An Enfield Town XI managed by reserve boss Ram Ismail played Cockfosters of the Spartan South Midlands League Division One at Chalk Lane this afternoon. On a nice warm day with the sunshine blazing the game finished 1-1 with Cockfosters scoring after 12 minutes and Town's goal coming after around 40 minutes through Aaron Cato who if luck was going his way could of easily scored a hat-trick during his time on the pitch. Recognisable names appearing for Town fans were Richard Morton, Cato, Daniel Jones and Izci Eren.

In the second half both sides had chances to win the game with both goalkeeper's performing well making a number of good stops. Cato had a chance well saved by the Cockfoster's keeper when clean through on goal and substitute Daniel Ailey (who scored a hat-trick in one half on Thursday night against Goffs Oak) rattling the cross-bar with his first touch. Ailey spent last season with Haringey Borough and also plays for the Great British Deaf Football Team. He looks a good player and certainly knows where the goal is.

Some took advantage of the gap in the fence to watch the cricket game going on next door during a break in play

With the tackles flying in, especially in the first half. the game did threaten to boil over at one point

Ram does his Phil Brown impression by giving his half time team talk on the pitch 

The above two photos hopefully have a 'retro feel' to them as they were taken with the 'retro' setting in place on the cold end camera.
