The web site has now been completely upgraded. Please bear with us if there are any teething troubles. Hopefully these should not show up too often as the new version of the site has been tested over the last month or so.
The advantages of the new version of the site are mainly to do with upgrades but you should also feel the benefit now that it is much easier to add extra links to the menu and other sweeping changes can be made across the site as a whole in a much shorter time than under the old system.

Horny handed sons of toil
Back to nature? It certainly was down at Brimsdown on Monday when a hardy
gang set about spreading twenty tonnes of topsoil on the pitch as part of
the pitch improvement programme planned for the summer. Roy Butler was
directing operations and everything went according to plan, apart from the
rain that is! Well done to all those who volunteered to help out. A job well

11th May 2005
Following a meeting of the Alliance Committee today, it was agreed to
recommend to the Leagues Committee that the nine champion clubs from the
Step 5 Leagues be promoted to Step 4 for Season 2005/06. This alleviates the
necessity for play-off matches.These clubs will be joined by Enfield FC who
finished as runners-up in the Isthmian League Division Two.
This additional place allocated to the Isthmian League Division Two is as a
result of an agreement between the Isthmian League and its former feeder
leagues which allowed for two promotion places, this being the final Season
for this agreement.
Subject to ratification by the Leagues Committee the promoted clubs have
been placed in the following competitions:
Northern Premier League Division One
Southern League Division One West
Southern League Division One East
Potters Bar Town
Isthmian League Division One
Lymington & New Milton FC
Whilst this exceeds the number of promotion places available, in the opinion
of the Committee, the decision to promote all champion clubs was in the best
interests of the game.
4th May 2005
We have now been advised that the promotion situation will not be finally confirmed until after appeals by Walton Casuals and Lymington & New Milton against their failed facility inspections have been heard. This will be on Tuesday 10 May, so the Enfield vs Winchester City play-off due to be played this Saturday has been postponed.

Goole FC (Northern Counties East League)
Ilford FC (Isthmian League)
Potters Bar Town FC (Spartan South Midlands League)

Enfield FC (Isthmian League)
Winchester City FC (Wessex League)

Enfield Town 1 Waltham Abbey 4
