One helluva mouth-watering Premier Division clash in prospect, under the lights at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, when The Town host Essex rivals Billericay Town, in a match eagerly awaited by both sets of fans.

 

The two clubs haven't met yet this season, but Town are currently 8th in the table, two places and three points ahead of The Blues, so plenty to play for in what should be very close, highly competitive encounter.

 

Last season we drew 2-2 at home with our visitors in the league, and lost 3-0 at New Lodge. But, in the Second Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup, we came away from New Lodge with a 1-1 draw, before winning the replay 2-0 at home.

 

No team news available so far for The Town, but Joe Ellul will not be in The Blues line-up, as he is serving a ban, while Rob Swaine and Tambeson Eyong are both rated doubtful for this match.

 

Very best of luck to Brad and the boys in this match. Let's give it a real go guys, give the home fans plenty to shout about, and deliver another three points.

We played with a lot of width tonight. John Muleba sat on the right touch line for all of the game and a lot of the ball found him. What disappointed me tonight was that we didn't start the game with

Theodopolus I agree with you on this one mate. I know the keeper was upset with the abuse and so was his young family.!!! Banter is good vile personal abuse definitely has no place at our club. I

Not sure how many things you can get wrong in a couple of sentences?? But will pull you up on a few if i may.   1.I did not suggest the Billericay keeper last night was the one accused of spitting.W

The new owner of BTFC has announced/tweeted a winger from the Vanarama National has been signed today and will be involved tomorrow. And also a "BIG GUN" with football league and international experience who will be involved in their game on Saturday...... rumour is it's Paul Konchesky who was last with League One side Gillingham.

 

There is nothing we would like more than a home win tomorrow... Come on you Towners!

Billericay's big-spending new owner Glenn Tamplin has already made a raft of new signings, with more to follow, and their wage bill is already around £9,000 a week.

Tamplin's aim is to win the Ryman Premier Division  next season, and then go on and win the National League South. It will be interesting to see if this happens. Having a money man involved, certainly makes it easier to attract experienced players, but it doesn't necessarily guarantee immediate success. Time will tell !

The Blues have won seven of their last eight matches. Ten days ago bottom of the table Grays Athletic beat them 1-0.

Latest News

Billericay have just signed today Mekhi McLeod from Eastleigh. The pacey winger has previously played at youth level for Fulham, Wolves, and Rangers in Scotland, before joining Ware, VCD Athletic, and Eastleigh. He could make his debut this evening.

Even if they do gain short term success they will no doubt go the same way as other Essex teams that have had big money injected into them for brief amount of time.

 

Remember Canvey and Grays ..Rising briefly through the pyramid only to return as low (if not lower) than they were before the money men took over and subsequently pulled out.

Oh come on LS. How on earth do you know they will go the same way as other Essex teams? Why not just concentrate all our thoughts and efforts on our team rather than other teams.

You're quite right - the trouble with these 'money men' is that you're always just waiting for the party to stop. Mr. Tamplin can't possibly get any kind of financial return on the large sums he's pumping in. So either the money runs out, or he gets bored and moves on. Either way it doesn't seem sustainable in the long term.

 

Billericay were struggling following their relatively recent relegation, so I say good luck to them. I just hope the bubble doesn't burst.

 

It looks like Margate might be on the way back down. Another team which had some money for a short while...

That was a cracking game ! At 2-0 down so early in the game, I thought that we were going to get battered. However, a stupid last man challenge, saw their defender rightly sent off and then we started to play a bit. The first goal was a brilliantly worked free kick and the second a headed goal by Oleyide ( I think ), which was the result of a fine team move. The second half we had enough chances to win two matches but either couldn't convert them or their keeper saved it. They've spent a lot of money and it shows in some of their players but alas, it was another two points lost !

Says volumes, " we had enough chances to have won two games". Where have I heard that before?

 

Basically what I understand, from Seaside T observations,  is that we were outplayed until they lost a defender. We then played nearly 70 minutes against 10 men and still came up short. 

 

Still a reluctance to change the system. Continually playing up to HO, with his back to goal is not the answer. I do hope the penny drops and we come up with some thing else by next season. Obviously

BQ has lost faith in Wynter's ability, otherwise he would have brought him on to add width and pace to the attack against a depleted side.

