The pitch at Theobalds Lane was in a very good condition..Congratulations must go to their grounds-people

In glorious sunshine Enfield Town recorded a fantastic 0-3 victory over their local rivals at Theobalds Lane yesterday. Cheshunt put up a spirited display on a very good pitch and did have a few chances to score especially in the second half but found the Town back line and goalkeeper Rob Blackburne not in a giving mood as Adam Wallace with a brace and Walid Matata did the damage scoring the all important goals. Special mention has to go to Jey Siva on the left wing who put in a brilliant Man of the Match performance playing a part in the build up in all three goals and putting over numerous crosses into the danger area with his sweet left foot. Walid Matata also ran his socks off up front which in the blistering heat must of taken a big effort.

Adam Wallace celebrates the second of his two goals
Elsewhere, What everyone expected happened as Wingate and Finchley's hammering of basement dweller's Waltham Forest put an end to Town's outside chance of qualifying for a play-off place but all is not lost as Steve Newing now has a squad of players well capable of making a challenge next season. With a little bit of luck this year and a few less injuries to some key players it could of been a different story this season - For now Enfield Town fans can claim local bragging rights after a few Cheshunt supporters did when they won 1-2 at Goldsdown Road earlier in the season. Lots is written about THE ONLY WAY IS ESSEX or T.O.W.I.E in it's shortened form.The cold end says T.O.W.I.E can only mean one thing - THE ONLY WAY IS ENFIELD!!!

The second goal Enfield Town scored got supporters talking as Adam Wallace's shot was well saved by the Cheshunt keeper only for the ball to, unluckily for him, drop down into the goalmouth right on the line. Some fan's said the ball had crossed the line before Walid Matata knocked it into the net meaning Adam could claim a hat-trick. However, as these cold end exclusive pictures (stills taken from the video) show Walid was right to celebrate and claim the goal was his as he got the all important touch on the ball to score the goal.

The ball still on the line very close to the Cheshunt defender's boot desperately trying to clear it

If you weren't there or want to revisit the action the match highlights are below. Well worth a watch especially for Jey Siva's cross for the third goal and Adam Wallace's finish with the outside of his boot. High quality football in the Ryman League Division One (North)!!!
