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!

Folkestone are making their first ever appearance at the QE2 Stadium this afternoon, having only managed to chalk up two away wins all season.

 

Town are flying at the moment, are firm favourite this afternoon, and I can't see anything other than a home win. What do you think guys?

Yes, focus needed today - not a game we can just expect to turn up and win. I'm sure Brad's well aware of that after some performances earlier in the season so let's get right behind them today.

Totally agree. It won't be easy, but we have the quality, desire, and momentum, and if we perform as we did against Bognor a couple of weeks back, I believe we will win this afternoon.

 

Good luck everyone, enjoy the match, and give them a shout for me!

Half Time: Enfield Town 2-0 Folkestone Invicta

 

A good first half for The Town who are well on top. Need more of the same after the interval.

 

Harlow now two behind at Bognor.

FT ETFC 3-1 Folkestone Invicta

 

Harlow lost 0-3, and had three red cards.

Leiston lost 4-2 but remain above us on goal difference.

Wingate  & Finchley also have same points as us, but a far worst goal difference.

      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

      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.