We played with a lot of width tonight. John Muleba sat on the right touch line for all of the game and a lot of the ball found him. What disappointed me tonight was that we didn't start the game with Tyler on the other wing doing the same thing. Samir Bihmoutine seems to be a shadow of his former self and seems to have lost belief in his attacking prowess. He should have been swapped for Tyler as soon as they went down to Ten. You can't have a go at any of them tonight, they threw the kitchen sink at them and but for a bit of luck, would have won that comfortably. Edit to add that Dernell did come on for the last 7-10 mins for Harry.

A very enjoyable game spoilt for me by the disgusting abuse aimed at the Billericay keeper... for the first time in my life I was embarrassed to be a town fan... this is a family club for gods sake and if I bought my kids for the first time last night they would not go back .... i know there is no love lost but the boundary of banter and vile abuse was well crossed and I hope any kids there that heard it doesn't think this is acceptable....

I thought we played the ball very quickly and on the floor last night and put them under immense pressure for 70 mins.

Billericay deserve credit for the way they defended and for the fact that at last have a team that want to play football and not thugs.Still not sure about there manager though,he was reasonably subdued last night and the players dont seem to be listening to him,probably because they are bigger and better than him.

But the Town were right on it last night well done brad and the boys.

I agree with you on this one mate.

I know the keeper was upset with the abuse and so was his young family.!!!

Banter is good vile personal abuse definitely has no place at our club.

I actually stood at the opposite end last night and the riccy fans were having banter with Nathan but not once did it become vile or personal

      Looking forward to our first ever visit to the Westhumble Community Stadium this evening, where we face Dorking in our next Bostik League Premier Division fixture. This may also be our last visit to this ground, as Wanderers will be moving, sometime in the near future, to their new MeadowBank Stadium a short distance away.

      After securing promotion last season, Wanderers have settled well in the Premier Division, and produced some decent results. Town beat them 3-2 in a tight game, at the QEII Stadium earlier in the season, but will need to dig deep tonight, and put in a good shift, with plenty of pride, passion and determination, if we are to get a result against very capable opponents.

      Best of luck to Andy and the boys. COYT

      After Saturdays amazing, incident-packed match at the Gallagher Stadium, which saw a superb all-round performance by the Town team, we go again against Maidstone United at the QE2 Stadium tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, with a place in the FA Cup 1st Round Proper, the prize up for grabs, for the winners of this replay.

      Whilst it was disappointing to concede an equaliser in the last seconds of added time on Saturday, we saw enough from Maidstone on Saturday to know they are a very good side, and it should be noted that their away league form is better than their home. The replay will be equally challenging as the first match, and we will definitely need to be on top of our game to progress.

      The Stone's, ninth in the National League, will be trying to reach the first round proper for the fourth season running, tomorrow evening, while Town will be looking for a win to create a bit of history themselves.

      Can we do it? You bet we can! Shock results happen all the time in the FA Cup. Town are unbeaten at home this season, have now gone eight games without defeat, are playing with plenty of confidence, and will be looking to make home advantage tell, in front of a large, noisy North London crowd.

      The travelling support for our guys at the Gallagher Stadium on Saturday was absolutely top-draw, up there with the best! Fantastic, well done everyone, let's have more of the same and raise the roof tomorrow evening. Our team deserves maximum support and encouragement for the task ahead!

      Good luck everyone! See you there.

      Let's hear it for Andy and the boys!

      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.!

      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!

      After sharing the points in our opening home match of the season, Town face North London rivals Hendon tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, at the Silver Jubilee Park Stadium, in Kingsbury, for our next Bostik League Premier Division fixture.
       
      Last weekend, Gary McCann's side gave a positive performance at Tonbridge Angels, but came away empty-handed, with the home side winning 1-0.
       
      Early days, but both teams will be going flat-out to improve on their opening performance and result, and secure their first win of the season.
       
      Best of luck to Andy, Darren and the boys. Let's give it a real go guys, with a high-energy, top quality performance, that delivers three points.
