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!

Looking at the Ryman Premier Division table, it's anyone's guess who will finish as champions this season. Bognor and Havant are neck and neck. Havant are one point behind Bognor with two games in hand. So, if Bognor drop points at home to Leatherhead, and Havant secured an unlikely win at the QE Stadium tomorrow, they would go top. But that isn't going to happen...is it?

Before the inquest I have to say some of the best finishing I've seen this season.... They had us worked out... soak up pressure then quick counter attacks again and again which even though we had enough warnings we did nothing to plug the gaps... some fantastic substitutions from Quinton ... Samir for Tyler... Darnell for Bobby and himself for mickey..... eight games to go would love to see changes now so we can start new season with fresh hope....

Agree with above.

I thought the first half we matched them but two goals in quick concession killed us and we folded.

They are a good typical conference south side and were well disciplined.

Not sure why Riccy wasn't in the squad today,we miss him.

I think we had 1 clear shot at goal in 90 mins and that was the pen disgraceful we must be a laughing stock now  shot from wherever  it goes in  why don't we try that approach

Another poor home result. It's becoming common now. Our last home win was against Grays in January. Since then there have been 3 defeats and 1 draw and 2 of those games were against relegation candidates. The inconsistency is strange because on our day we are the best team in the league. We showed it against Finchley, Harrow, Worthing and Havant away.

 

Today's result just followed a recent pattern. Tried a lot but no cutting edge and ability to put it in the net

Scott and riccy should both be available again next Sat.

Thought out defence today was poor,but i guess its been a long time since I've been able to say that.

Go again Sat lads.

Surely it's now time to start trying something new. What can we lose. Rather now

than the first 4/5 games next season when we are still searching for a side.

 

It must be obverse to most supporters that constant balls in the air to HO has

been a disaster, not for the want of trying by HO, but because it is so easy to defend against.

 

Over the course of this season we should now be able to recognise what is required for a team to gain promotion from this league. I don't wish to sound disloyal but we have quite a way to go to achieve this. Yes we have some very good players but from what I have seen ,to compete at the top of this league, we have still some way to go.

 

It is essential that steps are taken now to retain the best of our players.

It is also the time for a general re-think by the management with the view to

formulating a realistic plan as how best to achieve this. It would also be good to see a policy statement as to the direction they wish to take the club,

particularly if they wish to raise more revenue.

Because to go onwards and upwards means that more income will be required.. Easier said

than done.

      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!

      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.
