Isthmian League Premier Division. Tuesday 28 February 2017.
The Blues make a midweek trip in to London to visit Enfield Town on Tuesday night.
Enfield Town F.C. was formed in 2001 and joined the Essex Senior League. Their first competitive match was at nearby Gardiners Lane, home of Basildon United. Enfield Town won the match, which I witnessed (and wrote the matchday programme).
They were promoted to Isthmian League Premier Division at the end of the 2011-12 season by beating Grays Athletic and Needham Market in the Division 1 North play-offs. This was the season that Billericay Town won the Isthmian Premier and were promoted to the Conference South.
Enfield have won 2 of their last 5 matches, 3 in the last 10. The most recent victory was a 3-1 away win at Worthing. On Saturday they made the long journey in to Suffolk only to be beaten by Lowestoft Town.
The Towners are currently sitting 8th, two places and three points ahead of The Blues.
The two clubs haven’t met yet this season. The first meeting between the two was at New Lodge in the Third Qualifying Round of the 2012-13 FA Trophy. Jay May, Glenn Poole and Rob Swaine all scored for The Blues as they progressed with a 3-2 win.

Head to Head
The two clubs have met 9 times with The Blues winning four, Enfield winning three and two draws. Billericay have scored 16 times against Enfield whilst conceding 14.
Joe Ellul is serving a ban having been sent off against South Park whilst Rob Swaine’s fitness is in doubt. As such Alex Stephenson has been recalled from his loan at Bishop’s Stortford.
Tambeson Eyong is suffering with the flu so is also doubtful
