thoughts are on the match. We might not be banging the goals in at present, but our old boys certainly are. Two for Harry Ottaway, two for Mark Kirby in Haringey Boroughs 3-1 win over AFC Hornchurch, and (don't think I should mention this) three for Brandon Adams in Ware's 1-6 win today.

    Enfield Town v Kingstonian

    A good turnout of 433 at the QE2 this afternoon. Now all we need is a win and three points to brighten up the day.

    Enfield Town v Kingstonian

    In the absence of goals and updates so far at the QE2 Stadium, note that our old friend Harry Ottaway has scored two in the first half for Ashford United against Herne Bay, and Brandon Adams has scored for Ware on his debut away to FC Romania.

    FA Trophy 10th November

    4WF everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I certainly have no intention of spending my precious time debating cheap, ill-informed comments, on a national website, which would be a totally meaningless hot-air exercise, and definitely not in the best interests of our Club. You certainly don't need to remind me of anything to do with the old club, as I have a crystal clear recollection, you were not involved, and it has absolutely nothing to do with this discussion. Tomorrow I shall be making a 200 mile round journey to the QE II Stadium, to support our team, and all the hardworking, loyal Towners who work tirelessly behind the scenes, to make our Club what it is today. If you wish to sound me out, to discuss your one-sided views, be my guest. Just don't expect me to agree with you!

    FA Trophy 10th November

    Yes, yesterdays result was a massive disappointment to everyone who supports The Town, not least those of us who made the 70+ mile journey to Basingstoke, to support our guys in a difficult away cup-tie. As CD Towner confirmed in an earlier post, for much of the game we were the dominant side, and we certainly did not deserve to lose. Having taken a first half lead, Town were in control, until two unfortunate individual errors, late in the game, cost us the match. Before some individuals play the blame game, having a go at our team, players, or our Manager, I suggest they read ETFC Press Officer Ken Brazier's excellent match report on the official website, which provides a very fair, well balanced account of the game. Hopefully, our players will bounce back on Tuesday evening, against a good Worthing side, who are playing well and looking for promotion themselves this season. Should be a good match and we need everyone to get behind our guys, and lift them as they go for a win and another three points. See you there?
