Town sitting pretty at top of the table


Enfield Town 3 London APSA 0

Eastway Essex Senior League


Town put in a confident display to move to the top of the table.


Debutant Dean Green took just four minutes to settle the nerves when he headed home the opener.


It was ten minutes before APSA had their first break out of their own half.


Dean Nyman was doing well down the right and, on 13 minutes, cued up a shot, only to see it cut out for a corner.


David Allen then had a good chance with a header, but it whistled just past the post as Town kept the pressure on.


The deserved second came on 17 minutes. Green was brought down on the edge of the box and Rudi Hall curled the free-kick round the wall.


Lee Smith then had a good shot from close in but the keeper did well to block, and, a minute later, the same player came close with a header from a free-kick.


Town continued to dominate as Green drilled a shot just wide after first Smith and then Allen had shots blocked.


With the half winding down, the pace dropped, but Steve Baldwin was unlucky when his placed shot was palmed round the post by the busy APSA keeper.


Town started the second half strongly but without the intensity of the first period. APSA made some early substitutions and seemed to settle for damage limitation, as first Nyman was played in by Green, and then Smith and Matt Negus almost got through with a nice one-two, but Smith's shot was pushed wide by the keeper at the foot of the post.


APSA almost got back into the game with a superb free-kick from the halfway line by Bilal Bapu, his shot deserving more as it came back off the upright.


Town still had the upper hand, though, with Nyman blazing over from the edge of the box and Smith seeing his header evade the keeper, only to curl just outside the post.


Town seemed destined not to get a third until Carey Wright put over a good cross two minutes from the end and Sebastian Ndombe reacted first to drill the ball home.


Enfield Town entertain Hullbridge Sports this Saturday in another league fixture.

I think that's a bit unfair. I got in just as the game kicked off and by the time I got to the side of the pitch the ball was pinging around just outside our penalty area. It was the first goal that knocked the stuffing out of APSA. Admittedly we could have had more than the three goals had their keeper not led a charmed life as well as making two or three very good saves. But they certainly put together some good attacking play as the game kicked off.
