Our games versus Corinthians have, so far, been tight affairs. We drew home and away last season and narrowly defeated them this season at The Goldsdown, so although they find themselves at the wrong end of the table again this year, we are more than aware of the need to perform well.
November was disastrous for them conceding 27 goals in 3 games but apart from that they have competed in most of their games this season.

We look to extend our unbeaten run to fifteen, which would be a remarkable achievement. We have continued to win games despite three players moving to Enfield Town; Leon Wilson being the most recent.

The rest of the League program this week is somewhat muted with only ten of the sixteen teams playing.

Mursley United v Wolverton Town
New Bradwell St Peter v Ealing Town
Pitstone & Ivinghoe v Aston Clinton
Tring Corinthians v Brimsdown
Willen v The 61 FC (Luton)

Division Two Cup Semi-Finals
Kent Athletic v Old Bradwell
Hale Leys v Grendon Rangers

An excellent opportunity for us to make more ground on Kent Athletic after their draw at home to Totternhoe last week as they have a cup semi-final this week. March will be interesting for them as they face us and New Bradwell away. Things could be decided in the March/April round robin between the three teams.

New Bradwell will fancy their chances at home to Ealing Town as they meet each other for the first time. Their 1-0 victory over The 61 FC (Luton) on Saturday will have lifted their spirits as they remain unbeaten in 2015. Ealing Town have lost their last five since beating Kent Athletic in November. Their lack of games this year has cost them dearly after showing some early promise.

Pitstone entertain Aston Clinton; one would favour the home side there, although Aston have had their moments this year, while I would expect The 61 to bounce back from recent defeats to take the points from Willen, especially as they thumped them 4-0 in November.

For us to win the League, we would have to win all of our remaining ten games and Hale Leys would have to lose four games out of their last nine. Good luck waiting for that, although you never know!!

To finish second we would have to be at least two points better than Kent Athletic and New Bradwell over the remaining ten fixtures. It is possible given our current form and the fact that we have them both at home. They also have to play eachother TWICE!! It is a possibility that they could kill each other; provided we keep winning, of course.

We are Home Bunnies in March, with five home games to play, so let us hope that the Easter bunny finds us in good spirits and second in the League (Easter Sunday is April 5th, by the way).


Saturday 28th February - Tring Corinthians 
Saturday 7th March - WOLVERTON TOWN

Saturday 14th March - OLD BRADWELL UNITED 
Saturday 28th March - KENT ATHLETIC

At present Enfield Town don't have games scheduled for the Tuesday night fixtures against Aston Clinton and Totternhoe. It would be great to see a few Towner's pop over and support The Limers after they have forged a great partnership with us over the past few months.
