Saturday 9 January 2016 fixtures

Dulwich Hamlet vs Enfield Town

Saturday 9 Jan – kick off 3pm
Ryman League Premier Division
Champion Hill Stadium
Edgar Kail Way
Dog Kennel Hill
London SE22 8BD
» Location

This is the big one, the battle of the non-league ultras. A kind of north-south London West Side Story on the terraces of Tuscany twin-town Champion Hill. It could get dirty, it’s certainly going to get loud. Every Guardianista will be down with their iphone’s set on selfie but don’t let that put you off, Enfield are always value for money and their fans actually own their club, yes they do.

Here’s what the Towners have to say about their chances:
It’s an exuberant Town team that travels south of the river with hopes of pulling off an upset against league leaders Dulwich Hamlet.

A win would also be a great way to celebrate the recent signing of a 99 year lease at Donkey Lane, securing the clubs home for the foreseeable future.

A big crowd is anticipated for the game at Champion Hill. There is no supporters coach being run to this one, but a large Town contingent is still expected to support Brad’s boys. Supporters are advised not to leave it late to enter the ground as the turnstiles are usually very busy just before kick off.

You don’t want to miss this one!

 

Canterbury City vs Fisher FC

Saturday 9 Jan – kick off 3pm
Southern Counties East
Homelands Stadium
Ashford Road
Kingsnorth
Ashford
Kent TN26 1NJ

Fisher need a win. And if the amount of energy, effort, commitment and sheer determination from everyone involved in the club is any indicator, they deserve a win. It’s not ‘pray to your prefered deity’ time yet but it’s not far off.

We can’t keep banging on how much passion there is around this club, it’s easy being fan-owned when you’re riding high in the league and every journalist in the country wants to be your friend, it takes guts, character and a boxer’s instinct for survival when you’re up against the ropes. Fisher though, south London to the core,  have got the guts and the strength to see themselves through.

Okay, hands up, being a fan-owned club is never easy, regardless of your situation, it means you’re destined to fight it out everytime you step out onto the field. It’s what makes it worth it.

Away games are always going to be a journey for Fisher in every sense of the word this season. We’ll be praying to the theme from sparta fc gods.


Tamworth FC vs FCUM 

Saturday 9 Jan – kick off 3pm
National League North
The Lamb Ground
Kettlebrook
Tamworth
Staffordshire B77 1AA
» Location

Another testing away game for Manchester’s finest. Struggling mid table but with a few recent wins to boost their confidence, including knocking league leaders Nuneaton off their perch, they’re up against a seventh place Tamworth side who have lost their last five competitive games, so they’re on a bit of a Winter wobble which could work in United’s favour especially if the travelling fans are in good voice. Another game that’s bound to fray the nerves of both sets of fans.
