Enfield v Enfield?

You could hardly make it up. A potentially mouth-watering local derby awaits Enfield Town following the draw today for the 2nd qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Provided they win their replay against Hadley, Enfield FC – originally known as Enfield 1893 —  will be our visitors on September 18.

The match provides us with a fantastic chance of progressing further in the tournament but the management team will be taking nothing for granted against which ever of the two Step 5 teams we play.

If Enfield FC are our opponents, we are likely to see the return to the QE11 of the much-travelled Jamie Cureton, now player-manager at the Essex Senior League club, as well as former Spurs defender Razor Ruddock who is also involved with our neighbours.

Should Hadley win the first qualifying round replay, the Spartan South Midlands League side will travel the short distance from their home in Arkley, Barnet.

Ticket information will follow in the build-up to the game.
