[photo] Everyone must now despise Enfield Town Third division club Barnet FC will prepare for the influx of several million supporters by borrowing some folding seats from a nearby church and 'muddling through'. Fan Martin Bishop said: "As
  2. Cheers for that, Duke. Have ordered the latest issue. The Town are also featured in the latest Groundtastic (GT67). There was a half-page feature in the autumn issue too.
  3. Well, I've had a go at translating the first part of this but the presenter spoke so quickly at times I couldn't get all of it.

Text: Enfield's footie glory is only a billion away Congratulations to AFC Wimbledon, promoted to the football league just eight years after fans formed their own breakaway club in response to the original team's move to Milton Keynes. I await a similar resurrection for my own local team. When I was a teenager, Enfield FC was always threatening to "do a Wimbledon" and rise up from the non-leagues. How we cheered at th
