It couldn't get any tougher for Steve Newing's side this weekend when they travel to the reigning Ryman Premier Division champions Billericay Town in the FA Trophy 3rd Qualifying Round on Saturday. This article shows that The Blues are not taking the game lightly - article

Craig Edward's side have made a steady start to their first Blue Square South campaign winning five of their thirteen games so far. They have played eight home league games and have lost just once against Basingstoke Town (1-3). They have also played AFC Hornchurch and Cambridge City at New Lodge in the FA Cup. They beat their Essex rivals 3-1 but Cambridge City recorded a famous 2-4 victory in their 3rd Qualifying Round replay.

They have recently signed ex Spurs central defender Alton Thelwell from Carshalton Athletic but he is cup tied having played for The Robins in a previous round. Ex Grays Athletic striker Alex Osborn, whom is on loan from League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge, has been amongst the goals this season but he is currently out injured until at least Christmas.

Having said this the Essex club have a very strong squad so this will be Enfield Town's biggest challenge of the season. Ex Brentford and Barnet player (amongst a host of other clubs) Glen Poole also likes a goal scoring 10 goals already this season.

The winner of this tie will receive £4,000 prize money from the FA and also qualify for the first round proper of the FA Trophy and a chance of a potential game with one of the bigger teams in the Blue Square Premier.

A quick word of warning is that with playing a Blue Square South Step 2 side comes higher admission prices. It's £12 for adults, £8 for concessions and £3 for under 16’s.
