Enfield Town’s new era under Gavin Macpherson and his management team gets under way on Aug 12 with a home game against Concord Rangers, a mouth-watering start to the 2023-4 league season.
The Beach Boys were relegated from National League South at the end of the last campaign after a decade-long stay at Step 2 and are likely to provide a strong challenge for our opening game.
Three days after the Concord game, we make the short trip to Potters Bar for the first in what promises to be a series of eagerly awaited derby games throughout the season. Among the signings so far for Max Mitchell’s Scholars is 38-year-old defender Rickie Hayles from Hornchurch.
Rounding off the first week of the season, on Aug 19 we visit Folkestone aiming to gain revenge for that 3-0 defeat deep into February last season. This time the game takes place on a Saturday afternoon in summer, a far more palatable occasion on the Kent coast for travelling Town fans.
Our entire league programme will be published shortly on the website.
