Town Out To Clip Gulls’ Wings

Having taken just five points from seven games, Enfield Town aim to snap out of a disappointing run of form tomorrow with a visit to Canvey Island.

Canvey may sit 13th in the table but they have been impressive at home, winning their last three league games.

Having said that they have had a tough week and just like Town will be looking for a response.

Last Saturday a depleted Canvey lost 5-1 on the road at Chatham Town and then crashed out of the Essex Senior Cup at the 4th Round stage to Buckhurst Hill.

There are a handful of minibus seats remaining at £15 with departure time 12.30 from Donkey Lane. Contact Ram at

We may have beaten the Gulls 3-0 at our place earlier in the season but Gavin Macpherson is under no illusions about how challenging it will be to get back to winning ways after our recent blip.

“You always have to be conscious of how you can motivate your players. But for Canvey, it’s about how our mindset is for the game following two defeats,” said Gavin.

“We’ve got to play really well it’s as simple as that. They’re a good team with and without the ball, we’ve got to be better than we have been recently to get a result.

“Some of our lads who attended the fans Q+A (at the AGM) after training will be fully aware just how much our supporters are behind them. That should be motivation enough for us all to be better.”
