Enfield Town v Leatherhead
Saturday 3 Oct – kick off 3pm
Ryman League Premier Division
Queen Elizabeth II Stadium
3 Donkey Lane
Enfield EN1 3PL
Quality football. Quality atmosphere. Quality day out. If you’ve got one place to be on saturday afternoon it’s up above north London. With Arsenal and Tottenham playing sunday, the likelihood of a few north London faces making their way to one of the best grounds in non league, for a better class of football, is definitely on the cards. And if they do they’re in for a treat. Enfield are on a bit of a role and backed with the all singing ultras and a bit of bright sunshine expected, Donkey Lane is the place to be…
Town are at home for the second week running when they take on Leatherhead at Donkey Lane this saturday.
There have been some recent comings and goings at Fetcham Grove recently as manager Richard Brady looks to invigorate his squad. Wes Daly and Isaac Nehemie have just joined, with Daly having an immediate impact in their impressive win over Grays Athletic on Wednesday night. A good way for them to warm up for our match on Saturday.
Josh Gallagher will also be one to watch as his two first half goals put 2nd placed Grays on the back foot. It seems to have stopped the slide down the table which has been happening recently and put the Tanners back in the right frame of mind after their 5-2 mauling by Hendon last weekend. Excitement is fairly guaranteed in this game as Leatherhead have already been involved in some high scoring encounters this season including 4-4 draws with East Thurrock and Canvey. So we could see some goals.
Town continued their improved form and the slow climb away from the wrong end of the table with an at times hectic win over Harrow in mid-week. Dernell Wynter gave them a brief first half lead, but Samir Bihmoutine sealed the win with a late goal from close range after a mistake by Harrow’s Ben Goode. This was an equally impressive win by Town over a third placed Harrow side in good form. Town will be hoping to keep this run going and will be looking for a win. But it won’t be easy with both teams separated by a single point and a single league place, this is an important game for both sides.
