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!
'COME ON YOU TOWN'
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.
After a fine win yesterday, Town make the short journey to The Harlow Arena tomorrow to face Harlow Town, in a must win crunch match as we close in on a place in the Ryman Premier Division play-offs.
The Hawks gained promotion to the Premier Division last season and are currently 9th in the table. We beat them 3-0 at Donkey Lane on Boxing Day. This match will be a tough challenge, but Town are on a good run, with six successive wins behind them, and certainly won't be taking the Hawks lightly.
Harlow have lost 6 home league matches this season, against Dulwich, AFC Sudbury, Lowestoft Town, Havant & Waterlooville, Billericay, and Leiston.
Brad and the boys know what needs to be done, and will have plenty of loud away support.
Good luck everyone. Let's hear it for the Town!
