Enfield Town v Canvey Island

Recommended Posts

This Saturday Town host an important FA Trophy showdown against Essex outfit Canvey Island at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, and will really need to be on top of their game to progress, and enjoy a good run in this prestigious national competition.

We have already played The Gulls twice in the league this season, drawing 1-1 at home in our opening fixture, before travelling over to The Frost Financial Stadium last Saturday, and convincingly thrashing them 5-1. The match saw no less than ten yellow cards and a straight red for former Towner Tayshan Hayden-Smith.

Town supporters will be hoping our guys make home advantage tell, producing a high-energy stellar performance, supported by a large, noisy, crowd.

The winners of this match will receive a useful £2700 from the FA Trophy prize fund.

Let's hear it for Brad and the boys!

Good luck everyone. See you there.

Morning all.

Another BIG match for Town this afternoon which they need to win.

Good to hear that Harry might be available for selection today. Who would YOU like to see in the Town line-up, and what is YOUR prediction on the result today at the QE2 Stadium?

What is your score forecast? Please share your thoughts with others.

I would probably stick with the team that started at canvey unless brad is still injured then would have Micky on the right and Jordan in the centre. Harry on the bench as a very useful change in approach if necessary. It will be closer if 11v 11 but I fancied us to come through anyway. 3-1 to us.

Subs changed the game. We have a very good squad now. Sami Kirby and Ricky were missing as well.

 

I think Canvey's withdrawal of the obnoxious, but highly effective, Tambeson Eyong after 85 minutes was the key change. I can't help feeling he'd have cut out the balls that led to the two late goals.

Dominated the first half but found ourselves 2 down.Second half was the same then the subs and the game changed great spirit from the boys great goal from billy and it wasn't a penalty.lol.

Bobby looks like he has got his mojo back and that brilliant goal will do his confidence the world of good.

A very good all round effort. They demonstrated their fitness at the end as Canvey could not match them pace for pace. When Klangbeni was beating their number 9 all ends up in the second half and we had gone level at 2-2 you knew that if there was to be a result their could only be one winner.

      Good to drawn at home in the FA Cup today. An interesting match for everyone to look forward to. Be interested to hear other Towners thoughts, hopes, expectations for this match, which is worth quite a lot of prize money for the winners.

      Despite heavy rain, after a mid-morning pitch inspection, todays League fixture against Harrow Borough at Earlsmead Stadium, is expected to go ahead, subject to there not being a deluge before kick off.

      Town have already played Harrow twice this season at the QE2 Stadium, beating their Middlesex rivals 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup, and 3-0 in the League on New Year's Day.

      Todays third encounter will be far from a pushover, and Town will need to build on their recent improved performances and results, if we are to collect maximum points on this wet Bank Holiday afternoon. Good luck to Andy and the boys!  COYT

      Tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon Town extend a warm welcome to our opponents Met Police for our third Bostik League Premier Division fixture of the season at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. KO 3.00pm.
       
      Last Tuesday evening, while we were losing 3-0 at Hendon in a challenging North London derby, the Blues went down by a similar margin, losing 4-1 away to newly promoted side Dorking Wanderers. The Met won their opening home match, beating Worthing 3-1 at Imber Court.
       
      Both teams will be looking to bounce back this weekend, after their disappointing mid-week defeats, and another very close, tight contest is in prospect.
       
      Next April is a long way off, there are 44 more league fixtures left, so plenty of points to play for, and Andy, Darren, and our new squad of players, deserve plenty of noisy support and encouragement tomorrow, as they battle to secure our first win of the season.
       
      GOOD LUCK, LADS!

      READY TO GO!
       
      It's back, and there is plenty to look forward to on Saturday afternoon, when Town host Folkestone Invicta at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, in our opening Bostik League Premier Division fixture.
       
      After all the comings and goings during the summer, optimism is high that Town can make a good start to the new season, with our new management duo Andy Leese and Darren Purse in charge, and an impressive squad of quality close season signings.
       
      Be interesting to hear peoples thoughts on how Town are probably going to line-up against Invicta on Saturday afternoon.
       
      Folkestone seem likely to be without striker Joe Taylor and influential mid-fielder Micheal Everitt for this match. Taylor has damaged his knee, whilst Everitt picked up a groin strain last weekend.
       
      Last season, back in April, Town beat Invicta 3-1 at the QE Stadium. Will we chalk up another win? What do you think? How do you see the outcome?
       
      One thing for sure, this is going to be another close, very exciting match. Let's be there to show our support for Andy and our guys, as they look to deliver our first win of the new season.

      Earlier today Town travelled up to the West Midlands for a commemorative friendly match against Highgate United at The Coppice this afternoon (3.00pm).

      The match has special significance for those of us who were at that fateful Highgate United v Enfield FC, FA Amateur Cup game, 50 years ago, and witnessed Highgate player Tony Allden being struck by lightning and dying shortly after.

      Today, as we remember that very sad event, the occasion and ongoing friendship between the two clubs, seems much more important than the outcome.
