Experienced midfielder Steve Wales scored the only goal of a largely forgettable game on 68 minutes to earn three valuable points and the local bragging rights for Wingate and Finchley in the Ryman Premier Division against Enfield Town. It was a real scrappy affair with the goal and Town's Dernell Wynter having a shot well saved by Shane Gore just after half time the only real memorable goal mouth action. With so may of the previous games between the two local rivals being action and incident packed this one will go down as one to forget especially for The Towners.
|FANS BUT NO FLAGS TODAY FOR WINGATE BUT THEY ALL WENT HOME VERY HAPPY|

It's not all doom and gloom for Enfield Town as looking at the table a victory at Kingstonian on Monday evening could see us move up eighth place ahead of Billericay Town!
With some hard work and graft both on the pitch and off it on the training ground it is my belief the team and squad assembled by Bradley Quinton can start pushing up the table.

Elsewhere in the league Bognor Regis Town and Needham Market kept up the pressure on the top two of Leiston and Havant & Waterlooville who weren't in action.
Leiston were in Emirates FA Cup action and were shocked by Midland League Premier Division (Step Five) Westfields who won 2-1 to reach the First Round Proper for the first time in their history - the further previous they have got was the second qualifying round in 2012/13.
Merstham got the result of day for the Ryman Premier Division as they beat Vanarama South side Ebbsfleet United 2-1 to reach the First Round Proper also for the first time in their history. Hendon (3-0 at Boreham Wood), Billericay Town (3-1 at Maidstone United), Burgess Hill Town (0-5 at home to Dover Athletic) and Tonbridge (0-3 at home to Dartford) were all knocked out with Harrow Borough in the hat after drawing 2-2 with Margate - they face a mid-week replay in Kent.
