Enfield Town 7 Greenwich Borough 1
By Graham Dodd
Another fine win for the under 23's/reserves
Town’s under 23’s/reserves extended their unbeaten run to 7 games on Wednesday with a comprehensive 7-1 win over a lively Greenwich Borough side with plenty of pace and ability, but whose defensive errors cost them dear. In truth, they were blown away by an explosive opening 20 minutes in which Town scored four times, with the opening goal being the best of the night. Rian Mc Clean started the move with a fine ball, but several one touches later and with the Borough defence carved open, Kyle Lynch scored from close range. Trying to play out from the back then cost them two goals in quick succession, as Town’s forward players hunted the ball down. Mason Tunbridge scored from the edge of the area and Blue Gallagher, returning to the club from a loan period, scored from close range.
When Jamie Doyle scored another from close range, spectators may have been speculating as to how many Town might score, but to their credit Greenwich kept trying to play, but were being restricted to long range efforts generally wide of the target, but Howell did score with a rocket into the top corner which gave Teddy Reynolds in goal no chance. Borough rallied a little, but Town kept their shape and defended well whilst still looking dangerous when they went forward, but Doyle hitting a post was the closest they came to scoring again.
The second half produced pretty much more of the same and Town were playing some great football with Tunbridge showing bis full range of skills on the ball. Luke Wright replaced Joe Devaney who had another fine game, Gallagher completed his hattrick before being replaced by debutant Joe Kossihos and Dante Mc Intosh replaced Doyle, before Lynch, after wasting a couple of decent chances, scored again. Town maintained their performance levels despite the changes and ran out more than worthy winners.
