Month: June 2020

Welcome!

You have reached the new-look Enfield Town Football Club website.

This site may look slimmer than what many of you have been used to, and that is fully intentional, in line with a number of comments received from supporters, including via a recent snapshot fan survey.

The site will aim to be simple, static and focused predominantly, although not exclusively, on the first team. It serve primarily as a historical record as time progresses, having been overtaken by social media as the first port-of-call for club news for many members and other supporters.

Looking ahead, the website will still be a source of official club news,  but it will not be updated as regularly or with the same degree of  immediacy as social media.  If you have any comments on the new website arrangements please address them to webteam@etfc.london

19 up for Town…

…time flies when you’re having fun!


On 23rd June 2001, members of what was then known as the Enfield Supporters Trust were successful in setting up a new football club, obtaining a groundshare arrangement with Brimsdown Sports & Social Club – and the rest, as they say, as history.

A month later, Enfield Town opened its’ doors for business for the first time and, in the process, welcomed back some old friends and began making many more new ones. Such was the level of interest in the club’s first fixture, a 1-1 friendly draw against landlords Brimsdown Rovers, that the kick off was delayed to allow an estimated 350 people access to the game.

From the subsequent first competitive game – a 3-2 win at Basildon – to the 1,000th – a 3-2 win at Cheshunt, and beyond – you can revisit all the major statistical milestones courtesy of club statistician Jim Cunneen here: https://website.etfc.london/information/documents as Town enters its 20th year of existence.

Shine a light for Enfield Town
The first supporter-owned club in the country formed in 2001, Enfield Town Football Club’s vision is to be an inclusive club for all and a football and social centre for the community, with a range of teams playing at the highest sustainable levels possible, and its growth is ongoing. The sustainable success of the club both on and off the field depends on its supporters and it has been lucky to have had a dedicated fan base and committed sponsors throughout its life, and has come a long way in a relatively short space of time.

The club moved into the refurbished Queen Elizabeth II Stadium in Donkey Lane, Enfield in 2011 and has since also been a major stakeholder, in partnership with the council, in the launch and use of additional 3G facilities close to the ground. Enfield Town FC Supporters Society members and other fans currently contribute regularly via various schemes, including monthly contribution and other subscription schemes, and the club simply could not survive without this generosity.

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2019-20 season for all Enfield Town FC teams was ended with results expunged, and there will be a fresh start for a new season whenever government guidelines indicate that it is safe to do so. With that in mind, and with a 2020-21 campaign start date unknown at this time, the club has been encouraged by the securing of the impact of COVID-19 relief grant funding, supplemented by vital ongoing donations, in order to help balance the books and keep the club ticking over during its mothballing for the foreseeable future. But there remains a lot of work to be done before football starts again.

We need £10,000!
