Town face a difficult task this weekend, when they make the short journey to Summers Lane tomorrow, to face north London rivals Wingate and Finchley in the Ryman Premier Division.

 

After the hammer-blow of two successive defeats, everyone will be expecting Town to produce a much improved team performance in this match, to get our play-off hopes back on track.

 

It certainly won't be easy. Wingate and Finchley are top of the Ryman Premier Division form table, based on the last 10 matches, with 6 wins and 4 draws. Their last league defeat was against Met Police back in December, 2-0 at Imber Court.

 

On an encouraging, optimistic note, last season we went to Summers Lane, gave a good account of ourselves, and won 1-2. Be great to think we will replicate that performance and result tomorrow.

 

Let's hear plenty of vocal support for Brad and the boys at Summers Lane, as they battle for three vital points.

 

Good luck everyone!

We've just added a third!!!!

Guess who scored it?  No prizes for guessing - yes, it's Karl Oliyide after 31mins. Now 0-3 to Town.

Think your headline is perfect CC.

HT: Wingate & Finchley 0-3 Enfield Town

 

No shortage of entertainment and plenty for the Town faithful to shout about at Summers Lane this afternoon. Three different scorers for Town, and great to see Karl Oliyide get his name on the score sheet on his debut for the club.

 

Credit to our guys for a great first half performance. Can we build on this in the second half?

Full Time:  Wingate & Finchley  1-5  Enfield Town

WOW......I don't think anyone could have predicted this score! What an amazing result and outstanding team performance from Town today. Congratulations all round. If we can keep this up we will be well and truly back in the frame. Did our new striker make all the difference? Let's have your own thoughts on todays match. Well done everybody!

Wow ! Mr Hyde was nowhere to be seen today as Dr. Jeckyll definitely turned up ! From 1 to 11 we were superb playing great attacking football. The introduction of Karl Oleyide to the front three reaped rewards everytime that we went forward and culminated in us being three up at HT with all three forwards on the score sheet. Second half we didn't take our foot of the gas and bagged another couple. Wingate didn't play badly they just came up against a beast of an opponent today.

 

Credit to the Wingate supporters, all 9 of them stayed 'til the bitter end !

 

Well done everybody, that was a special day !

That was enjoyable, it shows our potential is real. We have a very difficult but doable challenge. 14 games left and in my opinion we need 10 wins to nick a play off spot , saying that we have Cup Final like fixtures to play in including away matches at Tonbridge, Harlow, Billericay, Worthing, Needham as well as home games v Bognor, Havant Billericay and Leiston. The likes of Grays, Leatherhead and Merstham will be fighting for survival when they play us too. It's gonna be squueezy bum time, but we wouldn't have it any other way, would we?

Looks like Brad might have made his most important signing of the season - a quality striker.

 

As EU rightly points out, we have some difficult matches coming up, home and away. They won't be easy, but now we have extra fire-power up front, it inspires renewed optimism that we can tuck away more chances, turn draws into wins, and still have hope of making the play-offs.

 

To succeed, we need to be fear-less, and play with determination, conviction, pride, and a huge amount of self-belief. It's time for everyone to stand up and be counted, and give everything until the last match, so we end this season on a high note.

 

Saturday showed what is possible. We need to take the positives from this match, build on it, and go out and fight to the end. Good luck guys!

      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.
