The FA CUP comes to Enfield this Saturday and, with no Premier League games being played, it's a great opportunity for everyone to show local pride, and bring family and friends to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, to cheer on local side Enfield Town against Harrow Borough. The winners of this match will receive £3000 from the Emirates FA CUP prize fund, and a place in the next round with a further £4500 at stake. Both teams will be very keen to win this match. Harrow have made a good start to the new season, taking maximum points from their opening four league fixtures. That was before Bank Holiday Monday, when they travelled to Hendon and got a very rude awakening, on the wrong end of a 6-0 thrashing. Not the kind of result wished for five days before a major cup encounter.! Form and early season league results count for very little in one-off cup competitions, where teams raise their game, a home draw can be a definite advantage, and why unexpected shock results occur very season. This unmissable match will be a very close, exciting contest. Town Manager Andy Leese and our players will be well prepared for this important match, and will be very keen to progress in this prestigious money-spinning national competition. Let's get right behind them with plenty of noisy Enfield support and encouragement.! Good luck everyone. See you there.! 'COME ON THE TOWN'
Tonight Town welcome our friends from Bedfordshire. With our opening match of the new season just one short week away, Town host Barton Rovers of the Southern League this evening, at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, in our final pre-season friendly. It provides a great opportunity for us Towners' to see how manager Andy Leese's new look team are shaping up, before the real business starts next Saturday, when we entertain Folkestone in our opening Bostik League Premier Division fixture. If you are at a loose end this evening, fancy a couple of pints, some company and a bit of excitement, why not join other Towners' for some Friday night action under the lights. The weather forecast is good, so look forward to seeing you there. Enjoy the match. COYT
Easter weekend is traditionally a make or break time for teams battling for promotion, or struggling to avoid relegation. This year is no exception and, after weeks of uncertainty, Town have performed heroics in recent matches to claw their way back as serious play-off contenders. With three matches remaining this season our destiny is in our own hands. On Saturday we host Folkestone Invicta at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium (3.00pm), before visiting Harlow on Bank Holiday Monday. All to play for after outstanding team performances against league leaders Bognor and Billericay. Town will be looking to deliver more of the same this weekend, with six precious points up for grabs, and a fine run of five consecutive wins behind them. A bumper crowd is expected at the QE2 Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as Town continue their chase for a play-off spot. It is a huge match, a real Easter cracker - DON'T MISS IT !! Happy Easter Everybody! 'COME ON YOU TOWN'
After Tuesday evenings thriller against Billericay, Town face another tough test tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon, when they host second-placed Havant & Waterlooville in the Ryman Premier Division, on The Hawks first every visit to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. Inconsistency, and a disappointing sequence of results, may have badly hit our own chances of reaching the play-offs this season, but you rest assured Town will be going flat out to win as many of our nine remaining matches as possible. Back in November, Town travelled to Westleigh Park and beat Havant 0-2. It was a close, physical game, and if that encounter is anything to go by, a hum-dinger of a match is in prospect tomorrow afternoon, in front of what should be a good-size crowd. To mark next weeks International Women's Day (8th March), and support the much publicised 'Women at the Game' initiative, Enfield Town are offering FREE admission to all women and girls at tomorrows match. A great chance to come along to a live match, support your local team, and make new friends. Best of luck to Brad and the boys. Let's deliver another high energy performance, take our chances, and do yourself justice guys! See you there folk! 'COME ON YOU TOWN'
