Tomorrow (Saturday) Town travel to Fetcham to play Leatherhead in the Isthmian Premier Division, on the back of a very impressive performance and 2-0 win against League leaders Kingstonian at the QEII Stadium, earlier in the week, which lifted us up to third in the table.

Think it would be fair to say The Tanners have not made the best of starts to the new season and, after their 2-3 away defeat at Bognor on Tuesday evening, are currently bottom of the IPD table, with just 4 points from nine matches. Leatherhead have lost five of their last six matches, including a 7-0 defeat at Bishops Stortford. Their home defeats include Wingate & Finchley (1-2), Carshalton Athletic (0-3), and Worthing (0-4).

Town are playing well, and would hope to collect three points from this match, against a side at the wrong end of the table. This is a match where we need to show our quality and ambition, avoid a banana-skin, and confirm we are the whole package this season.

Good luck everyone. See you there. Let's hear plenty of noisy support and encouragement for Andy and our team.

Interesting question LH. The answer is that we don't yet know. 

What we do know is that when we play well there are fewer posts and when we play badly there are tons. On that basis I'm not surprised that our brilliant win against Kingstonians elicited relatively few posts.

1 x 7 = 7

2 x 7 = 14

3 x 7 = 21

4 x 7 = 28

5 x 7 = 34

No one will mention the first four, but they certainly let me know I got the last one wrong.

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE 

This has been quite a week for The Town. We have played and defeated two Surrey sides in Isthmian Premier Division fixtures, one top, one bottom of the table, have scored 5 goals in the process, and kept two clean sheets.

Yesterday, Towners who made the trip to Fetcham Grove, saw Andy Leese's players deliver a very impressive, totally dominant performance, and a well deserved win. Apart from the early missed penalty, Town could, and should, have quite easily doubled the final score, with the number of chances created which somehow went begging. You could be forgiven for thinking the Tanners got off lightly. They did !

Town are on a roll, and with two important league fixtures this week at the QE2 Stadium, Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday evening, and Worthing next Saturday, we have a great chance to extend our unbeaten home record, and maintain our serious challenge for the play-offs or beyond.

If Town continue to show the desire, the work ethic, the skillset, displayed against pace-setters Kingstonian earlier in the week, and Leatherhead yesterday, anything is possible this season. I find that pretty exciting ... don't you ??

Keep the faith. See you Tuesday evening.   COYT

To Cor: I say very pleased. See my post on the reports of the Leatherhead games.

To BU I say, putting your words into other peoples mouths makes a very one sided conversation!!

To both of you I also say, I am finding it difficult to make any worthwhile comments just now as I am otherwise physically engaged. Which leaves me laying around for a few days. 

However, it might surprise you both but I am pleased that someone has changed his stance as to the best way for us to play.  In fact I may be feeling a little smug because, together with my fellow believers, he may have seen the light.

Couldn’t make it to Leatherhead in time but saw Bognor scrape a win at Cheshunt and there was nothing there to worry us and they are second… If we keep our front four fit I think we are certainties for at least a play off place and can see us challenging for the title… In the past I have never been a Andy Leese fan but somehow someway he has got a quality team together and an attacking style that will break open any defence… absolutely no negative comments from me as long as we keep up this approach…

Agree with Theodopolous. Albeit only 9 games in Andy has assembled a blend of experience and youth.

contrary to previous postings from contributors on here stating ‘no one wants to play for him’ we’ve seen Lyle DV, Mo, Billy all returning having disappeared for one reason or another.

The team spirit looks be be excellent too. The only difficulty is keeping players like Cunnington Bricknell,  Harold J, Youngs and Taffe happy when sitting on the bench. Bet that’s not a cheap Subs Bench either

Above all it’s about positivity breeding positivity from supporters to boardroom from Stewards to the Management team. 

Fingers Crossed for this Tuesday and Saturday

Like Theo, I have only wanted a change of direction in the teams pattern of play so that they could show their full potential. This is now happening and from what I have read has resulted in  making everyone, including me,  buoyant.

In passing, I may be wrong BU, but I don't recognise anyone writing " no one wants to play for him ". I suppose it depends on how you decide to construe their words!!

Also if you have ever played you would know that points from games in hand are meaningless unless achieved. Consequently again your assumption of my thought process is way off. 

But let's not dwell on the past but enjoy the moment for as long may it lasts. To a good outcome...🤞🤞.

      After our thrilling draw with Worthing last weekend, Town hit the road again today for our next Isthmian League-Premier Division fixture at Rookery Hill, against East Thurrock United.

      Our opponent's are currently 18th in the table, with 9 points from 11 matches. They have lost 4 of their last 6 matches, including a 1-2 home defeat against Bishops Stortford on Tuesday evening.

      We go into this match top of the table, with 7 wins, 2 draws, and 2 defeats, from our first 11 league matches. East Thurrock will be battling hard today, to improve their recent run of results, while Town will be looking to maintain their impressive run of form, and collect another three away points to cement our promotion challenge.

      Good luck Towners. Let's have your thoughts on the match and result.

      Welcome The Mackerel Men !
      This Saturday league leaders Town go head-to-head with pre-season title favourites Worthing at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium, in what should be one of the closest, most exciting matches of the season.

      Both teams are in good form, and will fancy their chances. Town have a !00% home record, conceding only one league goal to date at the QE2 stadium. The Mackerel Men from West Sussex, played away to Kingstonian on Wednesday evening, and registered an impressive  3-4 win, to go second in the table, just one point behind Town with one game in hand.

      There should be a bumper crowd for this eagerly awaited match. Both teams will be well supported, and there should be a great atmosphere. Definitely an unmissable match !

      Let's really get behind The Town tomorrow, and give Andy Leese and our players maximum vocal support and encouragement throughout this top of the table battle.

      Good luck everyone. See you there.

      After the excitement of the FA Cup, we return to Isthmian Premier Division action tomorrow (Tuesday) evening when we entertain table toppers Kingstonian at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium. KO 7.45pm.

      This should be another close encounter between the two sides, and Town will be looking to get back to winning ways, and secure three points to close the gap at the top of the table, before we visit Leatherhead this weekend.

      Don't know how many Towners take a look at our opponent's website before a match, but sometimes it can be quite rewarding. Kingstonian have a good website, and their profile of tomorrow nights match, called ' Grier's Guide to Enfield Town' is well worth a read, and it might tell you some things you perhaps didn't know. It can be found on the following link :-  www.kingstonian.com/match/2021-2022/isthmian-football-league-premier-division/enfield-town/kingstonian/392559/preview

      Good luck tomorrow night everyone. Enjoy the match and let's have plenty of noisy support for Andy and our team.

      Very best of luck to our players, officials and supporters, for our Isthmian Premier League match against Lewes at the Dripping Pan this afternoon.

      It's going to be a tough game, but we travel in confident mood, second in the table, have a good side, and are unbeaten home or away this season to date.

      Let's hope we can add to those successes, chalk up another away win, with three points from our visit to East Sussex.
