Fenix Finale Awaits Town

 Enfield Town’s final group game in the Fenix Trophy takes place tomorrow as we head to Wales to face Llantwit Major (kickoff 5pm) needing to avoid defeat to guarantee a place in the eagerly anticipated “Final Four” on Lake Garda in May.

Whilst we are virtually qualified anyway following our 3-2 win in the corresponding fixture, giving us maximum points from three games and a healthy goal difference, mathematically we still need to get something on Tuesday to avoid the group going down to the last match between the Welsh club and already eliminated BK Skjold at the end of the month.

With our all-important playoff place in the league taking priority, Gavin Macpherson seems likely to go deep into the squad  whilst at the same time fielding a side to get us over the line.

Town’s visit represents Llantwit’s final home game of the season with two away league fixtures to come as they battle for survival in Cymru south, the second tier of Welsh football.

With the competition having generated huge publicity for us in the national as well as local media, qualifying for Italy would be a wonderful way to cap off the season. But first we have to make sure.

“Some of our bigger players are not available Tuesday so there are bound to be changes,” said Gav. “Based upon our position in the league, it’s a massively difficult fixture now to navigate and I’m going to have to try and piece things together.  I’ve got to look at it really carefully.”
